Shop through and benefit your local church

While preparing for purchasing school supplies… doing some home remodeling… planning travel… or doing holiday shopping… You can shop online for your needs and benefit your local church at When you use to shop, a percentage of your purchase (donated by the retailer) comes back to your church. You can select your local UMC to receive your donation, or another UM-related organization like the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), among many others. Logging into takes just a couple of minutes. Each time you shop online, first log into, search for a retailer, click their logo and start shopping. When you visit the retail site through the portal, your total spending is accumulated for your church and when the total donations reach $100, your church will get a check. As you make more purchases throughout the year, the process is repeated. The more shopping done through this portal, the more assistance goes to support the global ministries of the connectional United Methodist Church. —From the UM General Council on Finance and Administration,
