Unite to save from GCFA
The General Council on Finance and Administration (GCFA) has launched “Unite to Save,” UMCGPO.ORG. This is an online discount and cost-savings vendor management platform designed for United Methodist churches and affiliate organizations.
When churches join this exclusive group-purchasing organization and use the preferred vendors, they will immediately be able to reduce costs on everyday administrative supplies and services. As more churches participate, the lower the prices become for all participating churches. Best of all, the platform is free to all UMC churches and affiliated organizations.
GCFA has also made group-purchasing arrangements with other retailers and service providers to offer discounts to United Methodists throughout the connection. Here’s what’s available; click the links to learn more about each program:
The New England Conference has a business account with Apple. By mentioning the account when you make an Apple purchase, you can receive Apple’s loyal-customer pricing. The account is listed under our initials: NEUMC. Any support needs or questions, contact Stan Misina or a member of his team at Apple Business by phone at (603) 328-3143 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
DISCLAIMER: GCFA does not endorse any commercial enterprise. We have entered into a purchasing agreement to gain some competitive pricing for our ministry and been able to do that in a way that extends that pricing availability to all of our local churches, districts, and annual conferences. We do not guarantee that it will meet all of your needs.
