Does the church pay bank fees when I give online via Credit Card?
Yes, the church pays bank fees of approximately 2.5% on card donations made via the Church Center app.
Are there giving options where the church doesn’t pay bank fees?
Yes, you can give by e-transfer (instructions below), or by setting up a Pre-Authorized Debit (PAD). You can also give via cash or cheque during the worship service by using the envelopes in the chair back. Please clearly print your name and mailing address so that we can record your donation in order to provide an accurate charitable donation receipt at the end of the year.
What is Pre-Authorized Debit and how do I set it up?
You can set up a pre-Authorized Debit (PAD) authorizing Hope Church Mississauga to withdraw your donation according to your instructions. The dates of these withdrawals are limited to Weekly on Fridays, or the 1st, 15th, and/or 30th of the month. The service fees paid on PAD donations are approximately 2.5% less that those paid on Credit Card donations. Please download the PAD form, fill it in, print it, sign it and send it back with a void cheque to email@example.com.
How do I give by e-transfer ?
- Add Hope Church Mississauga as a new e-transfer recipient with the email address firstname.lastname@example.org. Skip setting a security question as Hope Church Mississauga has Auto Deposit set up.
- As you make the transfer, select the recipient Hope Church Mississauga (that you set up in Step 1).
- IMPORTANT : All donations given via e-transfer will be to Hope Church Mississauga (HCM). If you intend to give all or a portion of your gift towards Hope Church Toronto North (HCTN), please indicate this in the message section of the e-transfer. When donating for the first time by e-transfer, please provide your full name and mailing address so we can process your Annual Charitable Donation receipt. We realized some online bank services limit comments to only 40 characters so if needed please send a separate e-mail with this information to email@example.com.
Is online giving secure?
We’ve taken steps to ensure that the giving process is safe and secure from beginning to end. 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.
