The Wisconsin United Methodist Foundation exists to help United Methodist churches, ministries, boards and agencies with all things financial regarding their ministries. We hope to support your church or group in expanding your ministry. Since the 1980’s we have been able to offer grants to help projects and creative ministries get off the ground in the first years. If you have a creative and innovative program, project or activity which is new to your group, this may be for you. Please read what MAY be and will NOT be funded. These grants are to be considered seed money rather than continuing support. Grants typically phase out after three years. There is a round of grants offered in the Fall and sometimes again in the Spring.
