Stripe Giving

Stripe = A new processor for online giving at Calvary Fellowship

As technology continues to improve, our options for database management and organization have also greatly improved.  At the beginning of the year, we made a switch in our database platform to Planning Center Online.  You may be familiar with the name Planning Center as we have used their platform to schedule Sunday morning serving for many years now.  This change allows us to make internal and external improvements in database management, children’s check-in and donation tracking.

As a next step, we have changed our online giving processor to integrate with Planning Center.  For years we have used PayPal to process online transactions, but with our new platform, we realize this is no longer the most efficient way for online giving.  Stripe is fully integrated with Planning Center Online and cuts down on a great deal of back end work for us, thus making us better stewards of your tithes and offerings.  It also allows you more giving options than before, which you will see in the coming weeks as we integrate Text-to-Give and fund giving into our daily operations.  That being said, we are now moving all online giving over to Stripe.

Stripe has been around since 2011 and has been growing in the online payment marketplace.  You can find out more about Stripe here and their privacy policy here.

We want to make sure that you know that our commitment to stewarding your resources and your security during this switch is a priority, and if you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.
