FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT ONLINE GIVING

Benefits

There are several benefits to online giving for both you and the church.

Convenience – Setting up a recurring automatic deduction is a great way to ensure that your tithe is made each month without having to remember if you have already done so or trying to send in your offering when you are out of town.

Reliability - Monthly automatic deductions can be a great solution for those that want to make sure they faithfully give each month or are managing to a monthly budget

Security - Online giving is more secure than giving with a check in that an electronic gift can't be lost or stolen. For additional information on how MVC keeps your information and contributions secure, see our security policy.

Helping MVC - Online contributions require less processing from our administrative staff since the information is logged and deposited automatically.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is it safe to give online?
Yes. In many ways giving online is safer than writing a check because an electronic gift cannot be lost or stolen. The security of the system is continually managed by Fellowship One.

Q: What types of bank accounts can I give from?
You can give online via automatic deduction from your checking account (ACH) or using Debit Cards issued through MasterCard/Visa. Bank-issued debit cards are not accepted through the Fellowship One system due to the sensitivity of securely requesting a Personal Identification Number (PIN). ACH bank drafts can be used instead for true bank debits.

Q: Are there any fees involved with giving online?
Not to you. You will not pay any fees with an online gift. In addition, online gifts are a more cost efficient way for the church to process donations.

Q: Can I make a one-time contribution?
Yes. The system allows you the option of either making a one-time contribution or setting up a recurring contribution. For a one-time contribution, you can designate that the contribution should be made immediately or, for both one-time and recurring contributions, you can schedule the contributions to come out of your bank account on the date(s) specified by you.

Q: Can I change my personal information or the amount or the frequency of my gift once I have set it up?
Yes. You can change or cancel your contribution at any time before the date of your next contribution. Simply log in to the system using your user name and password and make the necessary changes in the system.

Q: Can I designate my gift to a particular cause?
Yes, you can designate your gift to go toward the general fund or any listed designated fund.
However, each contribution can only go toward a single fund (cannot be split between funds) so you will need to setup multiple contributions if you would like to donate to multiple ministries.

Security

At MVC, we use an online database called Fellowship One. Their system allows us to provide access to your contribution records and allows you to make donations online. They provide all of the security for the system. This system is used by churches throughout the country and has been fully tested by them.

There are two aspects of security related to the system. First, Fellowship One provides data security using the latest security technology. The following statement is from their security documentation: "[the system] utilizes the most current encryption technology to maintain the security of your data. Every parameter passed in the hyperlinks is fully encrypted. Additionally, the Login module handles passwords using what is known in technical terms as salted hash. In laymen’s terms, this means it would take 50 computers (running constantly) continuously presenting password combinations four years to discover the password."

The second aspect of security relates to account creation. When you first create a new account in the system, you will be able to donate immediately, but you will not have access to any previous contribution information. Before that can happen, we must manually link your previous information to the account you created.

In order to verify the authenticity of the account request, we will ensure that all of your data matches our current records (e.g., address, phone number, and email address). If there is any question, we will contact you via email before creating the link. Since this is a manual process, we will perform these steps approximately once a week, but if you would like to speed up this process, you can send an email to finance@miamivalley.org.

When you create your account, you will determine your own login id and password. If you forget your login id or password, you can have the system email it to you by entering the email address that you used when you created your account. If you need help or cannot remember the email address you used, you can contact us at finance@miamivalley.org. You can also change your password at any time.

Please help us keep your information safe by protecting your login information. Access to sensitive personal and financial information can be gained by letting someone else use your account or by leaving the information for someone else to see. MVC will never call you to ask for your login information.

Policies

Your information is held securely by the Fellowship One system. This information will remain private and will never be given away to third parties, other than to process your scheduled contributions.

You can schedule new contributions at any time and can modify or cancel those contributions at any time prior to the date they are scheduled. Once the contribution has been processed, however, it cannot be cancelled. If you have any problems or questions related to this, please contact us at finance@miamivalley.org.
