Second only to John Wesley's passion for taking the gospel to all the world was his passion for all to be educated. He believed education was key in bringing the masses to Christianity. And his passion for educating the poor was personal. You see, scholarship gifts were what made it possible for Wesley himself to be educated.

Becomming an United Methodist Higher Education supporter can help change the lives of countless United Methodist students and continue the legacy of Methodism's founder John Wesley. Your generous gifts allow UMHEF to award millions of dollars each year to United Methodist (UM) students attending UM-related colleges, universities, and seminaries. Last year, the funds awarded helped over 1,000 students pursue their higher education dreams.
