Can You Be a “Zero-Fee” Monthly Donor?

We have a great need to develop a deeper, consistent group of monthly donors. We are grateful for those we currently have, but if we can grow that monthly base, we can do more, cover more territory, and share the Gospel with more children.

The comment above about “zero-fee” monthly giving is a reference to the opportunity to give to us at 100% via ACH. Many people simply refer to that as “bank draft” giving.

You see, nearly all online payment processors (like PayPal and Stripe) charge a fee each time a donation is made and the larger the donation, the larger the fee. Don’t get us wrong, we are grateful for all of the online donations that we receive. However, if you are able and willing to set up an ACH bank-to-bank monthly donation, we get 100% of your gift each month.

We are very fortunate to have a local bank that partners with us to do this. This is the process:

  • Contact our local CEF office in Jackson (not the state office in Brentwood or national headquarters in Missouri) and we will talk you through completing a form to authorize the ACH monthly draft. Call us at 731-736-2786 or email us at [email protected].
  • Here is a copy of the form that you can download to preview or complete.
  • Mail us the original, signed form and we will submit it to our bank. There is a specific process that we must follow, so you cannot mail it to them directly. Mail it to us at:
    CEF of Greater Jackson
    P.O. Box 10532
    Jackson, TN 38308

Thank you and God bless you for your willingness to share your resources with us. Your donations will allow us to share the saving Gospel message with more boys and girls in central West Tennessee and beyond. Your gifts are investments into eternity. Amen.
