Butler Memorial United Methodist Church is a proud, religious organization founded in 1912 through the efforts of a small group of civic-minded people with a missionary zeal to establish a Methodist church in the Williamsbridge section of the Bronx.

Our faith in God has helped us to open doors to opportunity by creating educational scholarships to help our Church members realize their potential. In June 1981, the church instituted a scholarship program with annual scholarships given to our deserving young people. Later on, members and friends of Butler established additional scholarships in honor or in memory of loved ones.

CREATING A BUTLER MEMORIAL UNITED METHODIST CHURCH SCHOLARSHIP IN HONOR OR MEMORY OF A LOVED ONE

The rising cost of higher education is one of the biggest life-changing challenges facing us today. Members and friends of Butler Memorial United Methodist Church may create scholarships to be given in honor or in memory of loved ones or self. Scholarships can start at a minimum of $500 a year. Members and friends will decide the amount and duration of their scholarship. Donations should be made to Butler Memorial United Methodist Church covering the full amount of their scholarship by April 30 of the year it will be awarded.

Butler Memorial United Methodist Church has designated the Butler Memorial United Methodist Church Scholarship Ministry as the Committee for screening, reviewing, evaluating, and awarding scholarships.

FUNDS ADMINISTRATION

The Butler Memorial United Methodist Church Finance Committee will administer scholarship funds donated to the Church and will maintain those funds. Donations for Butler Memorial United Methodist Church Scholarships are tax-deductible.
