Tips

The Online Giving features are very flexible.  Here are some possible features that you may wish to use when scheduling your gifts.


Schedule the usual three monthly collections at the same time.


Since we know that there are the the same three monthly collections every month (Maintenance, Youth and LAMB House/Local Charities) and the week these collections occur,  we can streamline our gift giving for these collections by using the monthly recurring feature.  Follow these steps:


1. Select "Give a New Gift".


2. Scroll down the gift list to Charity-Social Concerns.  Remember you can move the cursor over the small circle containing the letter i to make sure this is LAMB House/Local Charities.


3. Select Recurring under Select Gift Type.


4. Enter your recurring payment amount.


5. Change Weekly to Monthly.


6. Since LAMB House/Local Charities are collected on the 3rd Sunday, select a date falling in the 3rd week of the month.


7. Select your account.


8. Scroll down the list to Maintenance Fund and repeat the process.  This time select a date falling in the 1st week of the month.


9. Scroll down the list to Youth and repeat the process.  This time select a date falling in the 2nd week of the month.


10. Select Next and continue the finishing process as you have done in the past.


You have now scheduled all three of these collections every month.


Note: If your funds are available once a month, you may wish to schedule all three of these collections for the same date.


Change banks or an anticipated funding issue.


There may be cases when your account where funds are withdrawn changes or funds may not be available for a while.  Instead of cancelling your gift and restarting it again, you can suspend the gift for a while by following these steps:


1. From the Main Menu, select "My Active Online Giving".


2. Go to the gift you want to suspend and select the gift or the pencil to the right.


3. In the Gift Details box that is displayed, select Suspended.


4. Select Submit and follow the usual steps.


5. Repeat this process if you want to suspend more than one gift.


Restart a suspended gift.


1. From the Main Menu, select "My Active Online Giving".


2. Note the gifts you have suspended under the status column.


3. Go to the gift you want to activate and select the gift or the pencil to the right.


4. In the Gift Details box that is displayed, select Active.


5. Select Submit and follow the usual steps.


6. Repeat this process if you want to activate more than one gift.
