Certificate Program

The Georgia United Methodist Foundation's Certificate Program is a wonderful investment opportunity that offers spiritual and financial rewards. As of April 30, 2021, we have over $44 million in outstanding certificates. 

When you purchase 4-, 3-, 2- and/or 1-year certificates, your investment earns higher returns than similar instruments and enables GUMF to underwrite loans to United Methodist churches and ministries in Georgia for new construction, expansion and renovation of existing facilities, purchase of building sites, and refinancing of other financial institution’s loans. GUMF's Loan Program currently has over $31.1 million in outstanding net loans.

From time to time, GUMF changes offered rates on certificates to move in line with market conditions. Rates are listed below by maturity.
