Frequently asked questions
I made a credit card donation. Why don’t I see it on my credit card statement?
Often it is because not all the asterisk * information fields were filled out or the Captcha “I’m not a robot” box was not checked. If your credit card transaction was successfully processed, you will receive a donation receipt. If all of these steps were followed and you are still not seeing it on your statement, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help you.
How do I make sure that my contribution will be for my sector?
If you are giving by credit card, make sure you answer the question, “Do you want your donation to go towards a specific location?”
If you are giving by online bill pay or mail-in check, make sure you include your sector in the memo section.
For PayPal Giving Fund, make sure you uncheck the anonymous box. We will be able to determine what sector you are in. If you prefer, you can also contact email@example.com to let us know. PayPal Giving Fund does not offer charities the ability to specify where the donation is going.
Can I send my contribution into the church and how will I know that BACC received it?
Yes. You can mail your contribution to the following address:
Bay Area Christian Church
2479 E. Bayshore Road, Suite 170
Palo Alto, California 94303
Make sure you include your sector in the memo section. You can then contact firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm that we received your contribution.
What is online bill pay and how do I set that up?
Most banks have an online bill pay service. Go to your bank’s online bill pay, enter the church’s name (Bay Area Christian Church) and the address:
2479 E. Bayshore Road, Suite 170, Palo Alto, California 94303.
Make sure you indicate your sector in the memo section. Generally, online bill pay takes 5-7 days to process.
What is the difference between the PayPal Giving Fund and credit card donation and which is better?
The PayPal Giving Fund is a service provided by PayPal for charities to receive donations. Bay Area Christian Church is a registered 501(c)(3) public charity with the PayPal Giving Fund. The benefits of the PayPal Giving Fund are no transaction fees and a receipt is given when a donation is made. You will need a PayPal account to use this service.
You can also give using your credit card on our website at bacc.cc/give. It works like any other typical credit card transaction. Make sure you fill out all the required fields and check the Captcha – “I’m not a robot” box. Once your credit card donation is processed, you will receive a receipt.
We have no preference between the PayPal Giving Fund and credit card donation. However, if you would like to avoid credit card transaction fees, you can use the PayPal Giving Fund.
