A special gift is the same as a one-time gift; a gift that is not recurring.

Giving a regular monthly amount allows Hope Community Church to plan ahead.  A budget allows us to plan with consideration our expected financial resources. 

The terms “automatic gift” and “recurring gift” are often used interchangeably, but they can carry slightly different meanings depending on the context. Let’s break down the distinctions:

  1. Automatic Gift:
    • An automatic gift typically refers to a donation that is processed automatically without the donor having to initiate the transaction each time.
    • This can involve setting up an automatic payment or direct debit from the donor’s bank account or credit card.
    • The donation is processed at regular intervals (e.g., monthly, quarterly, or annually) based on a schedule established by the donor.
  2. Recurring Gift:
    • A recurring gift is similar to an automatic gift in that it involves regular, ongoing donations.
    • The term “recurring” emphasizes the repetitive nature of the donation, indicating that it happens repeatedly at specified intervals.
    • Recurring gifts can be set up to occur automatically through various channels, such as online platforms, direct bank transfers, or credit card transactions.

In summary, while the terms are often used interchangeably, “automatic gift” focuses on the automated processing of the donation, while “recurring gift” emphasizes the repetitive nature of the donation, which may or may not involve automated processing.

In practical terms, when people talk about setting up automatic or recurring donations to a church, they usually mean the same thing – a regular, ongoing contribution that is processed automatically at predetermined intervals.

Giving a regular monthly amount allows Hope Community Church to plan ahead while accounting for its expected financial resources.

LifeLink is the automatic giving service provided by Reliant that transfers your gift on the schedule you choose. Giving is via your bank account or your credit or debit card (e.g., VISA or Mastercard).
