Online Giving -

Frequently Asked Questions

Is my giving information secure?

Absolutely! Any personal or financial information you enter is encrypted using SSL security – the same state-of-the-art security measures used by online retailers, banks, and other financial institutions.

Is there a fee to give online?

ParishSoft Giving does not charge online donors a fee to give online. However, it does charge the church a small fee to process each transaction.

What Payment Methods do you Accept?

We accept donations from credit/debit cards as well as your bank account (our recommendation). While we’re happy to accept your donation by any means, bank account donations cost significantly less (in processing fees), allowing more of your gift to go towards our parish ministry.

Do I need to Create an Account?

No. That said, we do recommend creating one so that you can view your online giving history. Also, you will be asked to create an account if you’d like to setup recurring donations.

Will I receive a receipt when I give online?

Yes. You will be emailed a donation receipt each time you give. Again, we recommend creating an account so you can view all your online giving history.

Is there a minimum or maximum I can give online?

No. That said, for very large gifts, we recommend you contact us to ensure your gift is processed in a timely fashion. (Our internal giving security may flag large donations for security reasons). We also encourage you to consider adding a small percentage to your donation to help cover the costs of processing online donations.
