Foundation News: March 2023
Don't miss out on two NEW offers:
Covid Recovery Grants to help pastors are here!
The Foundation is offering a limited number of $500 grants to clergy who were financially affected by the pandemic, focusing on clergy of color and clergy working in under-served areas. Applications will be accepted April 1 - June 10, and recipients will be notified in July. Learn more and apply here.
Free estate planning webinar with an industry expert!
Wondering what new tax laws mean for your family and your will? This webinar is for you! Johni Hays is a national presence in the field of estate planning. Let her answer your questions and teach you to take charge of your estate plan! Register here for the April 20th training.
Looking for a low-risk investment opportunity? The Foundation's Building Fund Trust offers certificates to churches and individuals looking for a solution to recent stock market volatility. These certificates are similar to CDs offered by your bank. They can be purchased in any amount starting at $1,000 and are offered for 1, 3 or 5 years. The best part? All investments are put into a fund that is used to make loans for churches across Iowa. Learn more on our website and download the application for a church or individual.
Thank you scholarship applicants!
IUMF's staff and board of directors are excited to read this year's scholarship applications! All applicants will be notified via email before the end of May about their application status. Best of luck to everyone who applied!

This program would not be possible without our amazing donors! The Foundation can help you set up your own scholarship fund or you can donate to an existing scholarship on our GIVE page.
