To strengthen our stewardship of treasure at Queen of All Saints, we invite you to consider using a new and easier way to support our parish, namely, automated giving through GiveCentral.
What is Online Giving?
It's an alternate means of support for Queen of All Saints Parish. In lieu of placing your gift in an envelope in the weekly collection, you may sign up to have your gift automatically deducted from your checking, savings or credit card account. You determine the amount and frequency of your gift. There is NO cost to you to participate in the program.
How do I benefit?
Online giving through GiveCentral allows you to plan your giving in the same way you budget your other financial commitments. You no longer have to be concerned about making up missed offertory donations when you are out of town, on vacation, ill, etc. Once registered, you can easily adjust the amount of your automated contribution (up or down) at any time through the confidential, secure Queen of All Saints GiveCentral website portal or by calling the Rectory/Parish Office (773/736-6060) or GiveCentral (312/929-2306). You no longer need to write a check every week as this convenient solution replaces the use of weekly envelopes.
Why should I use GiveCentral?
GiveCentral is a secure way for donors to give easily to Queen of All Saints. GiveCentral is not only convenient for you, it is the lowest cost way for a non-profit organization to collect credit card, debit card and electronic checking payments and donations online.
What does it mean to register?
By registering with GiveCentral, you are creating a secure online profile that you can use to schedule donations. Like online bill paying programs, it means that your credit card or checking account information will be securely saved so you can access it later.
How does it relate to the use of the weekly envelopes?
If you choose to participate in the online giving program, this will replace putting your check or cash into your weekly envelopes. Our Sunday envelopes are designed with a special area for you to check off that you are using online giving to make your contribution should you want to include them in the collection basket each week.
What about Special Collections?
You can specify your giving level for Special Collections and special celebration dates (for example, Christmas, Easter, etc.) when you join the online giving program at GiveCentral, or anytime thereafter.
What about a ONE TIME gift to Queen of All Saints?
You can also make a one time gift to Queen of All Saints through GiveCentral.
How do I use GiveCentral?
Simply visit GiveCentral and select the collections you would like to donate to. When ready, click Checkout and follow the instructions to complete your transaction and account set up. Thank you!
How can I change my information, such as the amount of my donation, bank account number or mailing address after I enroll?
Updating your information is easy. Using your username and password, you may log in to your secure GiveCentral profile and change your profile information or giving pattern. To see your ongoing donation amount, see the "My Events" area below your profile and payment information. You can add, edit, or delete any information on this screen. You may also view your entire giving history by clicking the “Reports” menu button.
How do I know that you're a trusted site? What is your security?
GiveCentral uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption, the industry standard in online payments. SSL ensures that your credit card or checking account number is stored securely with First American Bank. Once your payment method is saved online, only GiveCentral and your chosen organization(s) can see the last four digits of these numbers. The full account number is invisible to everyone but the bank in order to process the donations you have chosen.
