LCG Taking Donations Online (2006)

From the April 27, 2006 Weekly Update:
In this Internet Age, we often receive requests from members, co-workers and donors about making contributions to the Work online. To accomplish this, there have been a number of obstacles to overcome, but by working with Bank of America over a period of several months, we have been able to make this new service possible. Online donations can now be made on the www.tomorrowsworld.org, www.lcg.org and www.cogl.org websites. This service became operational on our websites starting on Sunday, April 9, 2006.

For those wishing to use this method of making contributions to the Church, please carefully read the following information which is found on the www.cogl.org website: “Many members and co-workers have asked to be able to make contributions on line. In response to these requests, we have set up procedures to make it possible to allow on line donations. Please click on the link and follow the instructions.

“Please note that we have made it possible for contributors to make donations to the church by using a credit card and Electronic Funds Transfer. We ask our members and co-workers to refrain from using credit cards for donations, since the credit card companies make a charge of 2.5 to 3% to the church for the service. We ask that members and coworkers use the EFT or Electronic Funds Transfer function by providing their bank routing number (found on the bottom edge of their paper checks) when setting up the account on line. Using this routing number allows for an electronic transfer of funds from the contributor’s account into the church’s account with only a very nominal fee being paid by the church. We hope you enjoy this service and that it serves you well.” Also note that donations by regular mail are still welcomed. Using either method, your donations will be gratefully acknowledged and may be tax deductible.—Davy Crockett
