Additional Information

  • If you do not have a way to Log into Breeze and you do not receive the email receipts from your donation, you will need to reach out to your church administrator and ask them how to do this! 
  • If you do not see the Give Now option when you log in, you will need to reach out to a church administrator, as they should be able to make adjustments to your user to ensure you can see this! 
  • If you do not see your recurring gifts, you will need to reach out to a church administrator, as it is possible the gift has been associated under a different person in the family or the gift has not yet been associated by the church to your profile. 
  • If you set up a monthly gift to recur on the 31st of the month, the gift will process on the last day of the month regardless of whether or not there are 31 days.

  • If you need to switch a recurring gift from Credit Card to ACH, you will need to cancel the recurring gift and set up a new one.
