                RE:  Web Site Info about Online Receipt Providers                          Originated:  August 2009                         


        The thrust of this Online Document is to provide some Web Site resources to your "Ministry Finance Team" on the subject of "Online Receipt Providers" -- especially those who provide the means for a Donor to use the Internet and make a donation or for an Event participate to go Online and both register and pay for their Event, etc.   

        It is also our understanding that a donor can use ACH like options for making repetitive donations -- like in a pledge setting.  A Ministry assists  a Donor use their own bank's online bill payment process  and its timing.  This way contributors maintain control over when and how much they give.  This would avoid the potentially awkward situation of people needing to contact the Ministry if they want to change their amounts or schedules. 

        Please also  GO HERE  for more information about DonaMail software providers where a Ministry maintains both their People data base information and they do their donation record keeping in the same place.  I call these packages DonaMail (please GO HERE)  for more details) and it is a concept (not a Software product) as it is a contraction of Dona)tion and Mail)ing.  A common term at Churches for such software products is "CMS - Computer Management Software/System."   Like using older versions of QuickBooks Pro (QBs) there might also be merit in using older versions of the applicable  software as acquired via www.ebay.com  

         Please remember the following Online resources are for you to check out and determine what is best for you.  We highly recommend that you use tools that we discuss here, but we are NOT
  in a position to endorse them per se.
