January 14 – May 31, 2019
You may have noticed some differences in our online donation forms. This is because we recently started working with an online fundraising platform called Qgiv, which will make giving easier for you and administration around fundraising more efficient for us. Below you’ll see a highlight of several new features we’re excited to offer.
Set Up a Recurring Payment / Pledge
While recurring payments are not new for us, Qgiv helps us simplify the process. Using our main donation form, you tell us how often you would like to make your donation and for how long, and Qgiv will automatically process those transactions.
Qgiv will also send automatic updates letting you know 1. When your card is charged, 2. If your card is declined, 3. If your card is about to expire, 4. When your recurring payment is about to end.
Manage Your Own Donor Account
Click “Create and Account” at the top of our donation form to manage your own information. You’ll be able to update your payment or contact information as needed and keep track of how much you’ve given.
Run a Fundraiser on Behalf of BPFNA ~ Bautistas por la Paz
With the Peer-to-Peer fundraising tool, we can set you up to do your own community fundraiser on behalf of BPFNA ~ Bautistas por la Paz. You’ll have your own customizable form, be able to set your own goal, invite people to be part of your “team,” see how much you’ve raised in real time with fundraising thermometers, tell your own story of why BPFNA ~ Bautistas por la Paz is important to you, share your fundraiser on social media to inspire giving, and more. Contact Allison Paksoy at [email protected] if you are interested in learning more or would like to set up a fundraiser.
Donate through Text
Text BPFNA to 50155. You’ll be asked only for the basic information needed in order to make the giving process easy and efficient on a mobile device.
Assist with Processing Fees
Qgiv offers what they call “Gift Assist,” which allows you the option to have a small percentage be added to your donation to help us with credit card processing costs. This will ensure that more funds are going to the work that matters – the work of peace rooted in justice!
We hope you’ve found this information helpful. If you have any questions, contact Allison Paksoy at [email protected]
Qgiv is only able to process donations in US dollars. However, you can still donate in Canadian dollars (click here). We are unfortunately unable to process other currencies at this time. If you live outside the US, you can still give using the Qgiv platform, just be aware your donation will be processed in US funds.
