NUMF Announces Fall Grant Opportunities for Churches

NUMF Announces Fall Grant Opportunities for Churches

July 1, 2024

The NUMF ministry grants are now available to all Nebraska United Methodist churches and affiliated agencies of the Great Plains United Methodist Conference. These grants are available to enhance and expand church ministries. The ultimate goal of these awards is to provide assistance, both for new ministries and thriving ministries wishing to grow. These grants are made for programs and activities, and include operating expenses and supplies necessary for those programs or activities. They are not made for building repair, replacement, or expansion.

The Foundation now offers New Start/New Faith Community grants twice a year. The fall grant opportunity is available to Nebraska United Methodist churches and affiliated Nebraska agencies of the Great Plains United Methodist Conference to enhance and support new church development. Priority will be given to the following:

* A New Start that is recognized by Congregational Excellence as a New Start/New Faith Community.

* A New Start deemed to be of an outreach and beneficial nature to the larger community.

* A New Start that is in collaboration with other United Methodist entities.

* A New Start that has identified other sources of revenue.

* A New Start that is an integral part of a long-range plan for growth and outreach.

The deadline for these grants is September 30, 2024. For more information including grant guidelines and applications, click on this link: https://www.numf.org/scholarships-grants
