General Council on Finance and Administration Announces New Method for Funding Ministry

Date Posted: 4/13/2017

A new corporate sponsor is providing a fundraising opportunity to empower churches and members to seamlessly connect to local merchants who give back to non-profit groups in their community.
 
Who says nothing is free anymore? The General Council on Finance and Administration’s Boosterville platform is available to United Methodist churches and affiliated organizations at no cost. Through this new funding resource, churches and affiliated organizations can raise money for ministry and outreach needs including youth programs, local and international mission projects, capital campaigns, and more.
 
Boosterville is an offers and loyalty platform that seamlessly connects merchants with cause-driven buyers. No more overpriced wrapping paper or cookie dough sales; this system encourages everyone to buy what they want with a variety of merchants that will donate a portion of the purchase to the ministry or organization. Watch the video to see how it works.
 
Boosterville CEO Pam Cooper says, “We’re thrilled to offer this new fundraising opportunity to churches across the U.S. Finding new ways to fund church programs is critical to ministries of local churches. We are happy Boosterville can be part of the solution for The United Methodist Church and its members.”
 
She adds, “By supporting community businesses, the community will support you.” An added bonus: churches can have greater visibility as a beneficiary of funds in their communities. Participants can rest easy knowing there is a mobile app for convenience and that both personal and financial data are protected under careful security.
 
“GCFA is proud to announce Boosterville as a vetted corporate sponsor. We look forward to Boosterville sharing more about their ministry-support platform with local churches and affiliated United Methodist organizations,” adds Bari Beasley, Chief Officer of Marketing and External Relations.
  
Material on how church members can use the program to support local church ministries will be available by early May, 2017. If you would like early access to the Boosterville, contact Pam Cooper, pam.cooper@boosterville.com, or 317-689-8585.
