- Navigate to "More" > "Contributions" > "Online Giving."1
- Click the "Settings" button in the "Web Giving Box" in the center-left of the page.
- Make your changes and click "Save."
|Credit/Debit/ACH (Payment Types)||You can select if you'll accept Credit Cards (debit cards included), ACH (eCheck) bank transfers or both.2|
|Funds (Can donate to)||You can select which funds show up on the online giving page. A single fund can be selected or multiple funds can be selected. If you want to add a new fund to the list, create a new Fund first and it will then show up on the list to choose from.|
|Default Fund||If giving to multiple funds, set which fund shows up as initially selected (this option only appears if giving to multiple funds).|
|Comments||If enabled, donors can leave a comment with their donation.|
|Processing Fees||If enabled, donors can choose to cover processing fees for the church in association with their donation.|
|Notifications||If enabled, the person selected will receive a notification when someone gives.|

2You are able to limit Online Giving to ACH, Credit Card or both.
If limited to only ACH, and a member has previously given via Credit Card, Breeze will save their card and they can still give from their Give Now page within their member profile with the saved card. They are unable to give on the Online Giving page with the CC, but are able to do so in their profile.
Recurring donations that were previously established with a credit card will also continue.
The Online Giving page is an external link that can be shared anywhere. The Give Now tab when logged into your Breeze account as a User or Member is an internal link. The Online Giving page which is completely customizable will display differently from the Give Now tab which cannot be customized and includes only the fields necessary for an individual submitting an online gift to your church.
You can share your newly customized giving page in many ways including embedding the giving page onto your website. See Give by Website
When a donor is giving a recurring gift to a fund that is no longer available as an option on the Online Giving Page, the recurring gift will not be altered and will continue to give towards that fund.
