RI Ministerial Assistance Fund

There exists under the umbrella of the Rhode Island Conference, UCC, the Rhode Island Ministerial Assistance Fund.  This modest endowment generates funds which may be used to assist with emergency financial needs of authorized ministers holding standing in the RI Conference and their surviving dependents.

Such needs shall include, but is not limited to, medical needs – including treatment for emotional and mental distress, medical insurance premiums, housing needs, transportation needs, and funeral expenses.

Even though it is a modest fund, we wish all in the conference to know of its existence.  The lay and clergy Trustees who administer this fund are glad to share that this Fund exists to assist those in need.

Requests for assistance for ministers and their families should be addressed to the Interim Conference Minister, Rev Marilyn Kendrix at 401-724-7700 or  All requests are held in strict confidence.

Rev Charles Simonson, President of Trustees of the Fund
