Testimonials

“Unlike traditional banks and other investment institutions, MAUMF does its work through people who are accessible and know money but also know our churches and the meaning of ‘love thy neighbor.’”

Lawrence Pelham Simpson UMC Wilmington, DE February 22, 2017

“Trinity UMC had not established a formal approach for extraordinary or planned gifts. With the help of MAUMF, we are now fully engaged... They met with us, provided guidance, furnished material and are always available for continued dialogue. Trinity’s Endowment Committee is now up and running with great expectations for fulfilling our mission. This is in large measure due to the partnership we have forged with the MAUMF.”

Warren Rice Endowment Committee Chair, Trinity UMC, Prince Frederick, MD February 22, 2017

“Our investment committee decided to commit the large share of our endowments with MAUMF over a year ago. It was a decision thoroughly analyzed, discussed, and prayed upon. We can gladly say this decision was the proper one. We receive timely monthly reports, and all inquiries are met with immediate attention. MAUMF is flexible, informative and is willing to go the extra mile for us. Our experience at Grace is only positive and we certainly recommend the them to any other church body that desire to put God’s resources to work for God’s glory.”
