Do I need to create an account before I can donate?

If you choose your credit or debit card, then your donation will be reduced by a processing fee ranging from 2.75% to 3.50% depending on the card that you use. You also have the option to increase the amount of your donation to pay the processing fee. If this is your desire, please check the appropriate box.
May I set up recurring donations as well as one-time donations?
Yes. Your online donation can be set up as either a one-time donation or you may schedule weekly or monthly donations. A calendar is provided to help you with this. You may also indicate when you want the first transaction to begin.
