The Mid-Atlantic United Methodist Foundation (MAUMF) is a tax-exempt nonprofit formed to serve three conferences of the United Methodist Church: Eastern Pennsylvania, Peninsula-Delaware, and the Baltimore-Washington Conferences.
Together, these conferences include 300,000 United Methodists and 1,400 churches.
Since the merging of foundations in 2010, MAUMF has steadily grown assets under management. Today, MAUMF is approaching one hundred twenty million in assets invested on behalf of the churches within the conferences we serve.
A portion of MAUMF’s fees pays its investment managers, and the rest is re-invested in our mission of helping churches thrive. As assets under management grow, MAUMF has offered more classes, more speakers who visit churches to energize stewardship, and more free consulting and/or coaching for our conference churches.
MAUMF partners with Fulton Financial Advisors to administer a family of funds developed exclusively for MAUMF. This allows our financial managers to diversify across a broad spectrum of asset classes and categories. Indexed funds are also available.
Money is a vital ministry tool. MAUMF helps churches develop a culture of generous giving. We then help make the most of those assets to help each church advance its ministries – within congregations, across communities, and around the world.
Daily business operations of the Foundation are administered by the Executive Director of the Foundation, Jack Brooks.
Board of Directors
Our Governing Board of Directors is comprised of both Clergy and Laity members of the United Methodist Church with representatives from the Eastern Pennsylvania, Peninsula-Delaware, and Baltimore-Washington Annual Conferences.
2022 included some challenges as we emerged from the pandemic, but overall it was a great year for the Foundation. We added a record number of new accounts and helped many churches develop alternative funding sources. Check out the rest of our accomplishments.
The Foundation has selected Fulton Financial Advisors, a $5.1 billion firm offering a broad array of financial products and trust and retirement services, for its recordkeeping and financial services.
