Common Giving FAQs

Everything givers need to know about giving to Awaken Church.

We have recently changed our Giving platform to use a system started by a partnership with two ministries: KINDRED and Give.Church.

 

What is KINDRID?

KINDRID is a non-profit organization dedicated to unleashing generosity. Awaken Church partners with KINDRED for text and online giving.

What is Give.Church?

Give.Church is KINDRID’s entirely new approach to giving. They have built a unique system breaking down barriers and making giving more personal and easier than ever.

How long does it take for Awaken 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, the processing fees are paid by Awaken Church.

Is my 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 Credit / Debit card Information Secure?

Yes. All sensitive financial information is stored with bank level security. All information is encrypted and stored by our banking partner to Level 1 PCI compliant standards. Additionally, all transmission to our banking partner and on our site is 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 an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.

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.

How do I unlink my phone number from my account?

If you wish to close your account or change your phone number please send an email to our facilitating company, Give.Church, here: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

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 Awaken Church, through Give.Church. It is used exclusively for giving.
