New Online Giving And Text-to-Give

New Online Giving And Text-to-Give

Rocky Creek is changing the way we do online giving for tax deductible donations!  In order to streamline our giving platform we are moving to Planning Center Giving.  Planning Center Giving will be the platform through which we account for charitable contributions (100% tax deductible gifts, not payments for events or studies).  Planning Center Registrations will still be used for camps, studies, and other events.  This move will allow us to match up our Giving with our People database, how we do Check-Ins for preschoolers and children, how we track Groups, how we use Registrations for events and studies, and how we manage Resources (facilities).  If you have been giving through the eGive Platform then you will need to transition to Planning Center Giving by October 31.

You may start giving through Planning Center Giving now.  You can click this link to give through Planning Center Giving.  Or you can give through the Rocky Creek App.  Here’s a link to show you about online giving.

A new giving option will be text-to-give.  Text-to-Give lets your donors give using a simple text message. There’s no app to download and setup is easy, so it’s just a faster way to give. Text any amount to 84321 to give.  Standard message and data rates may apply.  Here’s a link to show you how to text-to-give.

There are some additional fees associated with online giving and text-to-give, but Planning Center Giving offers the option for you to cover these additional fees if you so choose.  Also, if you set up an ACH through your bank account instead of using a debit or credit card, then there are less fees associated with this type of transaction.

Thanks for your cooperation during this transition time.  If you have any questions concerning the new online giving platform, please let Beth (beth@rockycreekonline.org) know.  There is also more information on the Rocky Creek website giving page.
