Youth Service Fund: 2012 Totals

spring2

Hello Everyone!

Spring has finally made it here to Nashville, Tennessee, and I couldn’t help but share the view. It is a beautiful day!

I wanted to share with you some of the giving totals for Youth Service Fund from 2012, because the generosity of so many young people across the country is simply amazing! Thousands of dollars are raised each year by youth for projects that are youth-designed, youth-led, and benefit youth all around the world. Keep in mind these totals show only the 30% contributed to the Global YSF.

Here are the top givers for each Jurisdiction (drum roll, please!):

  • North Cental – West Michigan Conference
  • Northeastern – Upper New York
  • South Central – Arkansas
  • Southeastern – Virginia
  • Western – California-Pacific

These 5 annual conferences gave a combined total of $25,214.56!

The California-Pacific conference came in as the top contributor with to total of $8,111.28, and the jurisdiction that raised the most, a total of $17,320.46, was South Central!

Many thanks to all of the youth who have made the Youth Service Fund possible! It is a truly unique and remarkable ministry, and you can connect with projects that have received Global YSF funding at www.youthservicefund.org. Check it out, and share your thoughts on our Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/YSF.UMC.

Have a great Easter week and happy giving!!!
