While preparing for purchasing school supplies…or for the change in the seasons…doing some home remodeling…or planning late summer or fall travel…doing some early holiday shopping…or you just love to shop online… There is a way to shop online for your needs and benefit your local church or other UM organization. Shop www.umcmarket.org.
When you use UMCMarket.org to shop, a percentage of your purchase (donated by the retailer) – combined with the purchases of other members of your congregation – are donated back to your church. You can select your local United Methodist Church as the recipient of your donation, or you can select from a long list of other United Methodist related organizations like the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCor), The Advance, JustPeace, MARCHA, among many, many others.
Not a current user? Go to www.umcmarket.org and Log in. It takes just a couple of minutes. Each time you shop online, first log into umcmarket.org, search for the retailer you want to shop online with, click their logo and start shopping. When you visit the retail site through the UMCmarket.org portal, your total spending is accumulated for your church and when the total donations reach $100+ your church will get a check.
Now, what about the donation? The donations are processed by the support staff at UMCMarket.org. Once your total donations (generated from a percent of purchases) equal or surpass $100, your church or other organization you designate will receive a check. And then, as you make more purchases throughout the year, the process is repeated. Everyone benefits – you conveniently shop online as you have always done and the church or other UM organization you want to help receives monies for ministries to do the things throughout the connection that make us United Methodists.
Be sure to share www.umcmarket.org with family and friends. The more shopping that is done through this portal, the more assistance is given throughout the United Methodist connection to support the global ministries of the connectional United Methodist Church.
