– Ministerial Education Fund: helping thousands of men and women become United Methodist pastoral leaders.
– Africa University: the only United Methodist degree-granting university in Africa, has served and graduated hundreds of men and women from 20 countries.
– Black College Fund: supporting the programs and ministries of 11 historically Black colleges and universities.
– Interdenominational Cooperation Fund:
 worldwide ecumenical efforts.
