Support BMUC While Shopping

Deuteronomy 15:10
Give generously to him and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to.

Donate while you shop!

There are many ways to contribute to the ministries at BMUC.  You can even do it at no cost to you!  BMUC has partnered with different companies to direct giving from those companies to BMUC.


Amazon Smile has the same products as Amazon!

umcmarketA way to make micro-donations to us has been developed by UMCMarket

When you sign up with UMCMarket, and designate Berkeley Methodist United Church as your organization, every time you shop online at the shops will make a micro-donation to our church at no cost to you! (When you join, your default organization is the United Methodist Church. Join BMUC and then cancel your UMC membership if you want all your donations to go to BMUC.)
Stores include Macy’s,, Sephora, Expedia and hundreds of other online stores. We receive a check when we accrue $100.
Since eScrip discontinued its online mall, they referred us to iGive. Many of your favorite stores may be participating. Have a look!

ONLINE & LOCAL:  is similar to traditional scrip, in that you buy an instant gift certificate and use it to pay online or at the register. Download the Benefit App on your phone and choose Berkeley Methodist United Church. Pay for your purchase through the App and you can earn money for us. It’s easy, fast and free! Hundreds of merchants. The only way to capture donations from SAFEWAY.


Please go to to renew, update card numbers, or sign up. Let’s aim for 100% participation! Please see Jill if you need assistance or don’t have internet access. Thank you!
