How long does it take for my church to receive my gift?
It usually takes about 2-3 days between the time you give and when it appears in your church's bank account.
Does it cost me anything?
Other than standard text messaging and data rates, there aren't any fees!
Is my personal information sent in a text message?
We never send any personal or financial information via text message. We simply facilitate giving. Your personal and financial information is always encrypted and stored securely.
Is my card and bank account information secure?
Yes, absolutely. All sensitive financial information is stored with bank level security. All information is secured with 256 AES encryption and stored by our banking partner to Level 1 PCI compliance standards. Additionally, all transmissions to our banking partner and on our site are via an encrypted HTTPS connection.
How will my phone number be used?
Your phone number will never be sold, traded, or given out to third parties. You will only be texted to confirm your giving and receive responses to other requests you make.
How will I know when my credit card is charged?
Anytime your card is charged you will receive both an email and a text message confirmation from our system.
What if I accidentally type the wrong amount?
When you make a gift, you will receive a text confirmation that re-states the amount given. If you made a mistake, you can respond with the word "REFUND" within the first 15 minutes and you will not be charged. After 15 minutes, you can send us an email, and we'll contact your church for approval to process your refund. Learn more.
Is it case sensitive? Do I have to put a $ symbol?
Nope! Gifts will work as 100 or $100 or $100.00 or 100.00 etc. Any text you enter is not case-sensitive. We also recommend double-checking the amount before sending your text.
Can I designate my gift to a specific fund?
Yes! If you're giving via text, you'll simply send your gift amount followed by the fund keyword to your church's giving number. For example, "$100 Missions."
If you don't know which fund keywords are available, send KEYWORD to your church's giving number.
Through giving online, you'll see a dropdown menu of your church's available fund designations!
How do I unlink my phone number from Kindrid Giving?
If you wish close your account or change your phone number please send us an email.
How do I edit my information?
Simply text the word "EDIT" to your church's Giving Number and you'll be given a link to your Account Settings page.
What is the phone number I text and whose is it?
The phone number you are texting is a secure number that belongs to your church, through Kindrid Giving. It is used exclusively for giving.
