Benefits include:

  • Low rates for credit cards and ACH. We don't charge more for American Express!
  • Donors can optionally help cover the processing fees so more of their donation makes it to the church
  • Accept payments on custom forms and event registrations
  • Set up and manage recurring giving
  • Text giving
  • Gross vs. Net reporting on all online contributions which means bank reconciliation is easy. Each individual deposit is listed in One Church with all the corresponding details.

All financial settings can be found under "Contributions > Settings" from the left hand navigation. Setting up the system for online giving involves the following.

  1. Enrolling in One Church Giving
  2. Setting up available funds (optional)
  3. Activating text giving (optional)
  4. Enabling the giving portal

Enrolling in One Church Giving

You will need the Financial Settings permission to perform these actions.

Go to Contributions > Settings from the left hand navigation menu. Click on "Enroll in One Church Giving" at the top and complete the form that appears. Afterwards, you will be given a link to a "Click to Agree" form which must be accepted to finish enrollment. Once accepted, the approval and set up process typically takes about 40 minutes or less.

If you need help or have any questions, please feel free to contact us and we'll be happy to assist. You can also see program rates and details from our website. Please note, our processing rates depend on your monthly processing volume (credit card and ACH). If you expect to process more than $25,000 a month, please reach out to support to inquire about lower rates.

Once your One Church Giving account is active, the "Visit Giving Portal" button will appear in the top left area.
