Online Giving

We have an online option for contributing to the ministry of Oakbrook Church. Click here to be redirected to Vanco Services, the church’s secure online giving vendor.





 With Vanco Services, you can:

• Make one-time donations or schedule ongoing support that fits your lifestyle.

• Edit or delete any scheduled donation at any time.

 

Benefits of Online Giving:

1. You’re fulfilling your good intentions. Most of us want to give regularly but busyness, absences and distractions frustrate our good intentions.

2. You will simplify your life by giving automatically on the schedule and date you decide. No writing a check, remembering to bring it, or sending it to church if you miss a Sunday.

3. You will be helping the church by making record keeping much easier and income more consistent.

4. You are taking a step of faith by deciding in advance to faithfully give.


Frequently Asked Questions:

Q – I click on the link and nothing happens; what’s wrong?

A – When you click on the link, it should bring you to Oakbrook's giving page at Vanco Services. If you are using a pop-up blocker, this (in rare cases) might not work. The pop-up blocker isn't allowing it. Most tools will allow you to permit pop-ups on a specific website. In order to use Vanco Services, you will need to allow pop-ups within Oakbrook’s website.

 

Q – Are electronic contributions risky?

A – No. An electronic contribution is safer than writing a check and it can’t be lost, stolen or destroyed in the mail. Electronic transactions are required to have your authorization before any money can be deducted. When you sign up for Vanco Services, you are only giving information that is already printed on your check. National laws, rules, and guidelines govern all Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) transactions. Over four billion EFT transactions are processed annually in the United States.

 

Q – Is there any charge to me from my bank to give online?

A – No. Electronic funds transfers carry no bank fees and this service is free to you.

 

 

Q – Is it easy to change my amounts or to stop giving online?

A – Yes, simply use the same process you used to sign up for online giving. It's quick and almost instant.

 

Q – How will I receive a receipt for my Vanco Services contributions?

A – You will receive the following:

1. A general e-mail reminder from Vanco thanking you for giving to Oakbrook Church each time your love gift is posted.

2. Your bank statement will include an itemized list of automatic gifts given from your account.

3. Oakbrook will continue to provide you with a personal statement for your tax records.
