Matching Gifts

Many companies offer matching gifts on your behalf. A matching gift is when a business or corporation chooses to contribute to organizations their employees support. 

It is a powerful way to increase the impact of your giving. You can apply for a matching gift through your company's Human Resources department.

 

It can take a few weeks or a few months for the entire matching gift process to be completed. 

FAQ.

No. That said, we do recommend creating one so that you can view your online giving history. Also, you will be asked to create an account if you’d like to setup recurring donations.

Do I need to create an account to give online?

Yes. You will be emailed a donation receipt each time you give. Again, we recommend creating an account so you can view all your online giving history.

Will I receive a receipt when I give online?

It usually takes about 2-3 days between the time you give and when it appears in Seeking the City's bank account.

How long does it take for Seeking the City to receive my gift?

Yes, absolutely. All sensitive financial information is stored with bank level security. All information is secured with 256 AES encryption and stored by our banking partner to Level 1 PCI compliance standards. Additionally, all transmissions to our banking partner and on our site are via an encrypted HTTPS connection.

Is my card and bank account information secure?

Anytime your card is charged you will receive both an email and a text message confirmation from our system.

How will I know when my card is charged?

Yes! Through giving online, you'll see a dropdown menu of available fund designations. 

Can I designate my gift to a specific fund?

Simply visit Seeking the City's giving page and Sign In. Once logged into your account, you'll find your information (and how to edit it) in the top corner.

How do I edit my donor account information?

You can give online using your checking account or one of these card providers: Visa, Mastercard, Discover, or American Express. You can also use Google Pay. 

What are the types of payment options? 

Yes, Seeking the City uses a payment processor that has agreed to reduce the rate of both debit/credit cards and ACH transfers (bank account E-check). 

When giving using a debit/credit card, there is a 2% processing fee. When giving using ACH (bank account E-check), the processing fee is a .5% processing fee. We recommend using ACH for recurring giving  due to its low processing fee. 

Are there processing fees involved for online giving?

Yes, you have the option for giving a one-time gift or setting up a recurring gift. 

A one-time gift will be processed instantly. Recurring gifts can be scheduled on the dates or frequency that work best for you.

Can I make a one-time or a recurring contribution?

Yes, you have the option for giving a one-time gift or setting up a recurring gift. 

A one-time gift will be processed instantly. Recurring gifts can be scheduled on the dates that work best for you.
