As an added convenience, donors may choose to set up donations to occur on a regular basis.
This is especially convenient, as members can have their tithes and offerings deducted paid automatically based on their pay schedule.
To set up recurring donations, select the Scheduled Giving
option, after logging in.
In addition to the standard Electronic Check
form, described above, donors must select the schedule on which their donations will be withdrawn.
of the donation is how often the donation will occur:
- The donation occurs once per month, you may select the donation to occur either on the 1st or 16th of each month.
- Twice per Month
- The donation occurs twice per month, you may select the donations to occur on either 1st and 16th or 5th and 20th of each month.
- The donation occurs every Sunday, starting on the week of your choosing.
- The donation occurs every other week, on Sunday. You select which Sunday to start these bi-weekly donation.
The number of Installments
is how many time this pattern will repeat.
(i.e. A weekly donation in 52 installments will repeat for one year, while a bi-weekly donation in 52 installments will repeat for two years.)
The Start Date
allows you to choose which day to start your recurring donations.
(i.e. a bi-weekly donation starting on 01/19/2014 will have the first donation made on 02/02/2014, skip the week of 02/08/2014, make the second on 02/16/2014, and so on.)
Recurring donations require donors to register for an account, so they may easily monitor and modify their donations.
