United Methodist Development Fund

The United Methodist Development Fund ("UMDF" or "The Fund") provides first-mortgage loans to United Methodist churches, districts, city societies, district unions, mission institutions, or conference church-extension agencies for the purchase of sites and for the purchase, construction, expansion, refinancing or major improvement of churches, parsonages, or mission buildings.

The UMDF accepts investments from United Methodists, sends them an interest check, and/or reinvests interest, twice a year, then lends that money to United Methodist churches for new construction and/or renovation.

This is not an offer to sell our securities to you and we are not soliciting you to buy our securities. We will offer and sell our securities only in States where authorized. The offering is made solely by our OFFERING CIRCULAR.
