ONLINE GIVING IS A SUCCESS!

Many in our Travis Park family are now using online giving for their gifts to Travis Park UMC, Corazon Ministries, Inc., and Deborah's House. 

Here are answers to some FAQs:

▶ Can I pay my tithe or pledge online? 

YES! Online giving is a perfect way to pay your pledge or tithe because you can set up weekly or monthly automatic payments from your bank account or your credit card.  Set it up once, and then you don't have to remember to write checks.

▶ Is there a fee for using online giving? 

Not to you, but the church pays a small fee for all online transactions.  For a bank withdrawal of any amount, the charge is 35 cents. For credit/debit card payments, the charge is 45 cents plus 2.75% of the amount of your gift. (American Express charges 3.5%.)

▶ I get points or miles when I use my credit card;can I help the church pay the fee?

Yes!  When you enter your credit card info, click the Optional box that says "Give additional 2.75% to help offset the processing fee."

▶ How do I use online giving?
