Our Mission

 

Building a foundation for thriving and faithful United Methodist churches and agencies in Western Pennsylvania.

 

The United Methodist Foundation of Western Pennsylvania, through its commitment to the principles of Christian stewardship of financial resources, empowers individuals and organizations to respond as disciples of Jesus Christ in financially supporting Christian ministries.

 

The Foundation’s role is to complement and reinforce the stewardship ministries of the churches, agencies, and programs primarily of and within the Western Pennsylvania Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church by:

 

- providing responsible and faithful investment management for              churches and agencies 

 

- enabling planned giving through which individuals can support              Christian ministries 

 

- offering education and support in financial stewardship and                    leadership.

 

The Foundation witnesses the Gospel’s stewardship message by faithfully executing its mission to be a recognized leader in enabling Christian stewardship in the Western Pennsylvania Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church with a skilled and highly motivated staff under the effective oversight of an engaged board of directors.
