Financially Support the Church Without Spending an Extra Penny!

[NOVEMBER 6, 2019] For the past several years many members and coworkers of the United Church of God who have purchased products from Amazon.com have participated in its AmazonSmile program in which 0.5% (½ of one percent) of the purchase price of eligible products is donated to the Church. As of October 7, 2019, these donations have totaled nearly $10,000!

We are very thankful to everyone who has been and continues to participate in this worthy program. In addition, we would like to encourage others who purchase items at Amazon.com, to join in this important effort. Will you help? It’s easy to do and it won’t cost you an extra penny to participate. The AmazonSmile Foundation will send donations directly to the home office.

All you need to do is go to smile.amazon.com  and set up (or log into) your Amazon account and select the United Church of God as your designated charity. Then, every time you shop at Amazon.com  first go to smile.amazon.com  where you’ll see the same products, prices and shopping features as you’ll find at Amazon.com.

To read additional details about this program you are welcome to visit this United Church of God help page: https://www.ucg.org/help/how-can-i-support-the-united-church-of-god-when-shopping-at-amazoncom .

Thank you for your continuing, excellent help and support. It is appreciated greatly!

    Yes, and it can’t be emphasized enough that you must make sure your link begins with “smile” and not “www”. For instance, if responding to an ad, after you click it, look at the address field in your browser and change the “www” to “smile”. Hit “Enter” or “Return”, and almost certainly you will see the exact same page layout with the same price, but now it will be credited for a contribution from Amazon to UCG if you make the purchase.
