We believe in the power of generosity,
what it does for the person doing the giving,
and for the purposes the the giving supports.
At 970.church we pledge to be good soil for your generosity. We exist to make it possible for people to find God and follow Jesus, and we would be grateful for you to join us in that mission. While we appreciate all donations, it is important to us that if you belong to another fellowship of believers that your tithe be given to your local church. Thank You!
Online giving is a safe and easy way to support the ministries and mission of the church. Our online giving portal enables you to make one-time or recurring contributions. It’s simple and secure.
Frequently Asked Questions – GOTO FAQ
How It Works:
970.church offers secure online giving through a cloud-based payment processing system called PushPay. Once your profile is created (it only takes a couple minutes,) you can make a donation or schedule recurring contributions. You can also login to review what you’ve given to the church at any time. Click the DONATE NOW button to get started entering your profile.
NOTICE: To ensure the deductibility of your church contributions, do not file your income tax return until you have printed your year-end giving statement from the giving portal. You may also request that the church mail you a year-end giving statement. Some of your contributions may not be tax-deductible if you file your tax return before receiving a written statement of your contributions from the church.
Your credit/debit card information is held securely by the PushPay 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 canceled. If you have any problems or questions related to this, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 970-818-9021.
Privacy & Security
At 970.church we use a cloud-based database management system called Church Community Builder (CCB) and a payment processing system called PushPay. These systems allows us to provide you access to your contribution records and allows you to make donations online. Each provides all of the security for their system. These systems are used by churches throughout the country and have been fully tested.
There are two aspects of security related to the system. First, CCB 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.”
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 link your previous giving 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.
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 email@example.com. 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. No one from the church will never contact you and ask for your login information.
