Giving just got easier

After months of careful research, we are excited to announce we have a new platform for giving – Tithe.ly! We now have the opportunity to set up automated giving or send one-time gifts through our website OR through a convenient app on your phone. Simply visit stjohnskasson.org/giving or search for the “ELCA Giving Tool by Tithe.ly” app to get started.

Make the most of your gifts:

  • Select ACH/bank to incur the lowest fees.
  • Opt to “Cover card processing fees” to pay the fees and ensure your full intended amount goes directly to St. John’s.

If you haven’t participated in electronic giving in the past, now is a great time to consider setting up this option! It’s easy and secure. It also makes consistent giving one less thing to think about because Tithe.ly works even through vacations, inclement weather, and forgotten wallets. St. John’s will continue to offer envelopes for donations, but we ask that you consider electronic giving!  Giving electronically, is a tremendous time savings when counting and recording donations, it also provides the church with more reliable and steady donations.

Please take this time to consider, if you are able, to enhance your current giving. Even a small step up – such as a $5 or $10 periodic increment over time provides St. John’s the valuable support we need.

If you have any questions about the new system, council members or office staff are available to help!

Participants enrolled in our previous automated giving option will be receiving information about the changeover. Your current automated giving will end April 30, 2019.

Thank you for generosity to St. John’s. We appreciate all the ways you give so that we may live as witnesses of Jesus Christ in our community.
