Does online giving cost Bent Tree money?

Yes, Bent Tree incurs a small fee for each online gift. Giving online is a great convenience but it does cost for each transaction. The percentage Bent Tree pays to our payment processor depends on the transaction type. Fees are the least for e-checks. Debit and credit card fees can range from 1.5% to 3.5% of the total gift, with reward cards being at the high end. You can automate your giving without fees by using your bank’s online bill pay system.

Can I use my bank's auto bill pay system?

Absolutely. Here is the information you will need to set it up: Our mailing address is 4141 International Pkwy, Carrollton, TX 75007. You can designate your gift to one or more of our funds in the account number field just like you would on the memo line if you were handwriting a check.

How will I know that my gift was set up correctly?

You will receive a confirmation email when your gift is processed. For future recurring giving, you can log in to see your information under recurring giving.

Can I change or edit a recurring gift?
