Your gifts help heal hearts and homes! How to give to Hurricane Katrina recovery

The Mississippi United Methodist Katrina Recovery is part of the Mississippi Conference of The United Methodist Church, as well as a partner with United Methodist Committee on Relief, UMCOR.  We receive funding from UMCOR donations.
 
UMCOR is the not-for-profit humanitarian agency of The United Methodist Church. Since 1940 UMCOR's mission - providing relief in disaster areas, aiding refugees and confronting the challenge of world hunger and poverty - has helped to heal the hurts of humanity in nearly 100 countries. UMCOR maintains a corps of trained disaster response specialists for quick reinforcement of national efforts and keeps a supply of relief materials in warehouses for dispatch when and where required.

When you give to the United Methodist Committee on Relief you can be sure that your money will go where you want it to go. One hundred percent of your tax-deductible gifts go to the emergency or project that you designate. UMCOR's administrative costs come from other sources, especially the United Methodist One Great Hour of Sharing offering.
