Renfro Trust Fund


The Renfro Trust Fund awards annual "bricks-and-mortar" grants to small rural United Methodist congregations in the Southeastern Jurisdiction.

Renfro Trust Funds are available for award with a deadline for application determined by the Annual Conference of the church which is submitting the grant application. Please check with your Annual Conference (see contact information below) to determine your respective deadline for application (typically in mid- to late summer). Please note: Applications will only be accepted when submitted through the Conference Secretary for Global Ministries of the Conference in which you are located.
For the Renfro Trust Guidelines, click here. The Renfro Trust Fund Application has recently been updated; an online fillable version of the Application is available here, and a printable version for filing is available here. Guidelines must be followed completely for applications to be considered.
