What is WeShare?

WeShare is an Online Giving Management System that allows you to donate to your parish efficiently, effectively, and securely. It is an automated means for you to support your church financially through one-time or recurring contributions.

Can we still donate using weekly envelopes?

Absolutely. Although donating online replaces the need for weekly envelopes, it is not mandatory.

What if we feel uncomfortable not having something to physically drop into the collection basket?

Don't worry! We provide a printable form that can be put into the collection basket that says, "We lovingly made our donation through WeShare."

How do we change their personal information such as their bank account number, mailing address, or donation amount?

You can make these changes yourselves by visiting the WeShare website (details below), or by calling the parish office. You can plan their contributions for the entire year—or you can change your donation amount online whenever you like.

Which payment methods are accepted?

We accept contributions from checking accounts, savings accounts, debit cards, or major credit cards such as Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.

Do we receive receipts for our donations?

Yes, all contributors enrolled with WeShare can elect to receive receipts via e-mail.

Is WeShare safe?

Yes. We take security and privacy of both the church and its donors extremely seriously. We annually undergo an external audit to certify we are Level 1 for PCI (Payment Card Industry) Compliance. Our data center uses the latest state-of-the-art security measures resulting in an SAE 16 Certification.
