Leaving a Lasting Legacy

Certificates of Participation

The Certificate of Participation provides an investment alternative for those who are seeking the security of a fixed income type vehicle at competitive rates. It is an excellent option for investors who like to invest in certificate of deposits or money market funds. These certificates have been registered only with the State of Kansas Securities Commissioner and the Nebraska Department of Banking and Finance. The Certificate of Participations are not offered in any other state or jurisdiction.

The Certificate of Participation is the funding source of the Foundation's Church Development Loan Fund providing loans to the Great Plains Conference United Methodist Churches and related institutions throughout the state of Kansas and Nebraska for the purchase of real estate, building new church starts, renovating existing buildings, large maintenance projects, operating needs and re-financing existing indebtedness. The Certificate of Participation program is available to the Great Plains Conference Kansas and Nebraska United Methodist Churches, individuals and related institutions.
