Text-To-Give:

Encourage spontaneous giving by accepting instant donations via text message.

Cash and Check:

Setup

To get started with Planning Center Giving go to www.planningcenter.com/giving and click Start Your Free Trial. Next, enter your Org name, Your name, an email address and a password. This will create an account and allow you to get started.

The setup takes about 30 minutes or so. Planning Center will walk you through each step, but here are two important items you should know before getting started:

  1. Once you've completed the setup, you'll be the sole administrator. Only Giving administrators will be able to access Giving, but you can always add other admins later. (See Adding An Admin)

  2. During this setup process, you'll create a Stripe Account (or sign in to an existing one). A Stripe account is required to set up and use PCO Giving. *Note: Think of Planning Center Giving as a cash register and Stripe as a bank.

Some information you'll need for setting up a Stripe account:

  • Organization Information (name, address, phone, website, etc)

  • Tax ID number (EIN or SSN for your non-profit)

  • Last 4 of the SSN for the main "owner"

  • Bank routing and account number for payouts

After setup, you'll have some followup tasks like enabling text-to-give, configuring the free Church Center mobile, and more

If you need any help as you're getting set up, use the ? at the top right to open a ticket with the support team or browse the knowledge base.
