UMCmarket: Financial Initiative Benefits Local Church Members
The General Council on Finance and Administration (GCFA) Office of Corporate Partnership is announcing a new program. UMCmarket that will allow members of The United Methodist Church the opportunity to shop online at some of their favorite places while generating a donation
to their local church.
UMCmarket – Online shopping to benefit the local church
UMCmarket, an online shopping community designed especially for members of The United Methodist Church, provides a portal to access popular retailers. Members can shop online whenever they want. With each purchase, a percentage of the sale can go to the church the shopper chooses. Membership is completely free and it takes less than a minute to join.
The benefit of the program is that a shopper can designate his/her own local church to receive a percentage of the sales. For information on how a local church can add the link to their website, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Smith said “GCFA is excited about forming this strategic partnership with Zebraplace and Foundation Automation. The technical support each organization provides in building this platform makes this program possible. This secure online shopping portal is an easy way for church
members and their friends to support the mission and ministries of their local church. Members canimmediately begin supporting their church ministries by signing up on the following link: www.umcmarket.org.”
