5 Simple Ways to Supplement Your Giving

We are so thankful for those men and women that consistently worship God by giving through CrossPoint Church! Though we occasionally receive large and unexpected gifts, we are unable to budget based on the sporadic. That is why your faithfulness in this area is so important. What we are able to do as a church on a daily basis—from paying our bills, to serving our community, to blessing other ministries—is determined by each week's tithes and offerings. To help you make an even greater difference, below we’ve listed four simple ways to supplement your giving:

AmazonSmile


AmazonSmile is exactly like shopping through the regular Amazon URL address. The prices are the same, as is the inventory. However, here a percentage of your purchase helps out a charity of your choice and CrossPoint Church is a registered charity. Simply sign up HERE, select CrossPoint Church as your charity (search for "CrossPoint Church 84129" here and at the sites below), and start each shopping trip at smile.amazon.com. With each eligible purchase—look for the "Eligible for AmazonSmile donation" on millions of product pages—the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase amount will go back to the ministry here.


Goodshop


Goodshop provides you with shopping deals for more than 30,000 online retailers and the opportunity to support the charity of your choosing at the same time. (The percentage of the donation varies from retailer to retailer.) Sign up HERE and select CrossPoint Church as your charity. The easiest way to utilize Goodshop is to install their browser extension, Gumdrop. It will automatically search and apply coupons, and show you exactly how much each retailer will donates in your search engine results page. Goodshop also offers a "search and give" feature. You can make Goodshop your search engine of choice and for each search you conduct they will donate a penny.


iGive

iGive is similar to Goodshop in that it provides coupons to online retailers, currently about 1,700, who will in turn make a donation to your selected charity when you shop. (Here again, the percentage of the donation varies from retailer to retailer.) Sign up HERE and choose to support CrossPoint Church. iGive also offers a browser button, as well as apps for your smartphone or tablet.


Christian Book Distributors


Christian Book Distributors is a leading resource for Christian goods and has an enormous selection of books, Bibles, and DVDs. No sign up is required to give to CrossPoint Church, just begin your shopping trip HERE, an affiliate link that will earn the ministry 8% back from your purchase.


Smith's Community Rewards

Smith's Food and Drug is committed to helping communities prosper and as such gives back to local non-profit organizations. CrossPoint Church is one of those organizations! Create an online account HERE, register your reward card, and select to support CrossPoint Church (organization #68047). There is no cost to enroll, and enrollment does not affect your fuel points or coupon discounts.
