Give to UMCOR

Your gift to an UMCOR project or grant makes God’s love tangible to survivors of all kinds—be it war or conflict, hurricane, famine, earthquake or flood. Even the smallest gift can make an impact.

Your gifts...
  • Allow UMCOR workers and volunteers to be among the first to arrive and the last to leave when people are in need.
  • Provide for emergency grants after disaster.
  • Relieve hunger and help communities have a sustainable source of food.
  • Cover the expenses of job training.
  • Bring emergency supplies to communities devastated by storms or floods.
  • Your gift, joined with the gifts of others, makes a significant impact in the lives of individuals and communities. And when you give through The Advance, 100% of your gift goes to serve others in the way that you choose.

    IRA Giving

    Congress renewed and made permanent a popular charitable IRA provision in the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act of 2015. This provision allows people aged 70½ or older to make direct charitable gifts from traditional and Roth IRAs to charities in a total amount up to $100,000. These gifts are free from federal income taxation. In addition, the income tax laws of most states also allow tax-free treatment for these gifts.

    Making gifts from IRA funds that would otherwise lead to increased taxes can be a wise choice for many. This is especially true for those who must take required minimum distributions each year.

    For more information, check with us, your IRA administrator, or your tax advisor.

    Other Gifts

    If you have other assets that you would like to donate to support the work of UMCOR including gifts of property, life insurance policies, mineral rights or even airline miles, please contact Tom Farley, director of development, at +1.404.832.7782.

    The Advance ensures that 100% of every gift reaches its intended mission or ministry through accountable channels you can track online.
    All Advance projects are also eligible for Supplementary Gifts through United Methodist Women's giving channels.
