Our electronic giving program offers convenience for you and much-needed donation consistency for our congregation, especially as we face the current challenges connected with not being able to take up a weekly collection in church. If you are currently giving on a weekly basis, you will no longer need to write out 52 checks a year or prepare 52 envelopes. As travel, illness and other circumstances prevent you from attending services, this program will allow your weekly offerings to continue on an uninterrupted basis. Giving online is easy, is encrypted, so is safe and secure, and allows you to set up automatic recurring contributions and view your complete online giving history from anywhere you have access to the Internet, including our parish app. Contributions can be debited automatically from your checking or savings account, or you can also use debit/credit cards to give.
Simply follow these easy steps:
Click on this button:
or use the myParish app on your smartphone,
Click on the Online Giving button (“Giving” button on the app, then Access Online Giving),
Click on the Create Profile button, then
Follow the onscreen instructions to create an online profile and to schedule your recurring contributions.
Online giving can be used for special collections, holy day gifts, donations to the school and tuition assistance, CCD payments, as well as buying raffle tickets! Once you sign up, we will no longer send you envelopes unless you request them. In lieu of envelopes, click on offering-plate-cards to print off electronic giving cards to put in the collection, if you wish. If you have any questions or need help setting things up, let us know, and we will be happy to walk you through it!
Many companies offer matching gift programs that often double the potential of your donations, and may even match a portion of an Illinois Tax Credit Scholarship donation. All matching gifts must be contributed to St. Mary’s School. Contact your employer to begin this process, and if you have any questions, let us know.
