What if you could buy the things you need online and give to your church at the same time? At no cost to you or your church?
The General Council on Finance and Administration of the United Methodist Church is pleased to present UMCmarket, a tremendously rewarding opportunity to earn money for Trinity. UMCmarket makes it possible for our church to receive donations from retailers every time you make an online purchase. And, you don't need to change anything from how you already shop online!
How It Works
Each store at UMCmarket is happy to pay a percentage (usually 1-9 percent) of the purchased amount to our church as a donation. There is no additional cost or charge for either you or Trinity. The stores send UMCmarket the contributions within 30–60 days. Once Trinity reaches $100 in total donations, a check will be mailed to us.
Retailers participating in UMCmarket include Kohl's, Starbucks Coffee, Barnes & Noble, Groupon, Family Christian Stores, Petco, Sierra Trading Post, Overstock.com, Sephora, Staples, Expedia, Macy's, Discount School Supply, Disney Store, Sears, Drugstore.com and Amazon.com, to name a few. A full list of retailers and contribution percentages is available here.
Signing up is free and easy. Visit UMCmarket.org and click on the "Get Started" button. Create an account with your email address and a new password or through your Facebook account. You will then be prompted to download the Easy Give button and find "Trinity UMC Denver CO" in the list of churches.
Using the Easy Give Button to Shop
Using the Easy Give Button app is the easiest way to shop and donate. Once it is downloaded on your computer, you will see the UMC Cross and Flame icon in your browser toolbar. This Easy Give Button allows you to shop directly at the store websites and know you are connected to UMCmarket. You don't have to remember to visit UMCmarket.org before you start shopping.
We hope you will try UMCmarket to help raise funds for Trinity!
