YOUTH SERVICE FUNDYSF TRULY IS YOUTH IN MINISTRY
WHO WE ARE
The Youth Service Fund is a unique ministry because it is run completely by, with and for youth. Youth contribute the money, they decide what projects receive the money, and the projects supported are youth-designed, youth-led, and youth benefited. Youth from everywhere may apply for funding.
WHAT WE DO
The United Methodist Youth Service Fund is more than just a drive for funds. It is a call for United Methodist Youth to become active lay members. It is one way in which youth can respond to the mission of our church and more importantly to the call of our Lord to care for His sheep. Why do we give? We give because Jesus Christ gave Himself fully, for all.
Money is raised at our youth events by selling merchandise, food, or donated items. 70% of the money raised is kept in the state while 30% is forwarded to the national portion of the Youth Service Fund. With that 30% Young Peoples Ministries funds youth-designed & youth-led projects around the world. They recently received money for the Youth Service Fund from the Philippines and we encourage contributions from others around the world.
- In State Funding 70%
- Out Of State Funding 30%
Because of your support, youth around the state and the world will receive grant funding for ministries that are youth-designed, youth-led, and for the benefit of youth. We thank you for being a part of this amazing ministry.
