At Valley Brook, we are committed to building God's Kingdom here in Greenville and around the world by strategically returning to the Lord the resources He has entrusted to us. We are partnering with E-Giving.org to provide you with another option for giving besides the traditional offering plate. Please take some time and consider whether e-giving might be the best way for you to give intentionally, systematically, and joyfully to the work that God is doing among us.
There are two options available for donating funds via e-giving: charging your debit card, or authorizing a draft from your bank account. Depending on which option you choose, you'll need to have your debit card or a check with you when you begin.
If you're ready to go, just follow these steps:
That's it! Just select the option you want from the main menu, and you're ready to go. If at any point you get lost and would like help, give us a call at the church office during business hours.
What's the most cost-effective way for me to give?
Generally, bank drafts will incur lower fees than will debit card donations. Also, you can minimize the overall fee amount by giving more money less often (i.e., giving $40 a week will result in more transactional fees than will giving $160 a month).
Will this mean less money will be available for ministry?
We're anticipating that the transactional fees will be more than offset by increased giving, especially as more and more donors elect to schedule automatically recurring donations.
Will I get my giving reports as usual?
All money donated through E-Giving.org will appear in your regular Valley Brook tithing report. You can also view and print your e-giving transaction history at any time on the e-giving website.
Is my information safe?
Absolutely. All E-Giving.org transactions use 128-bit encryption verified through VeriSign Corporation. E-Giving.org servers are dedicated strictly to E-Giving.org (i.e., not shared with other services or clients) and sitting behind multiple firewalls.
Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give,
not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
