The Advance is an official program of The United Methodist Church for voluntary, designated, second-mile giving. Through The Advance, United Methodists may choose to support mission programs or mission personnel with their financial gifts. Each Advance project has been vetted and approved by Global Ministries and Advance staff.
The Advance is an accountable, designated giving arm of The United Methodist Church that ensures 100% of each gift is used for its intended mission or ministry. The work of The Advance fulfills both physical and spiritual needs through a variety of partnerships worldwide to reach mutual goals that make a life-changing and long-lasting impact.
Since its founding in 1948, The Advance has helped channel over three million gifts totaling over one billion dollars to thousands of projects and ministries around the world. The Advance has been a lifeline for tens of thousands of mission endeavors. Learn more at: http://www.umcmission.org/Give-to-Mission/The-Advance

Giving Changes the World
With limited resources, UMKR has
had a remarkable impact in the global United Methodist Church! Historic divestment and boycott actions could not have happened without the vital support of those who believe in the cause of Palestinian rights. Please give whatever you can today, so that our work can continue. And rest assured that every donation, large or small,
helps the cause!

and resources for each one.
