I’m excited to announce a new online giving tool called RebelGive. It’s a great new way to support the ministries of Quail right on our website. Your tax deductible gifts help support 39 different missionaries and agencies locally and worldwide; outreach efforts to our community; children and adult discipleship; and many other ministries here at Quail. The RebelGive logo appears on every page of our website. Giving is safe, easy to use and will not send you to another website. Just tap on the logo and answer the questions. It all happens in dialog boxes on QLBC.org. It’s that easy.
Why are we changing online giving platforms? Besides the ease of use, the cost of the fees compared to our current provider is less. A lot less. It is estimated that in 2019 churches in America will lose $30 million in tithes and offerings due to fees from digital giving. At Quail this past fiscal year we received over $580,000 in online gifts and the church paid over $15,600 in fees. With RebelGive Quail pays a flat $100 per month fee and the small individual transaction fees are paid by the giver.
This will not change anything for the people that give by check and we will continue to provide the blue giving envelopes for those who use them. Our current giving system will be active until the end of the year, but we encourage everyone who has recurring gifts to move them to RebelGive. To stop an existing automatic gift, you will need to sign into your Realm account at www.onrealm.org/qlbc and cancel your scheduled gifts. Then the next time you give with RevelGive, you can make your gift repeat on the same day every month. We have links on our website to allow you to modify your gifts.
If you have any questions please call me in the church office week days from eight to five.
