Setting Up Online Giving

Before you can use any of the features with Faith Teams Giving, you need to setup and activate Online Giving for your church.

Step-by-step instructions are below. You will need the legal information of your church (according to the IRS) and some personal information for an Owner/Legal Representative of your church.

NOTE: The financial data for your church will not be reported to the IRS for this person; this is simply for validation of your account and protection from fraudulent activity.  Also, this information is not stored within Faith Teams, and it will not be visible to anybody once the information is entered into the system. Our payment processor runs a background check to check for illegal activity and to validate the account.

Complete the 6-Steps Below to Activate and Setup Online Giving:
