Why a fall campaign?

This blog post is meant to give you a glimpse behind the fundraising curtain at UGM.


As a faith-based, non-profit organization that does not accept government funding, UGM’s operating expenses come almost entirely from individual donations. Even the income from our social enterprises, UGM Motors and UGM Thrift Stores, is dependent upon donations of vehicles, furniture, clothing and household goods.

In other words, we do not exist without you. A generous community has faithfully partnered with us for 68 years to reach the poor with the love and power of the gospel. Maintaining that relationship is a high priority, and that’s why we have a “fall campaign.”
