Do you shop online? Did you know that you can support MUMC with your online shopping, and it doesn’t cost you a dime?
New Donation Program!
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 MUMC. UMCmarket makes it possible for our church to receive donations from retailers every time you make an online purchase. The best thing is that you don’t need to change anything from how you shop today, and every small donation makes a difference. This allows our church family to do together what we cannot do alone.
How it Works.
Every store at UMCmarket is happy to pay a percentage of the purchased amount as a donation. There is no additional cost or charge for either you or our church. The stores send UMCmarket the contributions within a variable time frame of 30-90 days. Once our church reaches $100 in total donations, a check will be mailed.
Signing Up is Free!
You can easily sign up for free. When you go to UMCmarket, you will click on the “Get Started” button.

Easy Give Button.
Using the Easy Give Button App is the easiest way for you to shop and donate. Once it’s downloaded, you will see the UMC Cross and Flame icon in your browser toolbar. This Easy Give Button will allow you to shop directly at store websites and let you know that you are connected.
Research shows that members who download the Easy Give Button generate more than double the amount of donations to their church. You don’t have to remember to visit UMCmarket.org before you start shopping!

See how fast your donations will make a difference! For help or any questions, UMCmarket’s customer service team is ready to help. Just email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We live in a global village, and the world is our parish. When we give generously, our gifts do wonderful, life-changing things in the name of Jesus Christ.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How does this program work?
This program is free. You earn every time you click through this site, app, or browser extension, and shop. The amount you earn is shown for each store. In addition to earning, you will also get the same sales/discounts (and often better) as if you went directly to the store site.
How can I be sure I get credit for my transactions?
You just need to click through to the retailer, and be sure you do not use an alternate coupon code or click through another browser extension during your purchase process.
Missing a transaction?
If you do not see a transaction post within 3 days, please sign in and submit the missing transaction details on your Account screen (in the menu). We accept missing transaction submissions up to 30 days after the transaction date. Missing transactions are researched on a best effort basis for 60 days after submission. Given the fact that some retailers are more responsive than others, after 60 days we update the status to expired, to reflect the reality that the retailer is unlikely to attribute the transaction to you. Each transaction that is received from a retailer is considered pending up to approximately 90 days from the original transaction date, and moves from pending to finalized based on the merchant notification to us that the sale is final, typically based on their return policy.
How can I see all the offers from one store?
