St. Joan of Arc parishioners can now enroll in the Faith Direct Program.
How does Faith Direct work?
This secure program works directly with your bank, in the same way as other electronic funds transfer systems you may already conduct (such as utility bills or your mortgage payment). All transactions are done electronically, debiting your bank account or credit card automatically for the amount to which you have agreed in writing. It is a hassle-free, simple solution for today's busy families.
Can any additional funds be taken from my account other than what I have authorized?
No! The Faith Direct program is strictly regulated, and only you can designate the amount of money that may be debited on a monthly basis. We will not disclose any non-public personal information except as required by law. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to safeguard your information. The Social Security Administration processes direct deposits of benefit payments for more than 18 million people each month, and not a single one has ever been lost.
When do the transactions take place?
On the fourth day of each month your account will be debited for the total weekly contribution amounts you have authorized. Your Church will receive your contribution within four business days.
How can I be sure that my gift is going to my Church?
Your monthly gift will be clearly itemized on your bank or credit card statement with the name of your Church c/o Faith Direct. Your Church will receive monthly statements indicating your support level. Your contributions to your Church via Faith Direct are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
How does my Church benefit from my participation in Faith Direct.
Your Church will see a substantial increase in net revenue, a decrease in administrative costs, and a clearer picture of cash flow for your Church's needs.
Can I stop, increase or decrease my payment at anytime?
Yes, by calling Faith Direct toll free at 1-866-507-8757 or visiting their website at www.fatihdirect.net
