eGiving.com provides churches and non-profit organizations the ability to accept online giving. Churches can also take payments for church camp, conferences, building programs and other preconfigured accounts. Churches can setup a way for members to help victims of a natural disaster like Katrina within minutes.
We have created a demo for you to have full access to the product. Please go to our Demo page to learn more.
We believe that the Lord is the giver of the increase. eGiving.com has created and assembled a variety of tools and strategies to make use of electronic giving such as the following:
Money from Credit Card/Check Card transactions are deposited into the church's account within 2-3 business days. Money from ACH (e-check) transactions take a few days to be deposited into the church's account. The reason for the delay in ACH is for verification that the funds are there, whereas Credit Cards/Check Cards have real-time validation of availability of funds
There is no charge for changing fund categories. Reports are a little different. There are several reports that you will have access to, but since we build these reports ourselves it would be unrealistic for us to say yes you can have any report you can dream up and it’s free. We will definitely provide some great reports and are very open to reports and statistic requests. We will do what we can to fill these requests.
If eGiving was at fault for a data breach, then eGiving would be liable. Only recurring transactions have the credit card or bank account information stored within our system. Only 20% of transactions were reoccurring, and thus would have credit card/bank account information stored. Also, Credit Card Companies and Merchant Account providers take a great deal of precautions to protect their accounts and provide assurance against fraud. All single transactions are processed over a 128 bit transaction encryption from the users’ computer to the merchant. Once the transaction is done, all sensitive data is immediately deleted upon processing. If a hacker did get in to the system (say they stole a high level password) they would still have to find the data, and then if they did come across the data it would look like a big pile of garbage. They would then need to decrypt this pile of garbage and if (big IF) they are able to decrypt it, they have a pile of numbers they would need to match up with names and addresses stored in a separate place before they would be able to charge a card. You can rest assured that if there is any kind of credit card fraud it will not have happened on our end.
Credit Cards/Check Cards do real time validation to ensure availability of funds. ACH does not. If an ACH request is processed and there is NSF, there is a 3.00 charge. This is charged by the ACH merchant account provider, and we do not have any control over this rate.
Yes, you will be able to download it in a CSV file, which most software packages can handle. As for the specifics of importing it into your software, you would have to ask your vendor about that.
Most Americans (approx. 80%) live on monthly budgets and their effectiveness as stewards is based on monthly faithfulness. As distracting as this culture is, electronic faithfulness is welcome by the giver and mission leaders. We see a 95% retention rate with monthly eGivers over 5 years, which could not work without eGiving.com. eGIving.com costs are minimal and our impact to planning and mission unquestionably valuable.
We would be happy to do a conference call, a webinar or a board meeting/speaker phone short presentation. We would be glad to do whatever we can to help bring early unity and focus for the mission’s sake. These tools can have a very positive effect on your organization’s funding, and early team buy-in means more rapid growth in eGiving. The two key ministry contacts between eGiving.com and your organization are your admin and leader/advancement people.
eGiving.com takes Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express (by request) and Personal Checks.

Absolutely!
