About us


Since 1966, we've provided services to strengthen United Methodist ministries in the northwest. You can think of us as your local source for resources about stewardship, planned giving, and endowments. We also make loans and manage investments for churches and agencies. And there's so much more. For example, did you know that your church can accept gifts of stock without the hassle and expense of maintaining a brokerage account? We'll do the work for you, free of charge. It's part of our ministry.

The Foundation is an extension ministry of the United Methodist Church in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. We are an independent 501(c)(3) corporation that works closely with the churches, boards and agencies of the Episcopal Area. We are not funded by apportionment dollars but; instead, support ourselves through the fees associated with our investment management services. Our board is comprised of United Methodist lay and clergy persons, conference treasurers and the Bishop. All this is to say that, at the end of the day, we're rooting for your church and we treasure the connection that brings us together.
