Support Credo While You Shop Online

You can help us continue sharing our passion by supporting Credo Music. All it takes is a willingness to shop online!


When you shop online on Amazon, you can choose to support Credo Music as your AmazonSmile charity.  For every eligible purchase, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price to your charity of choice.


When you use the portal to enter your favorite retail sites online, Goodshop will donate up to 20% of what you spend – at no cost to you!  In addition to promoting music in our culture among students and other aficionados, you will have access to tons of Goodshop coupons, deals and promotions, all designed to save you money on items such as chocolate-covered strawberries from Edible Arrangements, car rentals through Priceline and jackets from Old Navy.  You can even find awesome deals on Amazon through Goodshop, too!
