United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) 

umcorUMCOR cooperates with other aid organizations to extend our reach, our most important partners are the people we serve. We are confident that successful solutions to emergency or chronic conditions begin with the affected population. UMCOR provides these survivors not only temporary relief but long-term education, training, and support.

UMCOR spends 100 percent of designated donations on the projects our donors specify. When UMCOR donors give their time, money, and supplies, they join UMCOR as the hands and feet of Christ.


As the United Methodist Camp and Retreat Ministries of the Pacific Northwest Annual Conference, our mission is to be sanctuaries of Christian hospitality, renewal and learning within God’s natural world. Sanctuaries that celebrate diversity, inspire love and service, and fulfill our special partnership with local churches in nurturing disciples and spiritual leaders.
