Ann Buck named the Director of Account Services for the United Methodist Foundation of Michigan.
The United Methodist Foundation of Michigan is pleased to announce that Ann Buck has joined the staff as Director of Account Services. Having served for a number of years in the area of administrative services with the West Michigan Treasurer’s Office, Ann is well known throughout
much of the Michigan Area. Ann will transition full time to the Foundation in late fall, but began splitting her time between the Treasurer’s Office and the Foundation on July 1, 2016.
David Bell, President and Executive Director, commented “Ann brings a wealth of knowledge to our accounting services area. She is highly respected for her collegial style, her exceptional customer service skills, and, most importantly, her passion for the Church and its ministry.”
The United Methodist Foundation of Michigan has been growing steadily both in terms of assets under management and its scope of ministry. In a proactive move to continue its standards of excellence, the Foundation is expanding its full-time staff. Ann will be responsible for many bookkeeping functions of the Michigan Area Loan Fund, local church investment statements, other trust and annuity account services, and direct customer service.
Ann joins other staff members, Wayne Barrett, Senior Executive; Marian Coles, Senior Director of Operations; Jeff Regan, Senior Director of Stewardship; and Kay Yoder, Director of MALF Accounting. While Kay retired from full-time work a few years ago, she will fully retire at the end of 2016. David Bell stated, “Few people have served any United Methodist Foundation across the country as long as Kay has been dedicated to our Foundation. She will leave behind a great legacy. She cares so deeply about each church client. We pray God’s blessing upon her as she enjoys her next stage of retired life.”
The United Methodist Foundation of Michigan provides a continuum of financial stewardship, asset management, and donor-directed services for Michigan Area United Methodist constituents. Learn more about the ministry by visiting http://UMFMichigan.org.
