Giving

Giving online or by text is safe, secure, and convenient.  If you want to automatically give on a regular schedule, simply set up recurring donations.  For online giving login below.  For text giving text the word “Help” to 630.590.0202 for complete instructions.

Harvest accepts the following payment methods:

1.  ACH/eCheck - This is a reliable, secure bank-to-bank transfer of funds.  It is the preferred method to give since Harvest pays no percentage fee for this service.  Have your bank account and routing number available to set-up this giving.

2.  Debit Card - Harvest pays approximately $1.50 for every $100 given.  If you would like to cover this cost, you may do so by simply adding the amount of the fee to the gift.  For example if you would like to give $500, you may choose to add $7.50 (5 x $1.50) to the gift for a total of $507.50.

3.  Credit Card - This is the most expensive way to give since Harvest pays approximately $3.00 for every $100 given.  If you would like to cover this cost, you may do so by simply adding the amount of the fee to the gift.  For example if you would like to give $500, you may choose to add $15.00 (5 x $3.00) to the gift for a total of $515.00.

Offering Envelopes

Personalized offering envelopes can be mailed to your home monthly free of charge.  To subscribe contact the church office.

Bill Pay

Most banks offer an online bill payment service that will issue checks thru the mail.  Harvest does not recommend this method of giving because it lacks the security and speed of online giving, and it costs additional in-house processing expense.

Giving Statements

Online giving is credited to the individual, and giving in the offering plate is most often credited to the families’ head-of-household.  For example let's assume the family Jack & Jill Smith give by check in the offering plate.  That contribution will be recorded under the head-of-household, Jack Smith.  Now let's assume that Jill Smith decides to give online.  The online contribution will be recorded to Jill Smith.  Jill can view & download giving statements specifically related to her individual online giving, but she cannot see family contributions given in the offering plate because they have been recorded to the families’ head-of-household, Jack.  Jack needs his own online account to view those contributions.  The two statements together represent the total giving for the family.  To avoid the above example, often families will give online using a shared account with a shared email address and password.
