The Foundation grant program continues to grow in size and service thanks to the generous gifts of donors across our state. Gifts ranging from large estates to modest memorials continue to build the endowments that generate the grants and scholarships. (See past issues of the Foundation newsletters and Annual Reviews on this website to meet the people and read the stories behind many of these gifts.) Twice each year, the Foundation Board receives and considers proposals for ministry projects from United Methodist churches and related agencies throughout Missouri. Funding decisions are determined on a case-by-case basis and are dependent on funds available and the merits of each request. Applications must be postmarked by April 1 for Spring consideration or October 1 for Winter consideration.
