The PVUMC Foundation is an important part of financial stability for future ministry here at PVUMC. Our Foundation supports special projects outside of our church budget, including scholarships, capital and building needs, and missional opportunities to reach out to our community and world. Giving to God’s great causes gives us a sense of destiny and helps our church build a bridge to the future.
The PVUMC Foundation stands ready to receive your gifts — from your Estate, as a provision in your Will, or directly. As we invest these gifts, the proceeds will support the needs of the Church for generations to come.
Your Support Nurtures Life at PVUMC
The PVUMC Foundation is beyond the standard church budget, the Foundation backs special projects, scholarships, building needs, and outreach initiatives.

The PVUMC Foundation warmly welcomes donations of any kind, ensuring that our mission to inspire faith, transform lives, and foster community continues for generations. Get involved and help shape our future. It’s not just fundamental, it’s foundational.
Our Foundation has provided scholarships to seminary students, supported the training of Stephen Ministers in our church, and helped to underwrite the cost of lectures and special events that bring newcomers to our church, enrich faith and address issues for building healthy families, marriages and parenting.
Prepare to leave a lasting legacy—whether through your Estate, a provision in your Will, or direct donation. By investing these gifts, we ensure lasting support for the Church's needs, securing its future for generations to come.
Sometimes we have to remind ourselves why the God of providence has entrusted us with so much: “Your plenty will supply what they need . . . . You will be made rich . . . .so that you can be generous on every occasion.”
2 Cor. 8:14, 9:11.
