Ever notice how "the perfect gift" often involves not only what the recipient needs, but also what the giver really likes too?

Through United Methodist Global Ministries and the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), we have many opportunities to support projects that advance vital ministries around the world, such as relief aid for disaster victims, scholarships for Native American seminarians, scholarships and loans for students attending United Methodist schools, and so much more!

Look through the links below to find projects and missionaries that most interest you. And remember, 100% of your gift reaches the project / missionary of your choice.

If you don't have a specific interest, you can instead designate your gift to the Overall work of Global Ministries or the Overall work of UMCOR.
