How does Faith Direct charge for its service?
Faith Direct receives a flat, equitable monthly fee for full program administration, including marketing, communications, account servicing, reporting and funds transfer. This fee is based on the size of your parish: there are no start-up, hidden, or cancellation fees. And, more importantly, your parish is not penalized with higher fees as your program succeeds! Additionally, Faith Direct accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. Credit/debit card transactions are assessed a transaction fee of 2.45% (VISA/MC/Discover) and 3% for AMEX. Gifts processed on a checking or savings bank account are assessed a transaction fee of 0.35% and $0.15 per item fee.
How will my parish know what our parishioners are giving?
Parish administrators have access to a robust online reporting system which provides reports detailing gift amounts and allocations. This reporting includes number of enrollees, amounts, types of gifts and dates.
