BLOOMINGTON, MINN.  Vanco and the New England Conference of the United Methodist Church (NEUMC) have formed a dynamic new partnership that will provide access to industry-leading, storytelling-based giving tools to United Methodist churches throughout the region.

These tools have been developed through Vanco’s 25-plus years serving tens of thousands of churches and organizations across the country, building a giving experience that inspires generosity while connecting members directly to the churches and causes they support. Through this partnership, those tools and resources are now more accessible than ever for NEUMC member churches.   

“This is an amazing opportunity for us to partner with an organization like the New England Conference of the United Methodist Church, which shares our strong commitment to empowering churches as they serve their congregations and communities,” said Dan Gretz, Vanco Vice President of Strategic Partnerships. “Our entire organization is excited to team up with churches throughout New England to tell their stories and inspire much-needed support for the impactful work they do for those they serve.”

Based in Methuen, Mass., the NEUMC includes churches in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont and Connecticut. This includes 537 churches with more than 61,000 members. The NEUMC’s work includes disaster response and coordination, ministry to Native American peoples, ensuring those with disabilities are included and celebrated within the church, supporting access to immigrant justice, and more.

‌”We love working with a diverse group of churches and congregations who are passionate about fulfilling our shared calling to live out the love of God in our communities and our world,” NEUMC Treasurer and Director of Administrative Services Clare Chapman said. “That makes Vanco a fantastic partner for us because they’re committed to the work of serving churches and faith communities by empowering them to generate the support they need to accomplish that mission.”

Through this new partnership, Vanco will work with interested NEUMC churches and help them offer a giving experience tailored to their needs to help them effectively fulfill their calling within the communities they serve.
