The purpose of the United Methodist Men's 100 Club remains "to raise scholarship funds that will be used to encourage young men and women to enter full time Christian service".
Our vision is to raise money to assist financially those wishing to enter full time Christian service. We believe that if every United Methodist man and woman donates to our endowment that the fund will grow and will nurture the minds of those desiring to be in full time Christian service.
The 100 Club was the idea of Vance Rogers, former President of Nebraska Wesleyan, who suggested that in order to start the fund we should consider getting one hundred members who will give $100 each. This idea was adopted quickly when Franklin Little made the motion to adopt this mission of the 100 Club and it was seconded by Al Ebers. The motion passed unanimously. Since the inception of the idea, over 1,641 United Methodist Men have given $164,100 toward our goal of 100 men and $10,000. We currently have 97 1000 Club donors and eleven who have pledged $100 per year for 10 years.
Dr. Alva H. Clark made a historical motion at the 13th Annual 100 Club Luncheon when he moved that United Methodist Women be considered equally with United Methodist Men in consideration of scholarship funds that become available from the endowment fund. The motion was seconded by J. Paul McIntosh and the motion passed unanimously.
We currently have over 1,641 donors to the 100 Club!
