The General Council on Finance and Administration (GCFA), in partnership with some of the largest online retailers, has built a shopping tool that provides a cash benefit for a local church, church agency, or college/university/campus ministry when you purchase through the UMCmarket. Make online purchases from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, PetCo, PetSmart, Staples, Walgreens, Lowes Home Improvement, OfficeMax, Sears, Old Navy, FTD, and hundreds more retailers and have a portion of your purchase sent to a local church or a United Methodist-affiliated agency. You can even book travel through Travelocity. How does it work? Create an account at www.UMCMarket.org and designate the beneficiary of your choosing.
