GUMF Raises 1- and 2-Year Certificate Rates


Rev. Keith E. Lawder, President/CEO of the Georgia United Methodist Foundation, has announced a rate increase for our 1- and 2-year certificates.

Effective June 28, 2018, the 1-year certificate rate increased to 1.45%, while the 2-year certificate rate increased to 1.70%. The 3-year certificate rate remains at 2.10%, while the 4-year certificate rate remains at 2.50%. 

GUMF's Certificate Program, which requires a minimum investment of $5,000.00, generates a win-win for Methodists in Georgia.

Win #1: Certificate Program investments are loaned to Georgia Methodist churches and ministries in need of financing.

Win #2: Investors earn above-average interest rates when compared to similar instruments.
