The Nebraska United Methodist Foundation awards a limited number of small grants to Nebraska churches and affiliated agencies of the Great Plains United Methodist Conference.  Through these awards of grant dollars, we seek to enhance and expand their ministries. The ultimate goal of these awards is to provide assistance whether it be a one-time grant or a grant that will help a ministry become self-sustaining.

These grants are made only for programs and activities — including operating expenses and supplies —necessary for those programs or activities. They are not made for building repair, replacement, or expansion.

The grants awarded for smaller ministries come from the Foundation’s “Gifts From the Heart” Endowment Fund.  

Please review the Ministry Grant Application Packet carefully before applying for a grant.  If you qualify, complete the application and submit it to the Foundation prior to the established deadline of September 30.

Foundation grant awards are reviewed by the Nebraska United Methodist Foundation Stewardship Committee.  The Committee then takes the recommendation of that grant request to the full Board to be voted on by the Board of Directors at the October board meeting

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about Foundation grants or the grant application process.
