2014 Annual Report


A Message from our Chairman and President:

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the St. Marys United Methodist Church Foundation, we are privileged to present the 2014 Annual Report. The purpose of this report is to provide a brief summary of our year-end financial status and a summary of our grant making activities during 2014.

During the past year, the Foundation provided approximately $1.6 million in grants to 29 “tax-exempt” organizations working locally and internationally.  Approximately 75 percent of the grant funds were used to support organizations working in Southeast Georgia and agencies of the South Georgia Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. The remaining 25 percent of grant funds were used in continued support of the international initiative Together. The 5-year commitment (2011-2015) to this initiative brings together four Christian agencies (SMUMCF, Church World Service, ECHO and MAP) to carry out a joint development program in Northern Uganda. The goal of the program is to build community resilience in the region. 

We believe these activities reflect well upon our role as a supporting organization to the St. Marys United Methodist Church and our mission to be a lasting, effective and compassionate charitable resource. We remain prayerful that these efforts favorably reflect God’s vision for our Church and our Foundation.
