IS IT SAFE TO GIVE ONLINE?
Yes. In many ways giving online is safer than writing a check because an electronic gift cannot be lost or stolen. The security of the system is continually managed by our church’s secure management site, Fellowship One.
WHAT TYPES OF ACCOUNTS CAN I GIVE FROM?
You can give online from your checking account.
ARE THERE ANY FEES INVOLVED?
Not to you. You will not pay any fees with an online gift. In addition, online gifts are a more cost efficient way for the church to process donations.
CAN I MAKE A ONE-TIME CONTRIBUTION?
Yes. The system allows you the option of either making a one-time contribution or setting up a recurring contribution.
CAN I VIEW MY GIVING HISTORY ONLINE?
Yes. The site will allow you to view the complete history of your contributions, given either online or other- wise. Once you’ve created an account, you will able to contribute and view your past contributions immediately. However, if the email which you register with does not match the church records, you will not be able to view your giving history until you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and the email address which you registered for online giving, and request the email address be added to your family profile.
WILL I STILL RECEIVE A CONTRIBUTION FORM?
Yes. The church will continue to send year-end contribution statements to your address on file for tax purposes.
WHEN WILL CONTRIBUTIONS BE TAKEN FROM MY ACCOUNT?
Contributions will be taken from your specified bank account within 48 business hours of the date you requested. This time frame allows time for the contribution to process through your bank and the church’s bank. If the date of your contribution falls on a weekend or a holiday, the transaction will be initiated on the next banking day.
CAN I GIVE TO A SPECIFIC CAUSE?
No. At this time you can only give to the general fund. We are looking to provide this capability in the future. More information will be communicated at that time.
