Permanently Restricted Endowment Services are at the heart of what we do.Through grants we are able to give back as we have been given to

     The Foundation's board, staff and I believe it is an honor and a privilege to be in ministry with our United Methodist sisters and brothers. We view the work of the Foundation to be more of a calling. Therefore, we view every encounter with a church, related institution or individual to be an opportunity to look at how God brings Godpeople together for the betterment of His kingdom. Our mission and vision statement makes it clear:
The United Methodist Foundation of Western North Carolina Inc. is a ministry of the church for the church whose mission is to build the church for generations to come. We fulfill this mission by investing in people, churches and related institutions and innovation. We envision a church where people live-out their faith through the wise use of their God-given resources.
