Customizing Your Online Giving Page

Churches can customize the appearance and options of their online giving page such as color, what funds can be given to, what payment methods they'll accept, and more. To customize these settings:

  1. Navigate to "More" > "Contributions" > "Online Giving."1
  2. Click the "Settings" button in the "Web Giving Box" in the center-left of the page.
  3. Make your changes and click "Save."
The setting options include:
Setting Description
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, add the fund into Breeze 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.
Send Notification To The email address that will receive the notification (if enabled). The list is populated from your list of users.
Email Receipts From The email address receipts will be sent from. The list is populated from your list of users.
Email Receipt The email receipt the donor receives. Use the "Mail Merge" option in the toolbar to include donation-specific information (such as donor's name, donation amount, etc).
Confirmation Page The content the donor sees on their page after they complete their donation.
Page Content

Any information you'd like displayed on the top of your online giving page.
Images should be 1111 pixels wide to cover the width of the page. 

Colors The color of your donation page.
1We'll assume you've already enabled online giving
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.

  • How can we create a specific online page for types of funds? I want to create an online giving page that gives the donors three levels to select from and one option to add their own amount. I will then add that to our website or share.

  • There is an email field on the online donation page for matching people to the profile. I found some records with matching name and email to the profile but ends up in the unassociated records. Many people using separate emails for banking and communication. Can we add the phone number on the donation page so we could call the person?

  • Hey @fondachang!

    At the moment, our Online Giving portal is limited to collecting the Email and the Physical address. You could always enable the commenting section (as explained in this article) to allow people to input their phone numbers for extra verification!

    Have a great day!

  • Hi. The pastor of our Spanish speaking congregation asked if the giving page can be made available in Spanish. I realize that I can make a webpage of my own in Spanish with a link to our Breeze online giving page, but he's asking if the online giving form itself can be made available in Spanish. Would that be an option? If so we'd still want to keep our existing one in English, so we would need two; not sure if that's a possibilty either. Thx. - Shelly @ Butler Church

    At the moment, Breeze is only available in English but we have many churches that use third-party translating extensions to help them and their members! This would be a great feature request to submit, and for more information on our Feature Request form, check out our feature request article here: Submitting Feature Requests.
