Certificate Investments Elevate the Mission of the Church

The Georgia United Methodist Foundation Certificate Program is an impactful investment opportunity that offers spiritual and financial rewards. One hundred percent of your investment elevates the mission and ministry of churches and nonprofits through loans to refinance, build, expand, or renovate facilities.

In addition, we offer higher returns than similar instruments, meaning you save more while receiving peace of mind knowing your investment is helping churches and nonprofits be good stewards of the funds entrusted to them by God.
