Giving a recurring gift by check has a lower processing cost to the church. A growing number of donors give to Perimeter while taking advantage of the convenience of online banking bill pay offered through their bank. One of the advantages is you can schedule a recurring payment to tithe or offerings that currently support Rooted to Flourish. When scheduling an online bill payment it is helpful if you would note a designation such as Rooted to Flourish 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 Rooted to Flourish.
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.
