Special Announcement: We are transitioning to a giving platform called FinchGive over the next number of weeks for our online giving. We will not fully transition off the City, our current giving platform, until we have helped everyone transition over. We have been using a platform called The City for the last 6+ years, but their giving platform is no longer cost competitive.
We also no longer use The City for church-wide communication and planning events because it has not been updated and is too cumbersome and costly.
The FinchGive platform will be embedded into our website at christchurchsf.org/give
. It is very quick to set up an account for recurring giving if you would like to do so. FinchGive will save us about 1.5% of our total online giving as well as about $1,200 a year in additional fees associated with The City. FinchGive is also maintained by our outside accounting firm Finch & Company, so it will be more efficient for Finch to manage our finances.
Since about half of our giving is done online, we are making this move because we believe it is better stewardship of the resources God has called us to steward. If you would like to know more about how Christ Church views Financial Stewardship there is a handout
on the Resource Table in the lobby.
We are grateful for the generous giving of this congregation and for the many ways that has enabled us to serve our church, this city, and our international ministry partners.
