How Is Metro Ministries Funded?

A very generous bequest was received from the Kresge family in 1968. This endowment has been used to provide support for new church starts, assist churches in adapting their programs to their altered environments and to promote local mission work within the United Methodist Church districts. Today, income generated from this endowment is used to provide support for the administration of the organization, with the principal to remain in perpetuity.

Central District Ministry support from local church district tithe is budgeted annually through the Central District budget. The anticipated 1.5% tithe allows for operational support for Metro Ministries, the outreach arm of the district.

100% of undesignated donations from individuals, churches and organizations are used toward Metro's Ministry Grants program. 

In 2018, a new designated endowment fund was launched as additional long-term support for the mission of Metro Ministries, Inc. The goal is to grow this fund to over $100,000 by the year 2023, the 100th anniversary of Metro Minsitries.
