FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Here is a summary of common questions – If you do not find your answer,
What Are Round Ups? In a $2.49 charge, $.51 is the roundup.
We Micro Give will calculate round ups based on credit or debit card transactions. Once a month, we’ll total up the donations and make your donation. If your donation does not meet the $8 minimum, your roundups will be rolled over into the next month.
Whole-dollar purchases (e.g. $4.00) will result in a $1.00 donation.
WHICH PARISHES CAN PARTICIPATE? Eventually, all within the Sacramento Diocese.
Currently we are piloting round up giving with a handful of Parishes. Eventually, all Parishes will be able to participate.
Which Banks and Accounts? All major US Banks.
Donors have access to all major banking institutions in the United States. On selecting their bank, donors can choose an account to use for round ups and then select the account from which they will make their donations.
Can I set a Donation Limit? Yes, set your own over $8.
You have full control over your donations. You can opt to set a monthly maximum ($8 minimum) and can suspend giving at any time. You can also choose to give the same fixed amount each month.
