The UUPCC offers a transfer service to Institutions wishing to send funds to their overseas partners. This service is not intended for individuals. Please use a different service if you are an individual transferring money overseas (see Sending Money to Individuals, below).
Checks must arrive at the office at least one week before the transfer date. Please use the Transfer Form. Include this form along with the check made payable to "UUPCC" and send to UUPCC, 483 E. Lockwood Ave, Suite 109, St. Louis, MO 63119.
NOTE: The form is for use by the office staff in preparing information for headquarters in the various countries. The bank transfer is done electronically. The paper copies of the forms are not sent. Therefore, please make sure that you contact someone in your partner village to let them know that the money is coming. Transfers take as long as 5-7 business days for the transfer to arrive at church headquarters in Transylvania; as long as 2 weeks in other countries.
Transylvania: The transfers are done monthly from the UUPCC office between the 26 and 30 of each month.

Sending Money to Individuals
There are reliable, secure, low-cost options available for sending money to an individual. If you are an individual sending a birthday gift or a wedding present or private student support that is not part of a church program, the best way to send it is by using a money transfer service such as MoneyGram (available at many CVS locations) or Western Union. These services are easy to use: generally the sender pays at a retail store and is given a reference number that the overseas recipient uses to receive the funds at a local bank. Please note, if we receive a check intended for an individual, we will return it to you.
