Online Giving Frequently Asked Questions

What is Online Giving? Online Giving is an easy and convenient way to support the ministries of Trinity United Methodist Church. The benefits of Online Giving include the convenience of being able to give from anywhere at any time that is convenient for you, not having to write checks, and the ability to set up recurring donations so you don’t miss an opportunity to give when you are away from your computer.

What payment methods are offered at Online? Our donation page can accept direct debit payments from a checking or savings account using Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). This reduces the work required by the church’s financial secretary to process traditional paper checks and cash.

How does Trinity’s Online Giving work? Contributors click on the above button, this will take them from the church’s web site to a secure donation page hosted by Vanco Services LLC. Contributions can be set up in one of two ways. To make a one-time donation (no profile will be required), a contributor simply enters his or her name, address, payment method, payment amount and other essential information and then submits a donation. For recurring donations (profile will be required), a contributor creates a password-protected profile on the first visit to the donation page by entering his or her name, address, payment method and other required information before setting up a recurring donation. On future visits, the contributor simply logs in to make, change, or view donations without the need to re-enter personal profile information. Recurring payments can be set up as weekly, biweekly, or monthly donations. For both methods, the donor will see a printer-friendly confirmation page and may also request an automatic email confirmation.

How does Trinity process online donations? Trinity United Methodist Church uses Vanco Services to process direct withdrawal donations. Vanco Services handles all of the security necessary for processing the transaction and then transfers the money into the church’s bank account. The church will receive an electronic notification when a donation is made.

How secure is online giving/payments? Vanco Services provides a secure way to make a donation using the contributor’s bank account and personal information. This information is processed only on Vanco Services’ secure system which is verified by GeoTrust, Inc. Vanco Services is a PCI (Payment Card Industry) Level 1 compliant service provider which means all transactions are handled in accordance with the most rigorous security standards.

Is there any charge or fee to me for this service? No, there is no charge to the donor. You select the dollar amount to be given and that is the amount that will be charged. The entire donation is tax deductible. The church pays a small fee to Vanco Services for the convenience and security of the services they provide.
