Contributions made through Bethany UMC will go to the following organizations so our funds will help at the national, state, and local levels:

  • United Methodist Committee On Relief (UMCOR) - Relief for both Harvey & Irma
  • RioTexas (our UMC Conference) Disaster Recovery
  • Austin Disaster Relief Network (ADRN) 

Recovery is going to be VERY long and extensive.  Between the organizations above, all of the areas affected by Harvey will be included in our generosity. The Texas Coastal Bend area, Houston/Galveston areas, and our Colorado River communities to the south (Bastrop, Smithville, LaGrange, etc.) will all benefit from our giving, and on down the road, our physical assistance.

United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR)

UMCOR is consistently among the first teams on the ground providing aide when disasters occur around the world. 100% of designated relief donations go directly to the specific relief effort. Administrative costs are covered through annual fundraising.

One Great Hour of Sharing is an annual special offering for UMCOR taken in United Methodist Churches to help underwrite the administrative costs of UMCOR.  This enables 100% of donations made to disaster relief projects to go directly toward the designated relief effort.
