Smart Phone Giving

Stewardship -- there’s an app for that! Those who use smartphones may want to explore a more convenient option, GivePlus Church. This mobile giving app is administered by our long-time partner, Vanco. Make weekly offerings, respond to special appeals, set up a recurring donation and review your giving history -- all through your smartphone.

  • Go to the App Store or Google Play and search for the app “GivePlus”. Download it for free.
  • When you open GivePlus for the first time, you will be prompted to enter the name of the church. As you type, usually a list will appear; select “Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church” from the list. (Or, use the Find Churches Near Me feature to search for churches in your area. You may need to change your settings to give your phone permission to use your location.) After you select a church, it automatically becomes your “home” or “default” church, and will be displayed the next time you open the app.
  • Set up an account. Enter your email address (this becomes your user name) and create a password. Choose how you prefer to login in: Touch ID/Fingerprint, PIN or password. An email will be sent to you to verify your email address. Click on the link sent to you via email.
  • Choose what information to store. We accept most credit cards – for example, American Express, Visa and MasterCard. You can also use a checking or savings account. Use your phone’s camera to scan your information from your credit card, or enter it manually.
  • Enter the amount you wish to give, indicate which fund you want it to go to, and choose whether it is a one-time donation or a recurring one. Enter it, and confirm that your contribution is correct. That’s it!
