GUMF Raises Certificate Rates


Rev. Keith E. Lawder, President/CEO of the Georgia United Methodist Foundation, has announced a rate increase for our 1-, 2-, 3-, and 4-year certificates.

Effective October 30, 2018, the 1-year certificate rate increased from 1.45% to 1.65%; the 2-year certificate rate increased from 1.70% to 1.90%; the 3-year certificate rate increased from 2.10% to 2.35%; and the 4-year certificate increased from 2.50% to 2.85%. 

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.
