Our Purpose is Your Mission

Rev. Dr. Elizabeth Coppedge-Henley


Hi friends, I’m Rev. Dr. Elizabeth Coppedge-Henley, president and CEO of the Georgia United Methodist Foundation, where our purpose is your mission.

I am inspired by the realization that our work is anchored by our purpose and mission, which is not replicated by any other financial institution available to Methodists in Georgia.

The purpose of the Georgia United Methodist Foundation is to partner with congregations, organizations, and individuals in direct support of the ministries and mission of the church. In this way, we are a ministry partner as we seek to live out our mission to provide faith-based financial solutions for investing, lending, training, and planned giving.

You are invited to join us as we live out our purpose in partnership with the people called Methodists across the State of Georgia.

Our question always to you is how can we best help you, your church, or your organization to achieve your mission.

Please reach out to us as we are able to help you live out the call of God in your life, and in the life of the community where you live and serve.
