What are the Benefits of Online Giving?

There are several benefits to online giving for both you and the church:

  • Simplicity: You will not need to remember if you gave this month or pay period, or send your offering checks when you are out of town.
  • Security: Online giving is more secure than giving with a check in that an electronic gift can’t be lost or stolen. For additional information on how GFC keeps your information and contributions secure, click here.
  • Helping Grace Fellowship Church: Online contributions require less processing from our administrative and volunteer staff since the information is logged to your donor record and deposited automatically.

MyGFC Help & FAQ

What if I forgot my email or password?

You can recover your password if you know the email account used. Please contact us if you need to know the email used for your MyGFC account.

Why can't I find someone in the directory?

The directory is an opt-in system, which means that only people who choose to be in the directory can be viewed. This allows everyone to choose their own privacy. You can add yourself to the online directory by going to the privacy settings and checking the “Include me in the church directory” box.

I've created an account and features such has groups, directory, and giving history aren't there.

If the system can’t link your MyGFC account to your database record with the church, you won’t be able to see your information quite yet. These records get linked every few days or you can contact us to have this processed sooner. This assures random website visitors can’t access your information. If this problem persists please send an email to [email protected].

Will my name be in the church directory if I do not register with MyGFC?

No, you must have a MyGFC account and check the box to be included in the church directory. If you do not have a MyGFC account you cannot access the church directory either.

Can anyone view my information if I register?

No, only people in our church who have the status of member or attendee in our database can view the directory.

We only have one email address, can we use one email for multiple family members?

No, each family member will need a separate email address to access their separate accounts.

I have followed the instructions and I can’t log in, who do I contact?

Contact the church office 859.371.7880 or [email protected]

My email address is now connected to my spouse’s MyGFC account. How do I create my own account?

MyGFC only allows an email address to be associated with one person or account. Here are the steps to change an email login:

  1. Sign-in to the account.
  2. Select Account in the top right corner.
  3. Select Change Login/Password
  4. Enter a new login email. (You may keep the password the same. )
  5. Sign out.
  6. Create a new account with your email address.

(Use the “Register” button rather just sign in since you need to create a new account.)

Why does my profile say it’s not 100% complete?

A profile is listed at 100% complete when you enter ALL the fields in under your profile. Don’t worry if you don’t hit 100%!

Is it safe to give online?

Yes. In many ways giving online is safer than writing a check because an electronic contribution cannot be lost or stolen. The security of the system is continually managed by our online provider, Fellowship One. To find out more about your security click here.

What type of bank accounts can I give from?

You can give online from your debit/credit accounts using Visa, MasterCard, or Discover Card.

Are there any fees involved with giving online?

You will not pay any fees with an online contributions. Any fees incurred are paid by GFC. However, online contributions are a more cost efficient and convenient way for the church to process donations.

Can I make a one-time contribution?

Yes. The system allows you the option of either making a one-time contribution or setting up a recurring contribution. For a one-time contribution, you can designate that the contribution should be made immediately or, for both one-time and recurring contributions, you can schedule the contributions to come out of your bank account on the date(s) specified by you.

If I want to set-up a recurring contribution, what are my options for frequency of my contribution?

For recurring contributions, you have the option of giving weekly, monthly, twice a month, or every two weeks. You may also specify the starting and ending dates for your recurring contributions.

Can I change my personal information or the amount of the frequency of my contribution once I have set it up?

Yes. You can change or cancel your contribution at any time before the date of your next scheduled contribution (once a contribution has been processed it cannot be canceled). Simply log in to the system using your user name and password and make the necessary changes in the system.

Can I review my contribution history online?

Yes. The site will allow you to view the complete history of your contributions, given either online or otherwise. Once you’ve created an account, you will be able to contribute immediately. In some cases, before you can see any past contributions, we must manually connect your online account with your previous information. This is a one-time process that usually happens within a week of creating your account. After that, you can view your giving history (online or by check) at any time.

Can I see history for other members of my household?

Yes, if you are in the system as an adult you will be able to view giving history for all members of your household. In order to view history or generate a statement for selected people in your household, select the person or people you want to display under the “Contributions for” selector and click “View”. Click the “Download Statement” link to generate a statement for the person or people in view.

Why are some contributions attributed to my household and other attributed to an individual?

All online contributions are always attributed to the individual whose MyGFC ID was used to set up and process the contribution. This is because an MyGFC ID is used for one unique person and cannot be shared among multiple people. Paper checks processed by the church are usually attributed to the household. We anticipate this difference not being an issue for married couples filing jointly since it doesn’t matter whose name is on a gift for tax deduction purposes.

For instances where you need to show an individual’s giving on a separate statement, select the person you want to display under the “Contributions for” selector and click View. Click the “Download statement” link to generate a statement for the person in view.

Will I still receive regular contributions statements from the church?

No, all user’s that have an MyGFC account can download their contribution statements at anytime.  If you would like to have a paper statement sent each year, please, click <here> to request a paper statement be sent to you each year at the end of January.

When will contributions be taken from my account?

Contributions will be taken from your specified bank account within 2 business days of the date you requested. This time frame allows time for the contribution to process through your bank and the church’s bank. If the date of your contribution falls on a weekend or a holiday, the transaction will be initiated on the next banking day.

Can I designate my contribution to a particular ministry or account?

Yes, you can designate your gift to go toward one of the following accounts:

 

<FIX>

1 – General Fund:  This is our general fund and can be used for normal tithes.  This supports the ministries, staff and general operation of our church.

2a – Missions (Cross-Cultural Workers & AoGI):  Use this fund if you want to fund a particular

2b – Missions (Short-Term Trips):  Use this fund if you want to fund a particular

3 – Special Offering:  Your contributions to this fund 

We may also add additional funds at specific times.  

How will I know that I set-up my contribution correctly?

Very shortly after submitting your contribution, you will receive an email verifying your contribution and you will see it in your giving history online.

If giving for the first time after setting up your account, you will be able to see past giving history in about a week.

I have additional questions about online giving that have not been addressed. Who can I talk to?
