Hello Everyone,

To those of you who donate to the church, we are so grateful. We want to make you aware of the ins and outs of our current giving process. We accept electronic gifts, via Credit, Debit or ACH (i.e., Bank Account and Routing numbers). We want to encourage those of you giving via Credit or Debit to review your giving settings. When giving via Card (whether Debit or Credit) there is a 3% processing fee that Columbine is charged. So, 3% of your donation is going to this fee. If you donate via ACH, there is no fee. If you wish to change your giving to ACH, contact Linda.

Checks still work fine, and also avoid the 3% charge.

If you wish to remain giving via Credit or Debit, there is now an option on our website giving, that lets you opt into paying the extra 3% yourself. There is a checkbox where you can cover the processing fee instead of that cost being passed on to CUC. We kindly ask that you check this box if you give via Credit or Debit. If you have questions on how to do this, contact Linda.

We have switched our automated giving over to Realm. Realm Giving is on our website, if you click GIVE, and then GIVE NOW. Formerly we had processed automated giving by manually handling your ACH, Credit, or Debit information. We have chosen to switch to Realm as it is more secure and easier for all parties.

If you have questions, please call or email Linda.

Thank you so much for your generous support of CUC,

Natalie Bowdish
