What is the General Administration Fund?

This fund underwrites and finances general church activities that are administrative in nature, rather than program-related—like General Conference, the legislative branch of the church. General Council on Finance and Administration coordinates and administers the finances of the church, receives, disburses and accounts for the church's general funds, safeguards the denomination's legal interests and rights, compiles and publishes denominational statistics and maintains the church's records.

Our connectional giving (apportionments) help to maintain a system of checks and balances to ensure the denomination operates efficiently. Our contributions also enable church law and practice to be heard and decided.
