United Methodist Global Aids Fund
DescriptionThe Fund was established at the 2004 General Conference to raise $8 million by 2008. The fund represents the commitment of every United Methodist to put a stop to HIV/AIDS in the world. The $8 million represents a $1 commitment for every United Methodist in the United States. The Fund supports education, prevention, care, and treatment programs for people living with HIV/AIDS. The Fund will assist local congregations and conferences in identifying and creating global partnerships for mutual HIV/AIDS ministry and provide support for projects sponsored by local congregations or organizations related to the UMC, autonomous Methodist churches, and churches of other denominations. The Fund will also advocate for increased governmental and non-governmental funding, explore partnerships with government funding initiatives as well as the Global Fund for AIDS, TB, and malaria, and develop appropriate promotional materials and funding guidelines. Funds are earmarked for both existing and new projects around the globe.
