What is online giving?
Consider these five statistics reported in a recent payment transaction study by the Federal Reserve Bank.
- 20.1 billion fewer checks paid in 2014 than 2000.
- Electronic payments made up over three-quarters of all non-cash payments.
- The number of electronic payments grew 9.3 percent per year from 2006 to 2009.
- The proportion of electronic payments to overall non-cash payments increased from 67.9 percent to 77.6 percent over the same period.
- Over half (60.0 percent) of all non-cash payments in 2009 were made with debit, credit, or prepaid cards.
Online giving is the process where you authorize your bank, or Vanco Services, to deduct a specified amount from your debt card, credit card or bank account. You choose your giving frequency and amount, and you can make changes at any time. By setting up a profile and password, you can take advantage of the highly secure environment for your transaction and use the online tools for managing and monitoring your contributions. We only encourage you to use the credit card option if you pay off your balance each month.
