HOW TO GIVE
How do I give using my smart phone?
There are two ways to give using your mobile device:
- Download the Lake Sawyer app and click the give button
- Text “lakesawyer” to 77977. Click the link in response to the text.
I don’t have a smart phone. Can I still give using my phone?
Yes. Texting to give is available on all cellphones. Data fees may apply.
What forms of payment can I use with online giving?
Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover and ACH (bank account) are all accepted.
Can I set up a one-time donation?
Yes. Pushpay defaults to onetime gifts unless you specify otherwise.
Can I set up recurring donations?
Yes. To make a recurring donation through the Pushpay mobile app, select “Repeat this gift.” From your dashboard, select “Yes, set up recurring.”
When will my donation be charged to my bank account?
For contributions made by credit card, the funds will be charged to your account the next business day. For ACH (bank account) contributions, it can be between 2-4 business days before the funds are withdrawn from your bank account.
Is Pushpay secure?
Yes. No credit card details are held on your devices. Payment method details are stored on industrial grade servers where the information is then encrypted. If your device is lost, no transactions can be made without your passcode or fingerprint — which makes Pushpay more secure than using a credit card.
LOGIN & PASSWORD
Why would I set up a login and password with Pushpay?
When you create an account with Pushpay, all your information including your payment information is saved for easy access the next time you give.
Do I have to create a login with Pushpay in order to give?
No. You can give without creating a login.
Will I receive a receipt?
Yes. When a gift is made through Pushpay, you will receive an electronic receipt by email. The receipt states that your gift of ‘X’ to Lake Sawyer Church was made successfully.
Where can I see a history of my giving through Pushpay?
You can access your transactions through the Pushpay website using your login and password.
How do I get my giving statement?
Lake Sawyer Church keeps a record of all your gifts made via cash, check, and online in our church management software, CCB. You can access this record through your CCB login. You can view or print your giving statement anytime.
Do I have to pay any additional fees to give online?
No. The church incurs some minor fees, but you will not pay any fees when you give online. Giving online is a cost-efficient way for the church to process donations.
