Our Sunday Visitor Announces New Online Giving Features

Upgrade Offers Convenient Direct Donation, Ease of Use, Improved Reports

HUNTINGTON, IN - Our Sunday Visitor Offertory Solutions announces the addition of important new features to its popular Online Giving platform. These features include the Direct Donate function, a Pledge Calculator, an overall easier-to-use interface, and consolidated reports.

The Direct Donate function allows donors to quickly and easily contribute to the fund of their choice. “Users often want their contribution to be applied towards a specific fund or cause,” says Eileen Pecoraro, Electronic Products Manager. “The new Direct Donate function makes it quick and easy, especially for mobile users.” The Online Giving platform is mobile responsive and is easily viewable on smartphones, tablets, and laptop or desktop computers.

The new Pledge Calculator allows users to easily schedule pledges or fixed installment payments. This is particularly useful for campaigns such as private funding for school tuition and special Diocesan funds.

In addition, the new user interface gives registered users a more streamlined way to update or change a gift, update payment information, or modify their current giving.

Of particular interest to administrators will be the enhanced reporting options. Administrators will now be able to view consolidated reports, run new and active not-giving reports, and review reconciliation reports using condensed or expanded fields. According to June Beers, Business Manager at St. George Catholic Church in Newnan, Georgia, “What I like about the new version of the reconciliation reports is that they’re condensed and I can still open up the funds. It is also a great function for our Holy Day collections.”

With Online Giving, Our Sunday Visitor employs the latest and most current security standards for online transactions. Donors and administrators do not need to worry about lost checks, misplaced funds, or having users’ personal information compromised. The Online Giving platform does not require any special software – all that is needed is a reliable internet connection.
