Services for Individuals | Iowa United Methodist Foundation

Helping others and being a partner in stewardship is a big deal to the Foundation. We offer a number of services to individuals in order to accomplish this concept of giving back, whether that be giving to a church, a scholarship fund, or some other organization that you want to see continue on into the future.
