UMDF exists to promote the mission of The United Methodist Church.
We are organized and operated exclusively for religious purposes to help The United Methodist Church become more clearly focused on mission through the integration of financial and leadership resources.
UMDF is a nonprofit corporation resulting from the 1969 merger of the Methodist Investment Fund and the Evangelical United Brethren Investment Fund. When the two funds were united financially on December 31, 1969, they had a combined asset value of $28,015,228.
Over the course of our 50 year history, we have made over 2,000 loans totaling more than $500 million, encouraging churches across the United States to pursue their God-sized dreams.

Servanthood - Starting with the question, “What can UMDF do for you?”
