The Foundation of the Methodist Home

The Foundation of the Methodist Home of the South Georgia Conference, Inc. is closely aligned with the Methodist Home of the South Georgia Conference, Inc. While the Foundation is a separate entity, it was created solely to benefit and carry out the purpose of the Methodist Children’s Home.

The Foundation offers capital and operating assistance enabling the Home to serve neglected and abused children. With the Foundation’s support, the Methodist Home is able to provide residential care, therapeutic foster care, in-home intervention, wraparound services, day care, independent living, transitional living, higher education support, comprehensive child and family assessments, home evaluations, and on-campus education. In addition to supplying needed capital and operating support, the Foundation provides debt service for the costs associated with the construction of the Rumford Center, a multi-purpose building used for programming at the Home.

The Foundation is also responsible for the financial oversight of all of the investments that have been made on behalf of the Home. The Foundation’s investment committee works closely with money managers ensuring that investment flexibility is maintained and the funding needs of the Home are met.

The Foundation is exempt from federal income tax under Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. All donations that we receive are used to benefit The Methodist Home.

The Foundation’s offices are located on the 4th floor of The Rumford Center on the Macon campus of The Methodist Home (304 Pierce Avenue, Macon, GA 31204).

The Foundation’s mailing address is:
P.O. Box 2600
