Giving Portal Instructions and Help

Our church donation form is provided by Planning Center Giving and hosted at https://fccnc.churchcenter.com/giving

You can give a one time give simply on the portal or you can log in to access saved pay methods or your donor profile. 

Enter Donation Information

On the donation form, you can give a one-time gift, set up a recurring donation, or save payment methods to your profile.

You don't need to download a new app or create an account; simply fill out the fields, and your information will be saved to your donor profile.

Choose your Payment Method

After entering your donation information, you can choose if you'd like to give using your bank account, debit/credit card, and, on supported devices, Apple Pay.

If you've donated before, you can log in to give with a saved payment method. If this is your first time donating, or you haven't saved a payment method in the past, fill out your payment information by clicking Bank account or Debit/credit card.

  • In order to give using the Church Center mobile app or Text-to-Give, you must have at least one payment method saved to your profile.

Give with Bank Account

When giving with a bank account, keep the following in mind:

  • When you give with a bank account, the processing fees are lower than when you give with a credit card. However, the funds will take longer to get to your church (3-5 business days).
  • You will have to verify that you own the bank account.
  • When you donate using a bank account the first time, your account is saved to your donor profile, so that you won’t have to verify account ownership every time you give.
  • We do not store your bank account log in information or account number.

You can either verify your bank account instantly by logging in to your bank account (for most major banks) or verify your bank account using micro-deposits.

Once your bank account is verified, you can select it as a payment method to make a donation. However, until your bank account is verified, it will not show as an option to choose when giving.

  • Bank account (EFT) giving is not supported in Canada.

Give with Debit/Credit Card

If you choose Debit/credit card, you can give using most credit cards, including Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express.

  1. Enter your credit card number, expiration date, and CVC code.
  2. If you plan on using this card in the future, check the box to save your card to your donor profile. This is optional, but can speed up the donation process for for any future donations.
  3. Check the box if you want to cover the processing fee for the donation. This option will only appear if your church has enabled this feature. This is a US-only feature, so is not available for Canadian customers.
  4. Click Give to submit your donation.

Canadian User: While all major credit cards are supported, only a limited number of debit cards will work. Visa Debit is supported, but Interac ATM cards or any card without a 3 or 4 digit CVC code will not.

Give Using Apple Pay

You can use Apple devices (iPhones, iPads, and Safari on Mac) to donate using your credit or debit card without having to enter the full details of your card.


It's fast, simple, and more secure because it uses your devices built-in authentication system (i.e. Touch ID or Face ID) to verify the payment method.

  • On your desktop, Apple Pay only works on recent versions of Safari. On mobile, Apple Pay works on mobile Safari, which is the native web browser used by Apple devices (like iPhone and iPad).  

Donation Receipts

Once you've completed your donation, you will receive an emailed receipt with details about your donation. 

  1. Click this link to access your donor profile to manage contact information, donation history, statements, Text-to-Give settings, and payment methods.
  2. Click this link to manage your receipt and email preferences from your donor profile. From the donor profile, you can choose which email address you want donation emails sent to or opt out of donation receipt emails. 

View and Change Preferences

To view and change your receipt preferences, payment methods, or donation options or download giving history and statements, you will need to first log in to your profile.
