Online Giving FAQs
What Is The Benefit Of Online Giving?
The tool supports your decision to faithfully give to the work God has for Our Savior’s Church.
What Is The Benefit For Our Savior’s Church?
Regular giving helps us plan what ministry activities we can support and fosters effective stewardship.
Is It Safe & Secure?
We use the strongest level of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption supported by web standards. You may verify this by clicking on the lock or key icon displayed in most browsers when you are on an https page.
May I Make A One-Time Contribution?
Yes, use the tool whenever and however you’d like. It’s your decision.
How Should I Set Up My Recurring Contribution?
You select the start date and how often you want to give. Many within our church prefer to set up their recurring giving immediately on their pay dates. While we would like to honor that intention, we’ve discovered that every bank processes ACH transactions differently. In order to make sure you experience the best results, we recommend that you set up recurring gifts at least 24 hours after your scheduled payroll deposits.
What If I Get Paid On The 15th And 30th, How Do I Set Up A Recurring Gift?
If you find that the selections of “weekly” and “every two weeks” don’t match up with your regular pay schedule, you can use the “monthly” option and set up two regular recurring gifts: one on the 15th day of the month and one on the 31st day of the month. Be aware if a month has only 28, 29, or 30 days, your gift may not post until the 1st.
What If I Want To Increase Or Change My Giving?
You can modify your recurring gifts at any time. If you need assistance with this or have any questions, please contact our Finance Department by calling 337-839-8999.
How Will I Know The Transaction Occurred?
You receive an email confirmation after the transaction occurs. All donations will also appear on your Giving Statement, which you can access at any time through your profile in OSCfamily.
What If I Change My Mind?
You may cancel a reoccurring online gift at any time.
If you have any questions or need assistance, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our very best to respond within 1-2 business days.
