Who We Are

The Nebraska United Methodist Foundation supports the ministries of the local church and the Great Plains United Methodist Conference through the development of gifts and the stewardship of resources entrusted to the Foundation in support of God’s work. From church grant opportunities to seminarian scholarships to free estate planning seminars, we work to help the United Methodist people of Nebraska on many different levels. We enjoy working with churches in providing investment services for money they would like to tuck away until a rainy day or the dreaded emergency. We are here to help you as a church, and as an individual, better plan for your future. As a nonprofit entity ourselves, we are not interested in making a profit off of these services, but rather our focus is to help the Nebraska United Methodist churches and people grow and be prosperous. There is no cost to churches and other Conference ministries for our services.

The Foundation staff assists churches and agencies through:

  • The creation and development of endowment funds;
  • Presentations of Foundation investment services;
  • Gift & estate planning seminars for church groups;
  • Fund development workshops;
  • Pre-capital campaign workshops;
  • Planned gift visits with individuals; and
  • Stewardship sermons.
