ELCA Advantage Program
The ELCA Advantage Program is a national, cooperative buying program designed for use by ELCA congregations and affiliated agencies, institutions, and organizations. This program enables collective, volume purchasing of commonly-used products and services.
The ELCA Churchwide organization has developed partnership agreements with preferred providers who offer high-quality products and services, competitive prices, and excellent customer service and support. When an agreement is negotiated, all ELCA affiliated entities may utilize it. The decision to use an agreement is voluntary and there are no membership fees. Some agreements may also be used by individual congregational members and staff who are employed by an ELCA affiliate. Agreements include pricing and performance standards, and periodic evaluations are conducted before renewal or renegotiation.
