Online Giving – FAQs

                                                                                                                                    What are the advantages of Online Giving?

It’s easier for you to make donations. You never have to bring cash or checks to church. Giving electronically also helps St. Matthew Parish save time and money.

How are my contributions automatically deducted from my account?

Once you complete the online registration form, the contribution amount you specify will automatically be transferred from your bank account to St. Matthew’s bank account.

When will my contribution be deducted from my account?

Your electronic contribution will be debited on the date you specify on the “My Gifts” page.

If I do not write checks, how do I keep my checkbook balance straight?

Since your contribution is made at a pre-established time, you simply record it in your check register on the appropriate date. Electronic contributions are recorded for you on your bank statement as well as your online reports.

Without a canceled check, how can I prove I made my contribution?

Your bank statement provides an itemized list of electronic transactions as well as your online reports.

Can I put different amounts in offerings and have all of them withdrawn at different times?

You can contribute to different offerings at different times; however, you will have to do each one separately. You will receive a receipt for each one.

What if I change bank accounts?

Login and update your account information anytime on the “My Payment Methods” page. Your checking, savings, and credit card account information can be edited or deleted, and new accounts can be added.

How much does Online Giving cost?

It costs you absolutely nothing.

What if I try Online Giving and don’t like it?
