Online Donations via Facebook
Facebook (FB) currently offers a way for people to make fee free donations to the church. Donations can be made with a credit card, debit card, or PayPal. 100% of all donations will be added directly to our general contribution fund. Despite the language indicating that this is a “Fundraiser by the Billing Church of Christ”, it is simply another option for making personal donations to the church.
Go to https://www.facebook.com/billingschurchofchrist/. Locate and then click on the “Donate Button”. You’ll see a form like the one to the right.
Enter the amount. Select “one-time donation” or “Monthly”. Select your preferred payment method.
Important: Unless you select otherwise, the default is for your donation to be made public to everyone on FB. If you wish your donation to be private, select the drop-down arrow, select “more options”, then select “only me”.
Am I required to have a FB account?
Yes. In order to donate, you must be signed in, and you must have a FB account.
Will I have the option to continue donating on Sunday morning?
Absolutely. This is simply an option for those who may not write checks frequently or who simply prefer the convenience of this method.
Does the church receive all of the money I donate?
Yes. Currently, there are no fees.
What are the tax implications?
When you donate through FB, they will provide you with a charitable donation receipt. That will be your only receipt for that donation. Please keep track of those receipts. Any regular contributions made directly to the church will continue to receive a charitable donation receipt at the end of the year.
If you have any questions or difficulties with the logistics of donating, please contact Craig.
If you encounter any difficulties, please let us know. User feedback is important.
 FB currently only allows a fundraiser campaign to run for 91 days. As such, it is our assumption that those who elect “monthly donations” may need to re-complete a donation form every 90 days.
