Discounts available for United Methodists through GCFA agreements

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.
