Realm Tips | Online Giving
by First Church
Going forward, all electronic giving will happen on Realm.
How to Give
There are a few ways to give online at First Church. The first way is by following our link over on the giving page. This will open a new window to giving on Realm. From there, you can make your gift with a valid email address and payment information. If you are already in the Realm database, the amount will automatically be recorded to your account.
The second way to give is by text. If you text the phrase “Give236” to the number 73256, you’ll be directed to a giving portal to enter your information and make your gift. If your email address matches what we have on record, the amount will be added to your records on Realm.
About Your Records
You always have access to your own records. In order to retrieve them, you must first create a Realm account. From there, you can view your giving history as well as print them out for your own record keeping or tax purposes.
About Recurring Gifts
With Realm, you can set up recurring gifts so you never miss an offering even if you miss a service. To set up recurring giving, you first need to create a Realm account with a unique email address and password. Once that’s been created, you can select GIVE from the main menu and set things up from there.
If you already have recurring giving set up through our previous EFT system, we’d like to work with you in converting your account over to Realm. You can easily do this yourself – and if you do, be sure to let us know so we can cancel your EFT account. If you are unsure how to proceed, we’d be happy to assist.
