The AWF Conference District Map features blue and red dots for churches and agencies in the Conference who are utilizing the services and resources of the Alabama-West Florida United Methodist Foundation and Development Fund.
If your church or agency has funds managed through the Foundation, including endowments and planned gifts, you will find yourself on the map.
We offer professional services to set up, facilitate, and manage planned giving and permanent endowment programs in the church. The goal of the Foundation is to provide financial services that encourage good stewardship of resources and to assist AWF Conference churches, agencies, and church members with the ever growing needs of ministry.
Schedule a workshop or meeting with a staff member on the importance of planned giving and how you can plan for the future of your church. To get started with our Endowment Fund Program, email [email protected].

United Methodist individuals, churches, and agencies can deposit funds into savings through the Development Fund and earn interest while helping other AWF Conference churches and agencies get needed loans at affordable rates of interest. This is a great way to invest in the future of the church without making a donation.
If your church or agency has received or is in the process of receiving a loan from the Development Fund you will find yourself on the map.
Loans are up to $1 million, have affordable interest rates, and are used for purchasing property, building expansion, and major renovation projects.
