UMCOR, with its separate funding for administration and overhead, from Methodist churches through their payments of "apportionments", means 100 cents of any dollar given for a specific "advance" , such as a specific hurricane or disaster is going to be spent on that disaster. Period. UMCOR is truly an unsung hero among disaster relief organizations and it makes me proud to be affiliated with it.

I agree with a few of the other reviewers about how UMCOR operates. The United Methodist Church has an offering called "One Great Hour of Sharing". Money donated through this special offering pays UMCOR's operating expenses. 100% of the money donated to UMCOR for a specific project goes directly to that project. When unrestricted money is donated to UMCOR, it is used to supplement programs UMCOR supports worldwide. UMCOR has people willing and waiting to help in all areas, which makes the organization one of the first responders in emergencies.

I like that my gift goes directly to the cause or disaster I designate and that 100% of my donation goes directly to helping people impacted. UMCOR commits to be first on the groud and last to leave. They will stay for years (such as in the case of Katrina) until people's live and homes are rebuilt.

UMCOR has contacts around the world and is able to get relief to those in crisis or chronic need. 100% of designated donations go to the people or projects. UMCOR works directly with the people in need so that contributions are effective with long-lasting impact. It is our first way to make a difference after a world disaster or crisis.

Charity Navigator's evaluation is incorrect. 100% of your donation goes to the intended recipients. UMCOR's operating expenses are paid for by the United Methodist Church, not from donations to UMCOR for specified causes. In addition, UMCOR is not required to file Form 990 because it is a church.

UMCOR is a great organization to donate to. Your money does not go to pay for administrative costs, 100% of your donation goes to the cause. UMCOR also helps with relief AND development. This group stays for years (many) helping to get the community back on its feet. Charity Navigator and American Institute of Philanthropy have given UMCOR highest scores.
