HOW IT WORKS
Q: How do I give online?
A: Go to www.westlight.org/give and click on "Click To Give" Once the online form appears, simply follow the easy-to-understand instructions.
Q: What payment method can I use to give online?
A: We accept debit cards and bank account transfers.
We do not accept credit cards because, we do not want you to go into debt for the sake of tithing. If this is your first time giving, feel free to utilize your debit card. This option is available for your convenience. However, if you plan on becoming a regular giver, due to the fees associated with debit card transactions, we ask that you switch to using ACH bank transfers. Bank account transfers have the lowest fees so we are able to make the most of your gift.
Q: How much does it cost for me to give online? Are there any hidden fees?
A: Other than your donation amount, there are no additional fees or costs for you to give online. In other words, the amount you select to give will be the amount transferred from your bank account. And this amount will be recognized as your donation amount.
There are certain fees that Westlight Community Church incurs to process your online donation, but we do not pass these fees on to you nor deduct them from your donation amount.
Q: Can I set up a recurring/ongoing donation?
A: Yes. You can set a recurring schedule of weekly, every two weeks, or monthly. You can also choose to make a one-time donation.
Q: How do I change my recurring giving amount?
A: Sign in and make the changes. With our current system (Planning Center Giving), all you need is your email address to log in. Once you enter the giving form page, click on the "Log In" button on the top left of your screen. Type in your email address, and submit. Check your inbox to find an email from Westlight Community Church. There is an active link in that email that will take you to your account page. This link is good for 30 minutes, so make sure you access your account page within 30 minutes of receiving that email.
