Donations FAQ

Online giving is a safe and easy way to support the ministries of Hope of Christ. This system enables you to support the church by making a one-time contribution or establishing a recurring contribution.

Q: Is it safe to give online?
Yes. In many ways giving online is safer than writing a check because an electronic gift cannot be lost or stolen. The security of the system is continually managed by Tithe.ly.

Q: What types of credit cards can I give from?
You can give online from your MasterCard, Visa, or Discover, or debit cards with the MasterCard or Visa logo.

Q: What types of bank accounts can I give from?
Checking and Savings accounts can be used for Tithe.ly.

Q: Are there any fees involved with giving online?
Giving by credit card is a 2.9% fee for the Church while there is only a 1% fee for bank account (ACH) transfers.  We prefer you give by Bank Account for regular giving and you may choose to cover the fee in your giving at the time of the donation.

 

Q: Can I change my personal information or the amount or the frequency of my gift once I have set it up?
Yes. You can change or cancel your contribution at any time before the date of your next contribution. We recommend you set up an account with tithe.ly at the time of your contribution and you can make changes at any time.  You can also contact us and we will cancel your contribution as requested.

Q: Can I review my donation history online?
Yes, with tithe.ly.

Q: Will I still receive regular contribution statements from the church?
Yes. The church will continue to send year-end contribution statements to your address on file for tax purposes.

 

Q: Will I be able to give to Hope of christ on my phone?
Yes.  Go to the Apple or Google store and search for the tithe.ly app.
