BUMC Foundation

The Brentwood United Methodist Church Foundation, a Tennessee nonprofit corporation, was established in 1992 to identify and develop opportunities for planned giving. Our purpose is to endow and support the future needs of our church’s ministry and mission by encouraging our members to remember Brentwood UMC in their wills, trusts, retirement accounts and life insurance designations.

Brentwood UMC members give generously of their time and resources to support our vision, and the BUMC Foundation provides these generous members with the opportunity to further this vision through planned giving.  The Foundation ensures the long-range financial growth and sustainability of Brentwood UMC.

The existing funds cover a broad spectrum of ministries, missions, and future needs. These funds and ministries supported include:

Many other funds may fit your charitable intent, or we may create new funds that align with your goals and the goals of our church.  If a donor wants to establish a new fund as referenced above, there is a minimum gift requirement of $10,000. If a donor wants to contribute to an existing fund, there is no minimum gift requirement.

Ways to Give

Thank you for considering a planned gift to the BUMC Foundation to help ensure the future ministry of Brentwood United Methodist Church. The BUMC Foundation can help you determine which type of gift is the best fit for your charitable giving goals and financial objectives. There are many ways you can give, including:

  • Lifetime giving
  • Making a gift to Foundation under a will
  • Naming the Foundation as a beneficiary under an insurance policy
  • Donors may contribute to the general fund or, alternatively, may name and specify a designated fund.

Donors may also pick among specified funds within the Foundation with a particular focus. Available funds include:

If a donor wants to establish a new fund, there is a minimum gift requirement of $10,000. If a donor wants to contribute to an existing fund, there is no minimum gift requirement.

The Foundation is qualified to be named as a beneficiary of almost all retirement fund accounts and life insurance policies.

BUMC Foundation Scholarship


The Brentwood United Methodist Church has a strong interest in supporting education and has established this scholarship program to achieve several desirable objectives.  This program provides deserving students with financial aid for higher education.  It is designed to encourage students to demonstrate our love, and to provide an ongoing spirit of giving to our church family.


Two types of students are eligible to apply for the awards.  They are participants in the life of Brentwood United Methodist Church who are high school seniors or college seniors who are planning a career in a “caring or helping” profession.  (Medical, education, or biblical studies for example)


Each year Brentwood United Methodist Church will award at least five $2,000 renewable* scholarships.  One of the scholarships will be awarded to a college senior who plans on graduate work.  At least four of the scholarships will be awarded to high school seniors.  The scholarships will be applied to tuition, fees, books, and supplies required for course load at an accredited, nonprofit college or university in the United States.

Winner Selection

A Selection Committee appointed by the Foundation Board will evaluate the applications and select the winners.  The selection of winners will be based on a combination of the applicants' academic records, standardized test results, extracurricular activities, and recommendations.  In evaluating applications, the committee will place special emphasis on the depth and breadth of an applicant's involvement in church and service activities, and the leadership demonstrated in those activities.

Responsibilities of Recipients

Recipient responsibilities include enrolling as full-time undergraduates in the fall of the year in which the scholarships are awarded and continuing in school for the entire academic year without interruption, barring illness, emergency, or military service. Scholarship recipients are responsible for delivering their scholarship checks to the proper office at their institution.
* Scholarships are renewable if recipient has maintained a 3.0 GPA.

Payment of Funds

Checks will be mailed to each recipient’s home address and will be made payable to the college or university only. Checks will be issued in August.
