Starting in 2018 Shiloh will be using a new system called Giving from Planning Center to process online contributions, which means lower processing fees and better software and systems for managing contributions (not to mention a much simpler giving interface).

Giving also integrates with the rest of Planning Center's apps, which we are in the process of transitioning to. (If you're a volunteer at Shiloh you're already familiar with Services!)

Giving is easy to use and doesn't require any set up other than you add your payment method and set up any recurring contributions. If you use ACH Bank Transfer it's a good idea to add it now since it can take 3-5 business days to verify your account.

(If you do use ACH, thank you! That saves us a lot in fees! While we're on the subject, you can help us avoid fees altogether by u sing your bank's 'bill pay' feature to set up automatic payments.)

Click here to go to the new Giving webpage or check out the video above to see how it works.

After the New Year, Giving will be live at For 2017 contributions, please continue to use 'The Loop'.

If you'd like to read more about Giving, check out the help documentation. If you have any questions at all just reply to this email.

Thank you,
Shiloh Staff
