Electronic Fund Transfers

With an electronic fund transfer you can make a gift to St. Gertrude without the hassle of writing a check. You can enjoy the convenience and reliability of having your bank forward your weekly or monthly gift to St. Gertrude.

How does the program work?

The EFT program works with your bank. Transactions occur without paper and handling. Your donation is reliably sent to St. Gertrude on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis.

How do I enroll in the program?

  1. Complete the authorization form for payment by EFT and attach a voided check. (Click here for a printable authorization agreement)
  2. Sign the form and indicate the month you would like the program to commence.
  3. Return the completed form to the parish office or drop it in the offertory basket.

Can I enroll in the program for Offertory and Capital Campaign payments?

You may make your weekly Offertory gift and Campaign pledge payments through EFT. Please don't forget to use your weekly envelope (even if you use Direct Deposit)! There is a box for you to check indicating that you use this service and have your gift be a part of the sacrifice of the mass.

What happens if I switch banks?

This is a very common occurrence that is handled in one easy call to St. Gertrude. Simply request a new authorization card and return that card with the updated information. This will ensure that your gift continues without interruption.

Is it possible that more money may be taken from my account than I have authorized?

Electronic Fund Transfer, like any banking transaction, is regulated by federal agencies. You designate the amount and frequency of the transactions.

How do I change my gift amount?

Please submit a new authorization form in writing to the business manager's office.
