FAQ’S about Donating to First Baptist Church through PayPal

Q.  Is my information safe and confidential?

A. PayPal is an online service for businesses and non-profits to accept payments and donations online. It’s a widely used and safe way for people to send money on the Internet. When you give through PayPal, the church does NOT see private information such as your debit card or bank account number.

Q.  Do I need a PayPal account to donate?

A.  No, on the secure PayPal website you can use a PayPal account if you already have one or you can use a debit or credit card. 

Q.  Are there any fees or costs to donate online?

A.  Not to you.  The full amount that you choose to donate goes to First Baptist Church and is considered a tax-deductible gift. The church pays a fee of 2.2% + $.30 for each transaction which is why we suggest that PayPal be used only for occasional donations.

Q.  How will I know my donation made it to the church?

A. You will receive a confirmation email from PayPal immediately after you complete your donation. You can keep the email as a receipt for tax purposes.  Your donation will also be entered into the financial secretary’s record-keeping system.

Q.  Can I designate how my donation is used? 

A.  Unless otherwise designated, your donation will go to support the ongoing work and ministries of the church.  If you wish to make a specific fund designation for your donation, click on:
