At Perimeter, we believe that giving is an expression of worship and thankfulness to return to God a portion of what he has asked us to manage. While many of our members choose to participate in this act of worship during our weekend services we also offer additional giving opportunities for those that are not able or prefer not to give during the service. As well, Perimeter takes very seriously the role that God has given us to steward the financial resources of the Church. We've put together a list of frequently asked questions about giving and our accountability below. Additionally, if you have any questions you can contact Carol Wallace, and she will be happy to answer your questions.
Perimeter has a "Text to Give" tool available on your smartphone to help streamline giving. The tool is a great option for one-timing giving opportunities like disaster relief. To setup your smartphone, simply text: perimeter to 45888 and then follow the prompts.

Giving a recurring gift by check has a lower processing cost to the church. Placing a check in the offering as part of the weekly corporate worship service is the traditional and still most common way to give recurring or one time gifts. A growing number of donors give to Perimeter while taking advantage of the convenience of online banking bill paying offered through their bank. One of the advantages is you can schedule a recurring payment to tithe or offerings that currently support the ALL IN: Leveraging Our Lives Campaign. When scheduling an online bill payment it is very helpful if you would put a designation such as "ALL IN" or "Deacon's Fund" in the account number or memo area. When the bank check is received by Perimeter and there is no designation, it is considered a gift to ALL IN.
While processing a gift by check is one of the lower cost alternatives, giving by Electronic Funds Transfer (ACH) offers the lowest processing cost. ACH offers the advantage of making a recurring gift that is electronically deducted from your check or savings account by Perimeter once a month (your option of the 5th of 20th of the month) or twice a month (on the 5th and the 20th of the month). To sign up for ACH click here; log in to your My Perimeter Account and begin by choosing the designation and the amount of your gift. You then must choose the frequency of your gift, either once a month or by-weekly. You will then see the ACH button under the Payment Information. Clink the ACH button and continue to fill out your banking information. Giving by ACH is especially suited to recurring giving associated with a pledge, such as supporting an orphan, Youth or Campus Outreach staff person?s ministry.
Recurring gifts may also be set up and made by credit or debit card. If you don't already have a My Perimeter login, you will need to set one up. To sign up for giving by credit or debit card click here, log in to your My Perimeter account and begin by choosing the designation and amount of your gift. You can then choose the frequency of your gift, one-time, monthly or bi-weekly. Next go to the Payment Method and choose the type of debit or credit card you will use to set up your card information. You can choose to save your card information by clicking the Save Information box. Then you can use the saved card to make additional or future gifts. Making gifts by credit or debit card offers donor convenience and control. However, processing costs are higher than with gifts by check or Electronic Funds Transfer (ACH) due to the fees credit card processors charge the church to process transactions.
Card information is securely stored by the payment processor and is not stored on the servers at Perimeter. Bank information is stored on an encrypted data base and by our bank's ACH processing system.
