What’s the best way to give?
We often get asked whether it’s preferable to give by cash/check, credit/debit card, or bank transfer/ACH. While we are happy to accept donations using whatever means is most convenient for you, our lowest processing costs come from cash/check (with no processing costs) and bank transfer/ACH (with a flat rate of $0.25 per transaction regardless of amount). Credit/debit card transactions incur a transaction fee of 2.15% + $0.30.
If you’d like to ensure that 100% of your donation goes toward Wesley’s mission and ministry, when donating by credit/debit card or ACH our online giving system provides the option to increase your donation to cover these processing fees. If you have questions about these fees, please contact email@example.com.
