Frequently Asked Questions
Is it safe to give online?
Yes. In many ways giving online is safer than writing a check in that an electronic gift cannot be lost or stolen. Online giving transactions are processed through a secure service provider. All transactions go directly to the church's bank account.
Why use online giving?
Online giving is a convenient and secure way for donors to give. It is cost effective for the church as it eliminates the manual processing of paper checks and cash. Do you pay your bills online through your bank? When you can't be in church while on vacation or away on business, you can still make your contribution.
What types of accounts can I give from?
You can give online from either a credit (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover) or any bank debit card or a PayPal account. All are processed through FPC's PayPal account.
Who has control and access to my online giving records?
You alone have control and access to your online account. The church financial secretaries (counters) do receive notification when your online gift is made and what fund it is for, so it can be received and recorded properly.
Will I still receive my quarterly contribution statements from the church?
Yes. The church will continue to issue contribution statements for tax purposes. These statements will show both your giving at church and your online giving.
When will contributions be taken from my account?
Contributions will be taken from your specified account when you click on the "Donate" button and will be deposited directly into the church's bank account.
How will I know that I set up my contribution correctly?
Immediately after submitting your contribution, you will receive a detailed email confirmation from PayPal.
There is now NO FEE to FPAc!
Are there any donor fees involved with online giving?
No. You will not pay any fees with an online gift. The full amount of your gift will be tax deductible and credited to your account.
Are there any church administrative fees involved with online giving?
No. PayPal has a new program for Non-Profits and the church pays nothing to use the service.
What Funds can I give to online?
You can contribute to your Regular Offering, the Capital Campaign, or any other special offerings that you wish.
