Automated Giving FAQs
Q. What are the major advantages of automated giving?
A. Automated giving is convenient for you and provides consistency for the church. It reduces the number of checks you need to write and the amount of manual processing for the church. It helps to stabilize the budget and saves money.
Q. How does automated giving work?
A. Contributions are transferred automatically from your checking or savings account to the church’s bank account.
Q. How are my automatic contributions deducted and transferred?
A. First, you set up giving as a regular occurrence using the link above. Then, you enter your bank account information. Contributions are then transferred through the Automated Clearing House (ACH) network—the same network already used by families to make mortgage and utility payments or to receive payroll earnings and Social Security income.
Q. When will my contribution be debited from my account?
A. The first debit to your account will occur after your bank account has been verified. You will receive a few small deposits, and a link to enter the amounts you received. Thereafter, your account will be debited according to the frequency you select on our giving site.
Q. How will I keep track of contributions in my check register?
A. Since your contribution is made at a pre-established time, you simply record it in your check register on the appropriate date. Electronic contributions will appear on your bank statement. You will also receive an emailed receipt.
Q. What can I use to prove I made a contribution?
A. Your bank statement will show an itemized list of electronic transactions. If you choose to create an online profile, you can download a giving history at any time.
Q. Is automated giving risky?
A. Automated electronic giving is less risky than writing checks or carrying cash to services. It cannot be lost or stolen and it has an extremely high rate of accuracy.
Q. How much does automated giving cost?
A. It costs you nothing and it costs the church only $.25.
Q. What if I try automated giving and don’t like it?
A. You can cancel your authorization at any time on your online profile. If you lose all of your log-in information, you can cancel by filling out an automated giving form in the church office.
Q. How do I change my contribution once it has begun?
A. You can adjust your giving schedule and amount at any time through your online profile. You do not need to resubmit bank information unless it has changed.
