Mission Statement

In carrying out our ministry, members of the Board and staff of the United Methodist Foundation of Western Pennsylvania are guided by our Mission Statement:

The United Methodist Foundation of Western Pennsylvania, through its commitment to the principles of Christian stewardship of financial resources, empowers individuals and organizations to respond as disciples of Jesus Christ in financially supporting Christian ministries.

The Foundation’s role is to complement and reinforce the stewardship ministries of the churches, agencies, and programs primarily of and within the Western Pennsylvania Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church by:

  • providing responsible and faithful investment management for churches and agencies;
  • enabling planned giving through which individuals can support Christian ministries; and
  • offering education and support in financial stewardship and leadership.
