About Online Giving
The following is information regarding our exciting new form of online tithing. Congregants at present time can give via three different forms of online giving. The simplest way, since you’re here, is to click the gold “GIVE” button below. This will take you to Tithe.ly’s online giving platform. Once there, it takes merely minutes to enter the required information and give.
The more tech-savvy among us can give via text message by texting “give” to 833-390-0251. This number is unique to our church and will take you directly to our Tithe.ly app, where you enter your information one time. From then on, every time you text “give” to that same number, you will be able to select your amount, submit and you’re done!
The third and final way is to download the mobile app, search for Emmanuel Reformed Church (make sure you select the correct Emmanuel Reformed Church and follow the instructions to create your account. Once set up, it’s quick and easy like the other two options.
There are transaction fees as with any online giving platform. When you use a card, it is a 2.9% plus .30 cents per transaction. ACH/bank (direct deposit) is 1% plus .30 cents. AMEX is 3.5% plus .30 cents. You can choose to donate the fees in addition to your gift.
Givers are able to select from five different options:
- general tithe;
- building fund;
- split the gift between the three options above; or
- 4th Sunday Magnifying Missions.
When selecting to split your gift, it will be split into thirds, or you can leave your desired breakdown in the memo box.
The Consistory is excited to be announcing this new way of tithing as it has been a long time coming and should complement our traditional ways of giving. Let this be another way of advancing God’s kingdom.
