Online Giving (Website)

You have been given a pledge card for 2018. When deciding to make your gifts to Topeka First UMC, you may want to consider online giving. You can choose to make your donation directly from a checking or savings account, or you can choose to use a credit or debit card. This is an easy, convenient way to fulfill your commitment to your church. To make your one-time gift, or to schedule a recurring gift, go to www.forthegoodofthecity.org. Go to the “Give Online” tab at the top of the screen. Tap the large Give Online button at the bottom of the screen.
Follow the on-screen instructions to fill in the blanks. Under “Select A Fund,” if you are fulfilling your pledge, you want to select “Oper Budget.” There are other funds you may choose. As special giving opportunities occur, the list will be updated.
You will be given the opportunity to create an account or to give as a guest.
Choose the frequency. This can be a one-time gift, or you can choose to set recurring gift. You can choose start and end dates for your gifts, therefore setting giving for 2018 is possible now.
Choose your account type, either credit/debit card, checking or savings.
The first time you choose to give online, you will need to complete your account information. There is a box you can check that reads “save for future use.”  If you check this, you will only have to enter the account information one time. It is possible to set up giving from multiple accounts.
When you have completed the screen, tap “Give” at the bottom and your gift will be submitted. You will receive an email receipt of your giving. If you set up a recurring gift, you will be sent an email receipt for each gift.
If you have any trouble with this, you are always welcome to call Tina Boles at the church office, 785-233-8100.
