E-Giving - Donate Online With ParishPay
1. What Is ParishPay?
Church of Saint Leo the Great has joined with ParishPay, LLC to facilitate automated giving. ParishPay is a nationally respected company that specializes in electronic payment programs for Churches and Schools. ParishPay allows you to make a regular gift (weekly, monthly, or one time only) to SLG from your checking account or on a credit card. There is NO cost to you and all contributions are 100% tax-deductible.
2. How Do I Sign Up?
It's easy! Go online to our custom ParishPay and in a few minutes be completely enrolled. Recurring monthly gifts can be given on the day of your choosing. You will receive monthly email reminders to let you know about the upcoming deduction. You may use your Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover or debit card. Or, if you prefer, you may have your contribution debited directly from your checking account. You may cancel your ParishPay account at any time.
3. How Much Should I Give?
A rising tide lifts all boats. If everyone were to give just a little, our annual struggle to make Parish ends meet would diminish considerably, if not altogether. Accordingly, SLG is asking that each Parishioner contribute on a regular basis to SLG.
