Who We Are 


Since 1970, the United Methodist Foundation of Western Pennsylvania has served the United Methodist churches, agencies, clergy, and individuals of the western Pennsylvania Conference by providing reliable funds management services for charitable endowments and other long-term funds benefitting United Methodist causes, both present and future.


The Foundation is, and always has been, governed by a volunteer Board of Directors composed of clergy and business leaders who bring with them a breadth of knowledge and skills in a variety of professional fields. The Board of Directors is supported by an experienced and motivated Executive Director and staff, dedicated to the principles of Christian stewardship and socially responsible funds management. 


As a supporting organization of the Western Pennsylvania Annual Conference, we exist solely to serve the churches and agencies of western Pennsylvania  and to help them to fulfill their mission and ministry.
