Once you activate your Giving account, you’re ready to start accepting gifts. Faithlife Giving provides a range of ways donors can give to your organization: via Faithlife.com, a Faithlife Site, any non-Faithlife site, a direct link, or via text. 

Faithlife.com

When you activate Faithlife Giving, a Give button is added to your church’s page on Faithlife.com. Donors can click this button to access the giving form.
