Ministry Grants

Ministry Grants

The Nebraska United Methodist Foundation awards a limited number of ministry grants to Nebraska churches and affiliated agencies of the Great Plains United Methodist Conference each year, and to those churches and affiliated agencies formerly associated with the United Methodist Church. 

Through these awards of grant dollars, we seek to enhance and expand ministries. These grants are made only for programs and activities (including operating expenses and supplies). They are not made for building repair, replacement, or expansion. The grants come from the Foundation’s “Gifts From the Heart” Endowment Fund.  Applications are reviewed by the Foundation's Stewardship Committee and voted on by the Board of Directors at the October meeting. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about the grant application process. 

The deadline to apply each year is September 30th.  Grant awards are mailed to churches by December.  To apply, please fill out the application and mail it to us or submit via email at kroberts [at] numf.org.  If you do not receive an email back acknowledging that your application was received, please call us at 402-323-8844. 

The Ministry Grant Application will be available at this link during ministry grant season.
