If you choose to donate using electronic means and you are a regular giver at Agapé, using online banking with your financial institution will enable your donation to go farther. Online banking donations that you set up through your financial institution do not result in an expense to Agapé, but using a credit card or debit card does. Agapé pays both percentage and transaction fees for credit and debit card donations. For further information on using online banking, please talk to a customer service representative at your financial institution or check with the institution’s website.
If you are planning to use a credit card to give a donation, we ask that you double check your finances to avoid accumulating credit card debt to give a donation. Hopefully, you are able to pay off your credit card bill each month. If finances are an ongoing struggle for you, we suggest that you contact one of the Elders for possible help with money management.
As a part of the system Agapé is using to manage all of its important information, including finances, Agapé has made arrangements to be able to handle all methods of online financial donations. With the system being used, you can donate by using:
- Credit Cards – Donations can be made using Visa, MasterCard, American Express, JCB, Discover, and Diners Club credit cards.
- Debit Cards – Donations can be made using a debit card issued by your bank or credit union.
- ACH bank transfer – Bank transfer donations can be done with this system. Donations can be set up and managed by you, the donor, or you can get help from Pastor Roger Monsma.
- Text message – Text-to-Give is a new feature available to donors. This feature allows donations to be made using a simple text message. “Text any amount to 84321 to give.” That’s all that is required to made a donation. The first time a donation is made this way, a simple setup is done taking about two minutes, tops. After that, donating is as simple as sending a text. It’s the easiest, most spontaneous way to donate!
Any donation you give will be recorded in your Agapé donation record for reporting at year end when donation records are available for all donors. You also have the ability to view your donation record online at anytime.
If you have any questions about the information on this page or how to do any of the options on this page, please talk to Pastor Roger Monsma for help.
