Giving Opportunities


Over the past 20 years your contributions have helped over 237 individuals receive university degrees from UBL. One such student from Honduras just received a Bachelor’s in Theological Studies and plans to be an agent of change in the battle against government corruption. We invite you to continue partnering with us through two tax deductible giving opportunities.  

  • United Methodist Advance - The United Methodist Church has been a faithful supporter of the UBL and this long-standing relationship has impacted many lives, especially through faithful giving to UBL-designated Advance projects.

UBL’s new Advance project (#3022263) is the Accessible and Inclusive Theological Education for Latin America and the Caribbean Project (TELAC). As the name implies, TELAC is focused on offering students throughout the region access to theological education, be it online, residence study, or independent study. Project funds are especially directed to providing students with scholarships and materials necessary to participate in the UBL online bachelor’s and master’s degree programs.

  • Who is impacted: More than 150 students from 22 countries have expressed their interest in the UBL online degree programs. They are faced with the obstacles of travel limitations due to job and family obligations, lack of funds and lack of accredited instructions available in the region.
  • How do your funds help: Your donations make it possible for students to access UBL’s accredited online degree programs from their own countries and through means that respond to their context and the demands their ministries make on their time
  • Long term impact: Local church and community leaders are equipped for social and ecclesial ministries focused on human dignity and fullness of life
  • Yearly Advance funding goal: $5,000


  • Presbyterian Church (USA) -  The Presbyterian Church and the UBL have a long and successful relationship that began in the 1960’s. Your gifts to these Extra Commitment Opportunity Project Accounts provide student scholarships and contribute to the work of UBL.


UBL students come from over 22 Latin American and Caribbean countries. Our students represent all ages of men and women as well as a range of social, economic and indigenous groups. 

This project furnishes funds for the infrastructure of the UBL Harry Strachan Library, cataloging and computer automation and staff salaries. The UBL library is used by all students and professors and is vital to the educational process.  

Supports all UBL programs including degree, non-degree, extension and community education courses.
