NEWS: CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: THE UNITED METHODIST CHILDREN’S FUND FOR CHRISTIAN MISSION
2015 Recipient The United Methodist Children’s Fund for Christian Mission - Henry Fork Service Center, Rocky Mount, Virginia
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.

Apply Today!

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

Please see "The United Methodist Children’s Fund for Christian Mission" on our website to download the application. The application and accompanying information sheet are available in English, French, Korean, Portuguese, and Spanish.
