Support your foundation
By Steve Nailor
Your support is vital to the expansion of our ministry to youth and men.
The foundation annually provides $155,500 to the Center for Men’s Ministry and the Center for Scouting Ministries and $8,000 for our prayer advocates.
As it stands today, we can only continue to support the above ministries at the same level for five more years.
It is important that we increase our funds to enable us to continue and grow the ministries. The foundation board has made a commitment to protect the corpuses in these accounts and only use the growth from the accounts to provide whatever ministries are needed.
One of the goals is to expand the focus on ministries for helping educate men in ways to address domestic violence and promote racial justice in their local communities. If you believe there should be other topics of concern, please email me.
In our last newsletter there was information about taking advantage of specific ways for reducing your tax burden and making contributions that will make a difference in people’s lives. Several men have begun taking advantage of this financial pathway.
There are three reasons why folks give to an organization:
Because they believe in the organization’s mission.
Because they have faith in the leadership of the organization.
Because they realize that lives are being
changed or affected by the ministry
United Methodist Men are doing all the above.
Thank you to the men who have recently given. The Heritage Fund increased by $10,000 in the last three months. Won’t you join them in donating today? Please visit our website and make your donation.
I invite you to take note of the back page of the fall edition of UMMen magazine or go to www.UMMMF.org. There you will find our mission statement and a link to the United Methodist Men Foundation.
