Giving FAQs

Here are some answers to common questions.

On a practical level, we recognize that forms of payment have steadily evolved from cash to checks to card based transactions.   Many people primarily manage their finances online.  Providing the means to support our ministry through online giving has become a priority.  Grace Covenant Church encourages responsible giving that does not create debt for the giver.

Furthermore, online giving is a powerful way to faithfully offer your gifts.  It provides you another way to be consistent, disciplined, and faithful with God’s resources.

You can use a checking account, VISA, MasterCard, and Discover.

Here is an outline of the transaction costs associated with the various forms of online payment. These fees are taken out of the amount given to the church:
If you make a gift and pay with…
•An online check (ACH), then the cost is $.45 + 0.00%
•VISA/MC/Discover credit/debit cards, then the cost is $.35 + 1.5%
Note that the costs will vary depending on the gift amount. Online checks generally minimize the transaction cost.  As an example, an online gift of $100 has the following costs:
•$0.45 for an online check
•$1.85 for VISA/MC/Discover
Online Check: For most gifts, an online check is easy for you and cost effective for us. ACH is a direct transfer from your checking or savings account. All you need is a check for determining the routing code and account number. An online check is the most cost effective online option. 
Credit/Debit Card: Giving via a credit/debit card is easy and efficient, and probably the most familiar online giving option for you. All you need is the information on the card. 

For recurring gifts, you have the option of giving weekly, monthly, or annually.

You can allocate your gift toward the General Fund, Benevolence Fund, Sunday School Missions, or CHIC by selecting either one.

Just create two separate transactions.  For example, select ‘General Fund’ and whatever level of recurrence (one-time, weekly, etc.) and ‘Add to Giving Cart’.  Then ‘Continue Giving’ and create another gift under the ‘Benevolence Fund’ designation.  

Grace Covenant Church is a 501(c)3 charitable non-profit organization.  For each online gift you make, you will receive receipt for your tax records.  The receipt will be delivered via email moments after your gift has been given.

You can see your online giving history by logging into your account.  When you visit the online giving portal, click on ‘Your Account’ or ‘View Your Donations’ tab at the top of the page.
