Online giving will support both debit card and E-check/ACH giving. Debit card gifts will be charged a fee of 3.0% plus $0.30 per transaction. E-check/ACH gifts will be charged 1.0% plus $0.30 per transaction. These charges will be applied to the church, not to you. For this reason, we encourage users of online giving to give by E-check/ACH, since more will be applied to ministry as opposed to transaction fees.
Both one-time gifts and recurring/automatic gifts are supported though this service. Automatic and recurring giving will require you to set up a simple account.
If you desire an automatic, recurring giving option, please consider giving to Cornerstone through your bank’s online bill-pay service. The majority of banks will allow you to make recurring gifts to Cornerstone through this service free of charge, in the same way as you might automatically pay a utility or credit card bill. This will require you to list Cornerstone as a payee in your bill-pay service, and provide an address. Banks commonly mail paper checks free of charge through this service on behalf of their clients, and some members of Cornerstone already give in this way. This is the lowest cost (free to both parties) option that still accommodates the convenience of automatic and recurring giving.
If you choose to give online or through bill pay, we encourage you to do it thoughtfully, and to reflect on your gift to the Lord during the offering time in our worship service as an act of grateful worship.
