Can I schedule recurring donations?
Yes, you can specify whether you want your contribution made one time, weekly, twice per month, monthly, quarterly, or yearly. You can set up as many schedules as you would like, so it is possible to give a monthly gift as well as a weekly one.
**Note: When you schedule a recurring donation, a small validation amount (.10 – .30 cents) will pend on your account BUT WILL NOT be charged or post to your account. It is only for validation purposes. Please allow 2-3 days for this to disappear.
Will I still receive a contribution statement?
Yes, we will mail your year-end giving statement directly to your home address.
What if I need to change my contribution?
You can view, edit, or delete a scheduled contribution at anytime, including the bank account number, date, frequency and amount as long as you created an account on the giving page.
Is online giving secure?
We’ve taken steps to ensure that the giving process is safe and secure from beginning to end. Wausau Alliance Church and our online giving provider ‘Simple Give’ take security very seriously. All information is encrypted with 256 bit SSL encryption. SSL is an acronym for “Secure Socket Layer”, a security protocol that provides communications privacy over the Internet. It is the same technology used by banks and e-commerce companies such as Amazon.com to keep your information safe and secure during transactions.
What are the costs of online giving when I use this method to give to the church?
Because at this time the church is only set up for online bank transfer (ACH/eCheck), the costs are very low in comparison to other online giving methods. There is no large percentage charge as found with debit cards or credit cards (sometimes over 3%), but only a transaction charge of $0.27 cents for each bank transfer transaction, along with a 1% transaction fee.
How long does it take for online giving to process?
Generally it takes 3-5 business days to withdraw from your bank account and deposit into the church’s financial accounts.
Who is the church’s online giving provider?
The church uses ‘Simple Give‘ as its online giving provider.
Who do I contact for more information?
