Beulah Grants for Ministries with Seniors

Since 1988 when the assets of the Beulah Home property were transferred to the United Methodist Women of the California-Nevada Annual Conference, it was agreed that the income from the permanent fund would be used to award grants to projects or programs that will serve the needs and uphold the dignity of elderly persons.

This year nearly $300,000 in Beulah funds were awarded to 25 organizations for their ministry with seniors. The United Methodist Churches across our conference are engaged in ministries with seniors, preparing meals, providing transportation, providing wellness checks, upgrading the church’s sound system and much, much more.

During this pandemic, the seniors in our community and churches are facing increased challenges.

If your church or an organization connected to your church or local unit of United Methodist Women is engaged in senior ministry and is in need of funds, check into applying for a Beulah grant.

You can get more information about Beulah grants and the application by going to http://www.canvunitedmethodistwomen.org/beulah-grants.html

Or you can contact the chair of the Beulah grant committee, Becky Officer by email at jbofficer@gmail.com Please note: Because of the pandemic, the deadline for submission of grant applications has been extended to September 1st.


Connie Hunter serves as the UMW Mission Coordinator for Social Action for the California-Nevada Conference.
