To download a brochure with more information and FAQs, click here. The Centennial United Methodist Foundation general endowment fund is intended to extend the Christian outreach of Centennial United Methodist Church by supporting projects promoted by members of the congregation.
Criteria for Selection:
A project must, in an identifiable way, operate for the religious, charitable, benevolent and educational purposes of Centennial United Methodist Church.
Projects are required to have identifiable support from all sources sufficient to assure timely and full completion of the proposed project.
Priority will be given to projects that benefit a majority of the congregation and the community at large, projects and activities designed to reduce the causes of societal and religious ills (not symptoms), and projects that enhance the church facilities to attract, serve and/or positively influence extension of Christian outreach.
Projects or activities which should reasonably be covered by normal operating budgets or capital expenditures, or those that would normally be covered by local, conference, national or international United Methodist Church activity will not be supported by the Centennial United Methodist Foundation.
Projects without long term relevance and benefit or those that aid narrow or special causes will only be considered for funding if they contain significant offsetting attributes.
Projects and activities must be acceptable to the Church Council or the Board of Trustees of the Centennial United Methodist Church.
