UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief)

The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is the not-for-profit humanitarian agency of The United Methodist Church. Since 1940 UMCOR’s mission — providing relief in disaster areas, aiding refugees and confronting the challenge of world hunger and poverty — has helped to heal the hurts of humanity in nearly 100 countries. UMCOR maintains a corps of trained disaster response specialists for quick reinforcement of national efforts and keeps a supply of relief materials in warehouses for dispatch when and where required. It also trains disaster response specialists in their own countries as part of a global ministry by a global church and works in partnership with other international agencies in order to pool resources and avoid duplicating efforts. UMCOR provides long-term recovery as well as immediate relief. Recognizing that disasters cause disruptions that can last for years and often create permanent changes in people’s lives, UMCOR works within a community to address the long-term effects of a disaster. UMCOR receives its funding from two main sources — designated funds (from Advance projects) and undesignated funds (like the One Great Hour of Sharing offering). One hundred percent of every donation designated for a specific project in the United Methodist second mile giving program, the Advance, is used for that project. UMCOR administrative costs come from un-designated funds, like the offering. UMCOR receives no share of apportionments.
Remember: UMCOR spends 100 percent of designated donations on the projects our donors specify.
