Church Giving & Finances
Church Financial Giving during COVID-19
The simplest and most immediate way for your organisation to receive gifts electronically is for you to share your organisations BSB and Account Number with your members and ask them to send their gifts to your organisation’s account directly. Most banks and financial institutions offer many online methods to do this from internet banking to mobile banking apps.
We’ve put together a Faith & Giving during COVID-19 Handout you can share with your church members.
