New City Church has acquired a new online giving tool to better serve our members, regular attenders, and friends called Elexio Giving. The purpose of this overview is to give you a quick glance at the features and share some tips for setting up and using your new account.
Members, regular attenders, and friends of NCC can create an online giving account and guests can choose “Quick Give” for one-time donations without setting up an account.
Online giving can be accessed from any web browser or from the NCC website online giving page by clicking the “Give Now” button. You can also bookmark the direct link, which is elexiogiving.com/ncc.
The screens displayed on the right side of the above image are examples of what you will see when you click “Give Now” for the first time. If you are using a mobile phone the display is slightly different but the information you’re supplying is the same.
When you create your new online giving account, you’ll want to click “First Time?” to start the process. First time is located directly underneath the NCC church logo. The rest is easy. Just fill in your basic information, such as name, address, phone number, email address, and password. Use your proper name instead of a nickname and your email address.
If you forget your password, after your account is created, the system provides you with a “forgot password” prompt for recovering it.
We chose this system for many reasons but primarily we wanted the system to be user friendly for everyone using it. If you ever have questions about how to use the system, please reach out to us and we’ll be glad to help. Just email HELP.
Elexio Giving is Level 1 PCI Security Certified. The payment card industry has very strict standards to protect your sensitive payment information and Elexio carefully adheres to their policies and standards.
Use your account to update your payment methods, schedule future giving, set-up recurring gifts, and view online giving history.
Your online giving account is accessible from any web browser on a computer, tablet, or smart phone. Just navigate to the NCC website online giving page and click give now or bookmark the direct link, which is www.elexiogiving.com/ncc.
The payment methods your new system supports are: Electronic Check, Debit Card, Visa, MasterCard and Discover.
We are most excited to offer donations by electronic check.
In the example on the image above, you'll see "Scheduled Giving" (left side toolbar) where you can set-up automatic recurring gifts or scheduled donations.
Choosing "My Account" (under "Scheduled Giving") takes you to your account information where you can also view your online giving history.
Note: Only you online giving history is stored in Elexio Giving. Giving made by cash or paper check are stored along with your online giving in the NCC Community database. To learn more about NCC Community click HERE.
Text giving is a new option and can be useful, if you are on the run and want the added ease and convenience of quickly sending your gift.
The very first time you give by texting you will send a text to 770-766-8102 with the dollar amount and fund name of your gift. You will receive a response that will include a link to a short billing set-up. After the initial set-up you’ll just text the gift amount and fund name to the same number and you’re done. For more details on text giving, click HERE.
The following funds are available when you give online and are accessed from a drop down menu in online giving as displayed in the example above.
Note about text giving: When sending your gift by text message be sure to specify the fund name after the amount of your gift. Example: $50 Impact & City Bridges Ministries Donations. If no fund name is specified, the amount will be placed in our general fund. For details about text giving, click HERE.
