How Does Monthly Giving Work?

  • Your credit card will be charged for the first time on the day that you make the donation. In future months, your credit card will be charged once each month, on the same day you made your initial gift. For example, if you sign up for monthly giving on July 15, your credit card will be charged on July 15 and then on the 15th of each month.
  • When you set up monthly giving, you will receive an email from the EFR thanking you for your gift. Each subsequent month, you will receive an email receipt from PayPal when your credit card is charged.
  • At the end of the calendar year, you will receive a summary report of your giving for tax purposes.

Benefits of Monthly Giving

  • Smaller, consistent payments are easier on your wallet.
  • Your gift renews automatically. You don’t have to do a thing!
