Online Giving FAQs

Is my giving information secure?
Absolutely. Any personal or financial information you enter is encrypted using SSL security – the same state-of-the-art security measures used by online retailers, banks, and other financial institutions.

What payment methods do you accept?
We accept donations from credit and debit cards as well as your bank account. While we are happy to accept your donation by any means, bank account donations cost less, allowing more of your gift to go towards ministry.

Do I need to create an account?
No. However, we recommend creating one so you can view your online giving history. Also, you will need to create an account if you would like to set up recurring donations.

Will I receive a receipt when I give online?
You will receive an email acknowledgement of your donation. We recommend creating an account so you can view all your online giving history. We are required by law to receipt every individual contribution over $250 for your tax records. We do so in the month of January for all of your donations given in the prior calendar year. However, we do keep a record of all donations, no matter the amount.

Is there a minimum or maximum I can give online?
No. However, for very large gifts, we recommend you contact us to ensure your gift is processed in a timely fashion. Our internal giving security can flag large donations for security reasons.

What is Westside's control of funds policy?
We make every effort to honor a donor's designation whenever the designation is in line with the church’s ministry purpose. However, Westside Bible Fellowship has exclusive control and discretion as to the use of all contributions, and we are not bound to honor the recommendations of the donors nor will donors be able to recover a contribution because we failed to honor the donor’s designation. This policy is required in order to make your contributions tax deductible. If you have concerns about this policy, please contact us and discuss your proposed contribution before making it.
