The Kentucky United Methodist Foundation.  As part of our stewardship ministry, the Foundation will gladly come to your church to provide assistance, such as:

  • Establishing a permanent endowment committee
  • Starting (or revitalizing) a planned giving program to encourage gifts to your endowment
  • Seminars on estate planning and charitable giving
  • Investment options for churches and agencies

The purpose of the Kentucky Young Clergy Initiative Youth Ministry Grant is to support youth (that’s you!) in a response to a ministry need in your local church and community. It is our hope that this opportunity will grow your faith and help you further discern God’s call upon your life. Thank you for using your gifts and passion to love God and serve others!


Please note there may be other grant opportunities administered by other ministry teams that better fit your needs. For more information on these grants, please contact the ministry departments.
