Frequently Asked Questions about Text Giving

Is this Text Giving secure?

Yes! The credit card payment processor is PCI Level 1 certified, the highest certification possible, so you can be certain that your financial information is secure. Phone numbers are stored on a secure communication server built specifically for facilitating communication via phone numbers. It will never be used for any purpose other than your giving.

Will text contributions be included in my quarterly contribution statement?

Yes. Text contributions will be posted to your giving records just like any other gift (e.g., cash, checks, online, giving kiosk).

What if someone takes my phone and texts in a bogus contribution?

Within the first 15 minutes of making a donation, you can respond with the word “refund” to cancel your donation. After 15 minutes, you will need to contact the church and we can issue a refund for you. You will receive both a text confirmation and email anytime a gift is made.

Can you designate giving to "ministry" or "Project Game Change" via text?

Yes. Simply use the keywords “ministry” or “game” with a dollar amount to designate your gift. For example, “ministry 100” or “game 50” (no quotes). If you wish to designate some to each category, you would send two separate texts.
