Giving

We greatly appreciate the generosity that our parishioners show St. Jude through their tithing. It helps us in many ways, including running the facilities, staffing, community outreach, and a whole lot more!


Through ParishSOFT, Online Giving, you can make all of your contributions to St. Jude via automatic payment from your checking account or credit/debit card – just as you may do now with your mortgage, household bills, and other monthly payments.  This is a great way to simplify your giving – and it’s the most cost-effective, environmentally-friendly way for us to receive your gifts.

To make a secure, one-time, or recurring gift, click the button and follow the simple instructions!

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/debit cards as well as your Bank Account (our recommendation). While we’re happy to accept your donation by any means, Bank Account donations cost significantly less, allowing more of your gift to go towards ministry.

Do I need to Create an Account?

No. That said, we do recommend creating one so that you can view your Online Giving history. Also, you will be asked to create an account if you’d like to setup recurring donations.

Will I Receive a Receipt When I Give Online?

Yes. You will be emailed a donation receipt each time you give. Again, we recommend creating an account so you can view all your Online Giving history.

Is there a Fee?

No. Not to the donor. There is a cost for the program to the parish. A donor can help offset that by checking the box to add a small percent to the donation to help cover the cost. The benefits of Online Giving with a more consistent giving, outweigh the cost.

Must I use Online Giving to donate to St. Jude?

No. You can still use the weekly envelope and pay by cash or check.

Will I still get a year end giving statement from the Parish?

Yes.
