e - 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.

What Payment Methods do you accept?

We accept donations from debit cards and credit cards (Visa and Mastercard) as well as your Bank Account (our recommendation). While we’re happy to receive your donation by any means, Bank Account donations cost significantly less, allowing more of your gift to go towards the 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 set up 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 substantial gifts (single gifts of over $1000), we recommend you contact us to ensure your gift is processed and deposited in a timely fashion. (Our internal giving security can flag large donations for security reasons).

Is there someone who can help me set up my account, give electronically for the first time, or set up a recurring gift?

Absolutely! Stop by the Place of Grace Church greeting table and ask for assistance.

Will I still receive an annual contribution statement?

Place of Grace Church mails (or emails) annual giving statements by the end of January each year.
