For those members who in the past already have asked for and received a unique, individual Donor Identification number (Donor ID or DID), we encourage and recommend for them to use their DID when making an e-offering. By doing so, their e-offering will be automatically credited to their home congregation unless specified differently by them during the e-offering process.
The new e-offering service provides the following practical advantages to the donor:
- Your offering is submitted immediately without the possibility of a check being misplaced or lost in the mail.
- The processing of your offering receipts, in particular for Thanksgiving, will on average start one week earlier than if the offering is put into the offering box.
- There is no need for paper checks anymore; members have told us in many of their inquiries that their offering check is the last paper check they are writing.
- Upon completion of your offering you will receive a temporary receipt from our administrative partner. This receipt is fully acceptable for tax purposes, in particular for offerings under $250. For offerings over $250 you will continue to receive a formal receipt from the church as in the past.
Should you have any further questions about this new service please feel free to contact the team in the Chicago office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
