Fund 515, General Administration

Through the General Administration Fund, United Methodists implement a trustworthy system of administrative oversight and fiscal accountability; underwrite the legislative work of General Conference; fund the work of the Judicial Council to adjudicate questions of Church law; maintain United Methodism's official documents and historical artifacts; and designate historical shrines, landmarks and sites.

The General Administration Fund finances those general church activities that are specifically administrative in nature. Therefore, for the 2017 – 2020 quadrennium, this general fund will provide the resources for the work of the General Council on Finance and Administration (47%), General Conference (including travel and reimbursement for all delegates and meeting operations) (30%), Standing Committee on Central Conference Matters (1%), General Commission on Archives & History (12%), Judicial Council (2%), Pension and Salary aid for specific organizations, namely, Oklahoma Indian Missionary Conference and Rio Grande Conference (7%), and a contingency reserve (1%).
