Online Giving FAQ

What is Online Giving?

Online Giving is a direct payment program whereby your contribution is debited automatically from your checking, savings, or credit card account into your church's bank account.

What are the advantages of Online Giving?

It makes it easy to fulfill stewardship commitments, even when you can't attend church. You never have to bring cash or checks to church. Giving electronically also helps our parishes save money and improve the budget! If you choose to donate online, the parish can eliminate the expenses of ordering and mailing envelopes.

How are my contributions automatically deducted from my account?

Once you complete the online registration form, the contribution amount you specify will automatically be transferred from your bank account to the church's bank account.

When will my contribution be deducted from my account?

Your electronic contribution will be debited on the date you specify on the donation form. You can choose whatever day of the week or month is best for you!

If I do not write checks, how do I keep my checkbook balance straight?

Since your contribution is made at a pre-established time, you simply record it in your check register on the appropriate date. Electronic contributions are recorded for you on your bank statement as well as your online reports.

Without a canceled check, how can I prove I made my contribution?

Your bank statement gives you an itemized list of electronic transactions as well as your online reports.

Can I put different amounts in offerings and have all of them withdrawn at different times?

You can set up to contribute to different offerings at different times; HOWEVER you will have to do each one separately. You will receive a receipt for each one.

What do I put in the collection basket on Sunday?

We know it can be embarrassing to let the basket go by without contributing. If you're signed up for online giving and have envelopes, you can simply place the empty envelope in the basket with the "Other" box selected and write "Online". If you're not signed up for envelopes, any piece of paper that says "Online" or "I gave online" would be just fine.

What if I change bank accounts?

Simply login and update your account information.

Is Online Giving risky?

It's less risky than writing checks or bringing cash to church. Electronic contributions cannot be lost, stolen or destroyed and have an extremely high rate of accuracy. All transacations using the online giving site are completely secure.

What if I try Online Giving and do not like it?

You can cancel your authorization by deleting your accounts and donation dates.

How do I sign up for Online Giving?

Complete the online registration form and select the donations and the amount you would like to donate along with your credit or debit card information. It's that easy!
