Giving electronically is easy using the IConnect web browser function. You can create a one-time gift or a recurring gift. Funds can be sent from checking/saving accounts or from a debit/credit card.
Now, we have two additional options to give electronically for those who prefer giving from a smart phone using an App or by sending a text gift. Text gifts can only be charged to debit/credit cards, but by using the “Give+” phone app, you can use debit/credit cards or a bank account.
Give+ Phone App
The Give+ Vanco App can be downloaded from the Android Play Store or the Apple store. Once downloaded, you can select Ingomar Church and create an account by entering your email address, a password, and a payment method (checking/savings account or debit/credit card). You will need to retrieve an email notice from Vanco to complete your account set up. You can also choose to logon in the future by entering a PIN, fingerprint recognition, or your password. To avoid having to re-enter your payment method in the future, be sure to create and save your account before making a donation.
For text giving, you do not need to download an App. Simply text an amount (preceded by a dollar sign) to 412-504-7798 followed by a code to designate where you want the funds directed. For example $100 op17.
Some of the current valid codes are:
- op17 – Operating Income for 2017
- mort – Mortgage Principal reduction
- missions – General undesignated missions outreach
- beth – Bethany House
The first time you text a gift to 412-504-7798 you will be directed to a registration screen where you will put in your contact information and debit/credit card information (Note: you will not be able to use checking or savings accounts to give via text). You can set up text gifts as one-time or recurring.
Other texting keywords – You can also text the following keywords to 412-504-7798
- Edit or #Edit – if you want to edit your contact information, payment method or email
