Online Giving Here

As part of the Holiday Frenzy and the desire to do something good and help out many different groups, Giving Tuesday (the day after cyber-Monday) was created a few years ago by a group of industrious individuals.  Their desire was for community, nation, and world to help others less fortunate or in need.   The Heart symbol is to note the caring that comes from sharing with others.

Green Valley United Methodist Church is part of this worldwide event and hope you see kindly to contributing any amount.  Your donations will be used to continue creating  "A PLACE FOR ALL TO BELONG AND SHARE  IN GOD'S MERCY AND GRACE".

Thank you for considering us and may you and yours have a blessed and wondeful Advent and Christmas Season.

Online giving is a safe and easy way to support the ministries of GVUMC. This system enables you to support the church by making a one-time contribution or establishing a recurring contribution.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is it safe to give online?

Yes. In many ways giving online is safer than writing a check because an electronic gift cannot be lost or stolen. The security of the system is continually managed by Fellowship One.

Q: What types of bank accounts can I give from?

At this time you can give online from your checking account.

Q: Are there any fees involved with giving online?

Not to you. You will not pay any fees with an online gift. In addition, online gifts are a more cost efficient way for the church to process donations.

Q: Can I review my donation 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 able to contribute immediately. However, for security purposes, before you can see any past contributions, we must manually connect your online account with your previous information. This is a one-time process when you initially create your account. After that, you can view your history at any time.

Q: Can I designate my gift to a particular cause?

Yes, you can designate your gift to go toward tithes and offerings or our poor and needy fund. We may also add additional causes at specific times.

For any questions, concerns or comments about the online giving system, please contact us at greenvalleychurch@gvumc.org. You will receive a response from our staff as soon as possible.

Q: What types of bank accounts can I give from?

You can give online from your bank account via an ACH transaction.

Q. Can I use a debit card?

Now the fine print...... 

Security

At GVUMC, we use an online database called Fellowship One. Their system allows us to provide access to your contribution records and allows you to make donations online. They provide all of the security for the system. This system is used by churches throughout the country and has been fully tested by them.

There are two aspects of security related to the system. First, Fellowship One provides data security using the latest security technology. The following statement is from their security documentation: "the system” utilizes the most current encryption technology to maintain the security of your data. Every parameter passed in the hyperlinks is fully encrypted. Additionally, the Login module handles passwords using what is known in technical terms as salted hash. In laymen’s terms, this means it would take 50 computers (running constantly) continuously presenting password combinations four years to discover the password."

The second aspect of security relates to account creation. When you first create a new account in the system, you will be able to donate immediately, but you will not have access to any previous contribution information. Before that can happen, we must manually link your previous information to the account you created.

In order to verify the authenticity of the account request, we will ensure that all of your data matches our current records (e.g., address, phone number, and email address). If there is any question, we will contact you via email before creating the link. Since this is a manual process, we will perform these steps approximately once a week, but if you would like to speed up this process, you can send an email to greenvalleychurch@gvumc.org.

When you create your account, you will determine your own login id and password. If you forget your login id or password, you can have the system email it to you by entering the email address that you used when you created your account. If you need help or cannot remember the email address you used, you can contact us at greenvalleychurch@gvumc.org. You can also change your password at any time.

Please help us keep your information safe by protecting your login information. Access to sensitive personal and financial information can be gained by letting someone else use your account or by leaving the information for someone else to see. GVUMC will never call you to ask for your login information.

Our Policies

Your information is held securely by the Fellowship One system. This information will remain private and will never be given away to third parties, other than to process your scheduled contributions.

You can schedule new contributions at any time and can modify or cancel those contributions at any time prior to the date they are scheduled. Once the contribution has been processed, however, it cannot be cancelled. If you have any problems or questions related to this, please contact us at    greenvalleychurch@gvumc.org.
