Pre-Authorized Debit, or PAD, is the easiest and most effective way to automate your giving. Once it is set up, you may update your giving at any time by simply contacting the Circle Drive Church office. Plus, almost 100% of your gift goes to the ministries of Circle Drive Church because there are very minimal processing fees.
To sign-up, download the PAD (Pre-Authorized Debit) setup form and mail the completed form to the Circle Drive Alliance Church office, or drop it off at the Information Desk on Sunday, to have your giving automatically deducted from your checking or savings account. Complete instructions are on the form.
Why is this preferred?
- Regularity, control – once it’s set up it happens at the same time every month. You can predict when it will come out of your account, as well as ensuring that no matter what happens to your schedule, your giving will still happen regularly.
- Reduced operating costs – PAD reduces costs associated with paper-based payment processing, such as postage, cheque and envelope costs.
- Time savings – PAD also reduces time spent mailing, reconciling, processing and depositing payments.
- Improved security – PAD reduces the risk of lost, stolen or forged cheques.
