Information for Participating Organizations

Parish Donations Eligible for "Assessment Waiver"

The Archdiocesan “assessment waiver” for parish donations continues to apply for online donations made on Giving Tuesday through the GIVECatholicAOC website.

The same criteria applies as the past two years for donations to be eligible for the assessment waiver:

  1. Donation is made online through the GIVECatholicAOC platform, powered by GiveCentral, via credit card or EFT.
  2. Donation is made on Giving Tuesday, December 1 (12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m.).

Offline donations added to the GiveCentral system, such as checks received at the parish, are not eligible for the assessment waiver. Tracking online donations is the most efficient and accurate way to manage this process.

For questions or additional information, please contact the Director of the Stewardship Department, David Kissell, at (513) 263-3381 or email [email protected].

Receiving Donations Made on Giving Tuesday

Donations made on Giving Tuesday will be processed by GiveCentral and deposited through the Archdiocese. Funds will be distributed by check to organizations within 10 days after Giving Tuesday (Note: Credit Card/EFT processing fees will be taken out before the final distribution of funds. Organizations will receive the net donation amount).

Here is the break-down of transaction fees for the GiveCentral Platform:

  • ACH (Electronic Check): 0.4% + 0.38 per transaction
  • Visa/MasterCard/Discover: 1.4% – 2.9% (fees vary depending on card used)
  • American Express: 2.25%
What Happened to iGiveCatholic?

For the past two years, the Archdiocese participated in the national iGiveCatholic initiative and their giving platform for Giving Tuesday. In evaluating last year’s giving day, we received a lot of feedback from participants that the transaction fees were too high, about 6% per donation, on the iGiveCatholic platform.

After exploring a few other options, we decided to partner with GiveCentral for our giving day and rename the day #GiveCatholicAOC. Give Central is an online giving provider that has the capability to offer crowdfunding webpages at a lower cost – on average, transaction fees are between 2% and 3% per donation.

GiveCentral is the online giving provider for the annual Catholic Ministries Appeal (CMA).
