Online Giving at Saint Patrick's
Giving a one-time gift and/or paying your annual pledge at Saint Patrick’s is easy with all the giving options available. Your preference may be to drop your check or envelope in the plate on Sunday mornings, but during this time when we aren’t able to be together in-person for worship, online and electronic options make giving safe and easy.
If you would like to make a one-time gift to Saint Patrick’s, either to fulfill a pledge, or for something special, you can do so by check, cash, stock donations, a credit/debit card, electronic funds, or text giving. If you wish to donate electronically a one-time gift, click here.
The easiest way to donate stock to the church is to have the transfer handled by your broker or the company that holds the stock in safekeeping. To donate stock, please email our Bookkeeper, Kathryn Walters.
Saint Patrick’s offers several options for giving electronically, outlined below. Electronic giving offers parishioners an easy and consistent way to make their pledge payments. It also benefits the church with a more regular income throughout the year and reduces processing costs overall.
Our online system is secure and with any of these electronic payment methods, you can increase, decrease, or cancel your payments at any time.
Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)
Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) transfers your donation directly from your checking or savings account by entering your bank or credit union routing number and account number (found on the bottom of a check). Monthly payments offer the best balance of steady income and lowest costs, but Saint Patrick’s is happy to offer annually, quarterly, bi-monthly and many other options for payment frequency. If you’re going to give electronically, this is the best way to make sure your entire gift goes directly to Saint Patrick’s.
We accept most major Credit/Debit cards for recurring payments, too. However, these payments cost Saint Patrick’s about 3% in processing fees. You may have a credit card that allows you to earn cash back or reward points such as frequent flier miles on credit card payments, which makes this a more convenient method for you.
To set up both EFT and/or Credit/Debit Card payments download the Electronic Funds Transfer and Credit/Debit Card Authorization here, and mail it to:

Saint Patrick’s also offers the convenience of text-giving. If you would like to contribute to the church using this method, text the amount you would like to donate to (805) 600-5029. This method requires you to set-up an account on you first payment, but afterwards, making your payment is as easy as sending a text.
