WSEFC’S AUTOMATED CLEARING HOUSE GIVING
Systematic Giving Made Easy!
Automated Clearing House (ACH) giving provides a simple, safe, and practical way to give your tithes and offerings. Once you sign up, your donation is transferred electronically from your bank or credit union savings or checking account directly to the church. Through electronic funds transfer using ACH, you can be assured the church receives your contributions on a steady, secure, confidential, uninterrupted basis.
CONVENIENCE FOR YOU
ACH occurs automatically, whether you are at church or away due to vacations, business, travel, weather, or illness. ACH remembers for you and you won’t have to worry about forgetting your checkbook or cash. ACH is fee-free for you. Your bank statement will list detailed account activity, and the church will list ACH gifts on your contribution statements.
CONVENIENCE FOR THE CHURCH
ACH saves us time – it’s automated, so less labor. ACH saves us money – it’s the cheapest form of electronic giving – we pay a lower transfer fee than for other forms of e-giving. ACH helps stabilize our finances – we know when your gift is coming, so we can plan better.
