The first online transaction by credit card is up for debate, but we do know that it was roughly sometime in 1994 with the internet that we know of today. That means we are about 22 years in the making for getting setup to give online for the church.
Launching today we are introducing not just one way to give online, but five ways between mobile web, txt-2-give, desktop, email, and even from Facebook recurring weekly, monthly, or annually.
Mogiv has been a partner for many of our Harvest Bible Fellowship churches throughout the world. So you can have confidence in the security and stability of this service we've prayerfully selected.
Why do we have a new giving platform?
With technology advancing at such a rapid pace, more and more people use electronic forms of payment to pay for basic needs, make purchases and more. Young adults and families, especially, are turning to online banking to manage their finances, and almost exclusively use debit and credit cards versus checks and cash for most transactions.
To keep up with the times, and make giving more convenient to our church family, we are excited to announce the availability of online giving for you! Now, you can safely and securely give on our website, via email or text message right from your mobile device!
How does it work?
Our online and mobile giving is facilitated by Mogiv, a secure giving platform used by churches around the country. They set up the technology that enables gifts in any amount, anywhere, from any device. That allows us to spend more time fulfilling the Great Commission!
How much can I give?
Mogiv allows you to give in any amount above $1.00. There’s no maximum limit! And, you can give from a debit card, credit card, or bank account. The choice is yours!
How do I get started?
To start giving online, simply visit the site below and create your first gift. Your gift can be one-time or repeating. You can create an account or give as a guest.
How do I get a receipt for my donation?
The Mogiv system will email you a receipt for each gift that you make. You can also access a personalized, printable giving report online at anytime. All your gifts are tax deductible.
How soon will the church receive my gift?
Depending on your method of payment, it will take from two to seven business days for your gifts to arrive in our bank account. Funds are settled directly into our designated bank account.
How much does it cost me to use the Mogiv system?
The Mogiv system is free to use for givers. There are no set-up fees, and no fees charged to make a gift.
How much does it cost the church when I use the Mogiv system?
Mogiv charges competitive credit card and merchant bank processing fees (and doesn’t charge any set-up or service fees to us). Keep in mind that we also have labor and other costs associated with processing cash and check gifts. To make giving more accessible to everyone, the church is willing to pay the fees. If you’re led, you can add 1% (bank account) or 3% (credit cards) to your donation to help cover these fees. To see Mogiv’s fee structure, visit mogiv.com.
Okay, enough chit-chat, I want to get started now!
Simply visit our giving page or email/txt an amount to the following addresses. You only need to give an email address for a receipt, a password to fully setup an account which also allows you to see your yearly giving any time you'd like.
