ELECTRONIC AND ONLINE GIVING:
St. Anthony Parish now offers Online Giving that is fast, secure and a convenient way to make your donations. With your authorization, your bank automatically withdraws the contribution amount you specify from your designated checking or savings account, or, if you prefer, your specified credit card will be charged. You can decide how much and/or how often to give. Simply click on the Online Giving button on our homepage.
Q: Why should I switch to Online Giving:
• Reduce the number of checks you write.
• No worries about forgetting your cash or checkbook
• Print out your own year-end statement for tax purposes.
Q: Is there any charge to me from my bank to give electronically?
No. Electronic funds transfers carry no bank fees.
Q: Is electronic giving risky?
It's less risky than writing checks or bringing cash to church. Electronic contributions cannot be lost, stolen or destroyed, and have an extremely high rate of accuracy.
Q: If I do not write checks, how do I keep my checkbook balance straight?
Since your contribution is made at a pre-established time, you simply record it in your check register on the appropriate date. Electronic contributions are recorded for you on your bank statement, as well as your online reports.
Q: What if I change bank accounts?
Log in and update your account information in the My Payment Schedule window. Each checking/savings/credit card can be changed using the edit button, deleted completely, or new accounts can be added on the right side of the screen.
Q: What if I try Online Giving and don't like it?
You can cancel your authorization by deleting your accounts and donation dates at any time. All the more reason to give it a try!
Q: How do I sign up for Online Giving?

LEAVE A LEGACY:
"You can't take it with you" does not mean "you can't leave it behind as you wish". One of our important obligations as stewards is to provide for the needs of loved ones, charities and church after our death. Consider one of these options which may assist St. Anthony Parish, and leave your legacy for many years to come.
