CREDIT/DEBIT CARD and ELECTRONIC TRANSFERS GIVING and DONATIONS
Dear Parishioners and Friends. We have been encouraged by Financial Department of Archdiocese of Chicago to consider using the credit/debit cards and electronic transfers for regular and special contributions.
The Archdiocese has recognized that in today’s digital age, more than sixty percent of people handle their finances through the use of electronic transactions. To provide a variety of ways for all members of parishes communities to continue to be faithful in their giving, Archdiocese together with some trusted companies created a special program called GiveCentral.
How its work:
The program allows parishioners to give to the church in the same ways as they are paying the rest of their bills, shopping or donating outside of the church. GiveCentral.org is a secure online system where Parishioners can create individual giving profiles with payment options including direct debit (ACH), credit and debit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover). Every transaction you make is securely recorded and saved in your own payment history. You can enroll to the program and set up your contributions by yourself from any computer with internet access or you can come to the Parish office and we will do it for you. You can set up your donation in a very flexible way: you can set up weekly/be-weekly/monthly contribution and special collections once for year or even for longer or you can choose also shorter period of time. Then your donation will be automatically charged from your bank account or debit/credit card.
Thru this you will have the ability to set-up recurring payments on flexible schedules along with 24/7 online access to a donation page By choosing giving electronically with long time, you save your Parish both time and money. Your regular gifts can be made consistently and easily as you continue to support your Catholic community.
Contributions can also be made on a one-time basis without creating a giving profile. GiveCentral.org provides the security, ease and access you need to be faithful to your giving commitments even if you cannot be present at your Parish.
GiveCentral does not share any of your information with anyone besides our Parish. St. Rosalie parish is given access to your contact information so that they can acknowledge your generosity and keep you apprised of how your donation is being put to use.
Either Parish or GiveCentral are not authorized to share that information with other parties.
Benefits For You:
– Increased options and accessibility for giving

– Keep your gifts secure
Benefits For Your Parish:
– Saves money on envelopes and postage
– Helps predict cash flow for budgeting
– Cost-effective solution for online payments
– Better collection of payment history for tax purposes
The Village of Harwood Heights is working closely with Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD) to reduce flooding in our community and create a Stormwater Management Master Plan. The project team seeks to better understand residents’ preferences and identify additional solutions.
As a resident, you have the opportunity to make a difference in how our community addresses these problems. Please fill out the survey at http://svy.mk/1FiDxWt and help us to complete an important step in curtailing flooding. The survey will run from May 15 to June 15. Thank you for your participation. A second survey that will focus on flooding solutions and implementation will be sent out this fall.
