Welcome to Connectional Giving for the Detroit Conference.  Here you will find connectional giving information and resources for conference and local church leaders.


The main way we support the ministries of the church is through our apportioned funds, a method of giving that proportionally allocates the churchwide budget to conferences and local churches.

Special Sundays

The United Methodist Church designates a number of Sundays throughout the year as opportunities for recognizing and supporting particular ministries.

Designated Giving

The Designated-giving arm of The United Methodist Church is the Advance. One hundred percent of every gift to the Advance goes to the project selected by the giver.

UMC Giving Blog

The connectional giving blog of The United Methodist Church shares connectional giving stories from around the conferences and the world.
