Advance Projects

UMCOR manages two types of Advances: grantmaking Advances and partners’ project Advances.

Grantmaking Advances are used by UMCOR program managers to create grants for partners around the world under UMCOR’s different programmatic areas. Donors giving to grantmaking Advances allow UMCOR staff to award funds based on need. Grants awarded from these Advances are posted regularly on the UMCOR website.

Partner project Advances are used by partner organizations to support their programs. Partners submit applications to become an Advance project every four years. These projects are approved by the Advance Committee of The United Methodist Church before donors can to contribute to these projects. When donors give to project Advances, funds are forwarded directly to the partner organization on a monthly basis. However, an audit failure can cause funds for a project Advance to be put on hold until the partner corrects the issue.

UMCOR staff members provide general oversight to partner project Advances.
