Electronic Giving Information - St. Boniface ParishOur Lady of Lourdes Parish

What is Electronic Giving?

  • The term Electronic Giving encompasses a wide range of secure, automatic payment methods that can be used to make regular church offerings and other contributions without the need to write checks, carry cash or prepare envelopes.
  • Electronic Giving works the same as the automatic payment methods used by most families to make mortgage or utility payments—and to receive payroll earnings or social security income.

Why Electronic Giving?

  • Provides convenience for you
    • There is no need to write checks or bring cash to church when contributions are made automatically. Your contributions are transmitted electronically and are deposited directly into the church bank account.
  • Keeps you on track with stewardship commitments
    • Scheduled, automated offerings prevent you from falling behind on financial pledges.
    • Guarantees your uninterrupted support
      • Even the most committed churchgoers will occasionally miss services—and weekly offerings—due to illness, poor weather or vacation.
    • Provides you with today’s most popular payment methods
      • Many families—especially young families—rarely write checks or carry cash.
      • ACH – Automatic Check Handling
      • Credit and Debit Cards
      • Online Giving
    • It’s good for our parishes
      • Provides much-needed donation consistency for our parishes
        • Seasonal donation slump is reduced
        • Financial forecasting is improved
        • Planning can proceed with confidence
      • Saves church staff time
        • As the effort required to process cash and check donations decreases, the efficient use of staff time increases!
      • Adds greater security in the church office
        • Reduces handling of checks and cash.
      • Has a positive impact on the environment
        • Donating electronically reduces the amount of natural resources consumed in the production, transportation, processing and disposal of paper checks.

Contact the church office to request “I give electronically” cards to drop in the offering plate.
