Shop and Support!

Have fun shopping for a great cause - First Church!

Amazon Smile and iGive are online shopping programs whereby your purchases yield an automatic donation to First Church. The process is easy, the shopping is the same and there's no additional cost to you. Get started using the simple steps below. 

Amazon.com (best for First Church)

First Church is an Amazon Affiliate. When you click our Amazon shopping link any purchases you make yield a 2.0% - 10.0% commission (depending on several factors) that is paid from Amazon to the church. Here's how it works:

  1. Click the button or link to go to amazon.com.
  2. If this is your first time on amazon.com click New to Amazon? Create an account and follow the steps provided. 
  3. If you already have an Amazon.com account, sign in.

Voila! Anything you purchase will be credited towards our affiliate account. Just remember to begin your shopping by clicking our Shop Amazon link in the footer of every page of our site.


First Church is enrolled in the iGive program. When you click our iGive link, purchases you make yield a small donation made by iGive to the church. Here's how it works:

  1. Click the button or link to go to iGive.com.
  2. If this is your first time on iGive follow the steps to create an account. 
  3. If you already have an iGive account, sign in.
  4. Choose Your Charity. In the Search box type in “First Unitarian Universalist Church of San Diego”. Click Choose.

Amazon Smile

First Church is also a member of AmazonSmile. When you shop at AmazonSmile.com your purchases yield a donation of .5% to the church. While this is not as lucrative as shopping through our affiliate links (described above) it is another potential revenue stream for users of AmazonSmile. Sign up in five simple steps:

  • Go to amazonsmile.com.
  • Sign in with your Amazon account or if you are new to Amazon, create an account.
  • In the "Or pick your own..." search box type First Unitarian Universalist Church of San Diego.
  • Click the Select button.
  • Tick the box to confirm and click the Start Shopping button.

Voila! You’ll see a confirmation message and every time you are logged in to Amazon Smile you’ll see “Supporting: First Unitarian Universalist Church of San Diego” at the top of the screen. You can install a browser widget if you like, but it’s not required. So with the holidays approaching you can shop away knowing that a portion of your purchases is going to First Church. Need help?
