Donate to Saint Joseph Church Online
Convenient and Safe
Online Giving simplifies regular donation to Saint Joseph by automatic withdrawal from your bank account or credit card for the amount and day(s) of the month you specify. Saint Joseph uses Our Sunday Visitor (OSV) Online Giving Division, a trusted name in Catholic publications, for safe, secure giving. Account and contribution information is encrypted and stored securely offsite by OSV. No parish staff has access to parishioner account information. So, why use Online Giving?
• Regular contributions, automatically withdrawn on the date specified (weekly, monthly, every two months, quarterly, semi-annually and annually gift frequencies can be selected
• Eliminates remembering envelopes for your gifts to Saint Joseph. In addition, you can still use your envelopes with "gives electronically" checked or an envelope with cash or check.
• Parishioners may start, stop and change contributions at any time with a computer, mobile tablet or smartphone.
• Parishioners may use multiple accounts for giving, including both credit cards and bank accounts.
• Online Giving emails notification to givers that gifts will be processed and confirms that they have been processed. (No surprises)
Saint Joseph has 28 categories for giving: Collections - Adult, School Support, School Tuition, SJ Centennial Improvement Campaign, St Vincent de Paul Society, General Donation, all holy days, etc.
Helps Saint Joseph Church
Online Giving helps our parish by making the contribution more regular (i.e. when you are on vacation your contribution still occurs), complements offering envelopes, aids with counting and recording gifts, and eliminates handling of gift monies.
