Recurring Gifts


Automate your giving to Emmaus by establishing recurring monthly gifts via ACH direct debit or credit card.

ACH Direct Debit

Give directly from your bank account without needing to send in a check each month. There are no fees associated with ACH gifts, and there's no need to contact us when you get a new credit card. Monthly ACH gifts are a great option to give regularly without needing to take future action! 

Gifts are processed on the 20th of each month (or next banking day if the 20th is a Sunday or holiday). Recurring gifts will continue monthly until we are notified in writing of a change. You may change or cancel your recurring gift at any time; see below for details.

Receipts: 
You will receive an acknowledgement when first establishing your recurring ACH gift. Then, gift receipts are issued in January for the prior calendar year as an annual consolidated receipt, unless otherwise requested. If you would prefer to have a paper receipt mailed to you each month, you can request monthly receipting on the ACH form. 


To Change Your Gift: 
To change the amount of your gift or the fund designation, simply notify us in writing of the change you'd like to make. Submit your change by the 15th of the month for it to go into effect that month. Changes received after the 15th may not take effect until the following month.

To change the bank account associated with your gift, please submit a new ACH gift form. Specify that you are submitting a change, not establishing a second gift. 
 

To Stop Your Gift: 
To stop your recurring gift, simply notify us in writing by the 15th of the month for it to go into effect that month. Cancellations received after the 15th may not take effect until the following month.

Credit Card

Make a recurring monthly gift on your credit card. Emmaus absorbs all credit fees at no extra cost to you. Recurring gifts will continue monthly until we are notified in writing of a change. You may change or cancel your recurring gift at any time; see below for details.

You may choose to have your gift processed on the 1st or 16th of each month. When the 1st or 16th falls on a weekend or holiday, gifts are processed on the next business day.

To ensure there are no gaps in your giving, please contact the Advancement Office at 563.588.8000 ext. 1123 whenever you are issued a new card.

To Change Your Gift:

To make your changes online: Submit a new recurring gift via our regular online giving form that reflects your desired gift details.
