$50K Raised by the 21st Annual Malone Dodson Golf Tournament

Special thanks to our 2018 sponsors, golfers, volunteers and supporters of the 21st Annual Malone Dodson Golf Tournament!  Because of you, we raised over $50,000 to benefit The Roswell United Methodist Church Foundation, Inc.  The funds raised support the operational expenses of the Foundation.  This allows the Foundation to utilize the endowments solely for their designated purposes.  This year alone, the Foundation supported $155,000 in grants ranging from local mission support to reaching foreign missions around the world.

  • The transfer must go directly to the charity or charities (such as The RUMC Foundation, Inc.!) of your choice
