It is a program to financially support the Parish through automated monthly contributions from your checking, savings or credit card account. It is an alternative to the weekly envelope system. There is NO cost to participate in the program.
If you choose to participate in the Automated Giving Program, it replaces your use of the weekly envelopes, saving the parish that expense.
It enables the Pastor to more accurately predict the offertory revenue and make sound planning decisions. It ties in with an accounting program that we already use, so it minimizes data entry.
Enrollment is easy and free. Just do any of the following:
ParishPay is a private company founded in 2001. It is not owned,
operated, or associated with any diocese; it operates worldwide. The
Archdiocese of New York recommends ParishPay and has arranged for them
to contact each parish in the Archdiocese. So it is through them that
we are able to offer their secure website.
Yes, all automated giving participants have an opportunity to contribute to second and special collections at the parish.
You can make the changes at the parish rectory (change form) or enter them directly by logging into your ParishPay account at the secure ParishPay website.
Automated transfers from your checking, savings or major credit cards such as Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express can be used to make monthly contributions, one-time gifts and pledge payments.
Yes, all contributors enrolled in the program can print out an annual receipt directly from the website every January. This can be used as documentation for the Internal Revenue Service. The parish will also receive a list of the parishioners and their contributions.
You can offer a token donation or small donation slips are available for people who are participating in the program to drop in the basket at the offertory. They say, "We lovingly made our offertory gift automatically."
Yes, one-time gifts or pledge for a specific term are gratefully accepted.
