Apply by Sept. 1 for UMC Children's Fund award

The United Methodist Children’s Fund for Christian Mission helps children learn about, and make contributions to, a select group of mission projects. Each year, four projects are identified for their value in helping children understand what it means to “be in mission.” Educational materials on these projects are developed for use in local United Methodist churches to teach children about the projects and raise funds for the identified projects.

We are currently accepting applications for the 2016 award. There will be four projects selected – two projects from outside of the U.S. and two from within. In the past, the fund raised $8,000-$15,000 per project. The project must be an existing program for children younger than 12.
