Thank you, Covid Recovery Grant applicants!
IUMF wants to thank the pastors across Iowa who applied for an inaugural Covid Recovery Grant! We will be emailing applicants this week to let them know if they have been selected to receive a grant. We also want to express appreciation to our partners Wespath and Lilly for providing funds for this grant program. These grants are meant to improve financial literacy and well-being for clergy harshly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, especially under-served clergy and clergy of color. Learn more about Wespath's Clergy Financial Well-Being Initiative here.
Looking for a low-risk investment opportunity?
The Foundation's Building Fund Trust offers certificates to churches and individuals looking for an alternative to a volatile stock market. Our certificates are just like CDs offered by your bank, but often at better rates. Investments start at just $1,000 and can last for 1, 3 or 5 years. The best part? All investments are put into a fund that is used to offer loans to churches across Iowa! Learn more on our website and download the application for a church or individual.
From CLA: Is your church eligible for the Employee Retention Credit? A second look could mean a financial benefit for your church!
