The Missouri United Methodist Foundation, Inc., is recognized as a public charity exempt from federal taxation pursuant to IRC Section 501(c)(3). The IRS Group Letter Ruling granted to the United Methodist Church (October 16, 1974) is maintained by the General Council on Finance and Administration of the United Methodist Church (EIN: 36-2167731), and the Foundation is listed and qualified under the UMC Group Ruling. See IRC Sections 509(a)(1) and 170(b)(1)(A)(i). (Additional documentation is available upon request.)

The Foundation is not required to file the federal charitable tax return known as the Form 990 due to its status as a religious organization. However, the Foundation voluntarily files the Form 990 as a best practice and to maintain maximum transparency and public accountability. Copies of the Form 990 are available on request. The Form 990 is also available online at GuideStar.

The Foundation also contracts with an independent auditing firm to conduct an annual financial audit. (The 2016 audit was conducted by Williams-Keepers, LLC of Columbia, Missouri.) Copies of the most recent audit are available on request.
