We are please to move our online giving from PayPal to Stripe! Stripe offers multiple benefits for both our church and our generous givers and is a leading online giving platform:

  • Top-tier Security. Stripe offers industry-leading fraud prevention and is a PCI Level 1 Service Provider (most stringent certification available).
    • No card/bank account numbers are stored on the Vineyard’s database and Stripe handles all the payment data. This assures that financial information is stored only using servers that meet these high compliance standards.
  • Lower Processing Fees. 2.15% of donation amount plus 25 cents per transation for card payments or just 25 cents for ACH payments.
  • More Choices More Control. With Stripe, you can select the fund where you want your money to help, set up recurring payments, text to give, receive email receipts, manage contact information, and view your giving history.
