What is the Africa University Fund?
The Africa University Fund is one of seven apportioned funds of The United Methodist Church. Located in Old Mutare, Zimbabwe, Africa University is the first fully accredited United Methodist-related education institution on the African continent. Established by General Conference action, the university offers bachelor and master’s degree programs in six faculties of learning: agriculture, education, health sciences, humanities, management and theology. The Institute of Peace, Leadership and Governance offers postgraduate diplomas and master’s programs. Gifts to the Africa University Fund support the general operating expenses of Africa University, including faculty and staff salaries and vital infrastructure.  

Can I give to the Africa University Fund online?
You cannot give online to the Africa University Fund. We hope to offer online giving to the apportioned funds in the future. Please encourage your leaders and congregations to support the Africa University Fund apportionment at 100%.
