Giving

Your gift to the Association of United Methodist Camp and Retreat Ministries strengthens the effectiveness and the sustainability of camp and retreat ministries across the country. 

You can designate your support in one of three ways:

The UMCRM Annual Fund offers operational support for initiatives of the Association. Your gift to the annual fund assists the Association’s development of new resources so that the leaders of United Methodist centers and ministries can access best practices, resources, and adaptive change needed to focus and fulfill our Christian mission in ever-changing contexts. The Annual Fund supports initiatives to strengthen the long-term effectiveness, vitality, and strategic direction of UM Camp and Retreat Ministries.

The Legacy of Leadership Fund is established by the United Methodist Camp and Retreat Ministries Association (UMCRM) and designated to provide essential scholarship funding for staff and volunteers for UMCRM-sponsored educational events. Legacy of Leadership supports those leaders who could not otherwise afford to participate in training and opens opportunities for participation by persons from communities currently underserved.

The UMCRM Endowment Fund provides donors with a way of giving ongoing support to the Association. Endowment gifts are commonly planned gifts of stock or estate gifts designated in the donor’s will. One-time and recurring gifts are also valued. Every gift builds the endowment, securing funding for the future of Association ministries.

Please consider setting up a recurring monthly gift or make a one-time gift online:
