Would you like to make a financial donation to the earthquake relief effort in Nepal?  You can do so through The United Methodist Church’s Committee on Relief.  Donations can be made in several ways: 

·         Directly on UMCOR’s website at this link (https://secure3.convio.net/gbgm/site/SPageNavigator/umcor_donate.html?type=1002&project=982450)

·         Online through My Pender Page on Pender’s website at this link (https://secure.accessacs.com/access/nonmemberlogin.aspx?sn=108500).  Select the Misc. Fund and write “Nepal # 982450” in the optional description box

·         Write a check to Pender – write “Nepal # 982450” on the memo line – and put it in the offering plate. 

 

We will make sure UMCOR receives all donations made through Pender.

 

UMCOR is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to providing humanitarian relief and disaster response.  When you make a financial donation to UMCOR, you can be assured that every dollar will go to the program you specify. UMCOR can guarantee this because all of their overhead and administrative costs are covered by other designated gifts.
