Get Started Giving to Your Church

Faithlife Giving makes it easy to give to your church, set up recurring gifts, and track your giving.


Find the Giving Form 

With Faithlife Giving, churches can accept gifts on their website, on, via a direct link, or by using text to give. Your church will let you know which of these options they’ve implemented. The giving form is the same, regardless of where it appears.


Fill Out the Giving Form

  1. Clicking Give opens the giving form. You can enter the amount you want to give, as well as designate whether you want your gift to go to one or more specific funds by clicking Add or change funds. By default, your gift is applied to your church’s default giving fund unless you change the designation.



  1. Click Next. If you’re not logged in (with a Faithlife account), the form will prompt you to provide an email address in order to send you a receipt for your gift.

  2. If you’re giving for the first time, the form will prompt you to add a payment method. You can give via a credit card or bank account. All major credit cards are accepted, including Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover.  You can always change your preferred payment method.



Note: All supplied credit card information is transmitted securely (via SSL) and encrypted to ensure compliance with data protection regulations. Please see our privacy policy for more information. 

  1. If you are logged in (with a Faithlife account), you can choose to make your gift recurring by checking the box beside Make this gift recurring. Identify the frequency of your contribution. Recurring gifts can be scheduled on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis. You can always adjust recurring gifts from the Giving portal on



  1. Finalize your gift by clicking Give. You will receive an email confirmation with an attached receipt.
