Churches and Synagogues

Houses of Worship, Membership Dues, Tithe Collection, Electronic Gifts

With the economy in turmoil collecting membership dues from many congregants has become more difficult as members often choose to first pay their credit card and other major monthly financial responsibilities leaving their house of worship towards the bottom of their payment list. Churches rely upon their weekly church members to place checks or cash into the offering basket. However, a member not having a check on hand or a shortage of cash in their pocket may mean that the tithe that they desire to give just isn’t there that morning. In addition, because attendance rates may vary due to seasonal events, vacations, or poor weather, your flow of funds may also vary greatly from week to week. For the funds that have been collected each week church officials must then have the responsibility to count and record the cash, be concerned about the security of the money and physically deposit the checks in the bank.

For religious organization youth groups parents have to be concerned about giving checks or cash to their children in order to pay for different activities. Life cycle events such as weddings and funerals are large dollar amount transactions that would be more easily handled by allowing payments to be paid over several installments. Charitable gifts to your house of worship are easy to make via ACH with a simple link on your website. Sales of everything from bingo and raffle tickets to sales in the synagogue’s sisterhood store would be easier to handle if a congregant could just sign a short authorization for the funds to be deducted from their on-file checking account allowing sales when the business office is closed.

The ACH Secure Solution:

  • Members can now pay every week or month automatically via an electronic recurring ACH from their checking account.
  • The online software allows you to program in each of your members who want to pay via ACH and then set the schedule of how much and how often.
  • Imagine how much easier it is to ask a church member to automatically tithe $10 per week than to hope that they have the cash in their wallet that week.
  • Break membership payments into 10 or 12 monthly payments of $200 rather than send a bill for $2400 each July when many congregants are on vacation and can least afford to pay.
  • One time payments are simple to perform.
  • Accept payments over the phone when deadlines need to be met rather than waiting for a check to arrive in the mail.
  • ACH Secure allows members to enter their checking account information on a secure website so they don’t have to be concerned with their personal data being compromised.
  • ACH Secure charges much less than what you may be paying your merchant account provider to process credit cards so you get to keep much more of the revenue.
