UM Federal Credit Union Makes Financial Sense for UM Churches

February 10, 2011

The United Methodist Federal Credit Union (UMFCU) understands the special needs your church or affiliated organization has when it comes to finances and banking. UMFCU provides churches with a professionally managed, federally insured financial institution that is member-owned and operated by United Methodists. 

The UMFCU offers a number of products specifically designed to meet the savings needs of United Methodist organizations, including offering a higher rate Money Market and Certificates of Deposit accounts.
  • Church Savings, Money Market, and Certificates of Deposit
  • Church Checking Accounts
  • Church VISA® Cards
  • Church HELOCs
  • And more!
The church checking account offers liquidity, accessibility, and all the usual convenient services for a main checking account – with no analysis fees or other fees usually associated with other banks. And best of all, your church checking account will earn a dividend every month on average daily balances of $500 or more.
And it's convenient! Deposits can be made at any Wells Fargo location, at no charge; withdrawals can be made at most credit union offices (including other credit unions); churches can even charge Apportionment payments through a UMFCU credit card. 
Are you looking for a new fundraising idea? UMFCU will do a presentation at your church. With each new account opened, the church will earn a $20 referral fee.
UMFCU is just a phone call away! For more information or to schedule a presentation, contact Dina Stenwick at or 916.374.1583.
