ParishPay On-Line Giving and Tuition Processing
ParishPay is the largest religious donation and tuition payment processor in the United States. It serves St. Mark's church and school by allowing parishioners and parents to give recurring monthly gifts from their bank or credit card account.
How ParishPay Works
Start using ParishPay
How ParishPay Works [top]
Recurring monthly gifts are taken from your account on the 5th of the month (or the following business day after the 5th). Users receive monthly e-mail reminders.
You can change your amount at any time. In some cases (e.g., pew fund), a one-time gift account will be set up within ParishPay. One-time donations are taken immediately and are not part of the recurring transactions.
ParishPay provides a sheet you can print if you enjoy having something to place in the collection plate. In addition, slips are available in the Narthex to fill out to place in the collection plate.
Transaction Costs [top]
There is a fee for ParishPay. It is our hope that by allowing different methods of payment these fees will be covered by more regular giving.
In the short-term, if you would like to help St. Mark's by paying your own fee this would be appreciated. Any amount you give is tax deductible, even if you intend part of it to cover ParishPay fees. Make sure you note that part of your gift is for fees or notify Janet Pell, St. Mark's Financial Manager.
All ParishPay transactions are charged 1.5%. Transactions from credit card accounts are charged an additional 2.5%. No transaction fee exceeds 4%.
For most churches, the increase in collection more than compensates for these fees
Minimum Payments [top]
There is a minimum payment amount of $10 per month.
