Welcome to Emmanuel e-Giving
Contributions Made Easy
Save time, simplify your life, and support our parish! We’re excited to be able to offer our parishioners a new way to support our ministry. Our new e-Giving will allow you to make contributions to Emmanuel without having to lift a pen to write a check or reach into your wallet for cash!
Here’s How It Works
You authorize a specified amount of money to be electronically transferred directly from your checking or savings account to the parish account. You also specify the frequency of the transfer – one time, weekly or monthly. You can also choose to donate twice a month but you’ll need to sign up using our hard copy signup form rather than signing up online through our secure e-Giving signup link.
When you sign up for e-Giving you’ll see that you can split your donation much like you can now using our envelopes. You can specify an amount for any or all of the following categories:
- General Outreach
- Capital Improvements
- Abundance Fund
- Other (please specify - new vestments, discretionary funds, etc.)
e-Giving is fast, safe and easy! In fact, it’s less risky than checks, as it cannot be lost, stolen, or destroyed. You do not pay any fees for the electronic transfers and you save the cost of the check.
You’ll still receive periodic donation statements from the parish for your tax records, and your bank statements will provide you with a record of each transfer as additional proof of your contributions.
You can change how your donation is allocated or cancel your eGiving donation authorization at any time by notifying the church in writing.
Things to Keep in Mind
You cannot pick a date for your first (or any one-time) donation that is less than three days into the future. It takes that long to set up the transaction.
Funds will transfer out of your checking or savings account and into Emmanuel’s account on the day you specify or the next business day if the specified day falls on a bank holiday or a weekend.
