At SVA, we are in the midst of doing an incredible God-mission all over the world! Your giving is the way we are able to accomplish this, and we greatly appreciate your partnership in the gospel!
Welcome to SVA's Online Giving Service :
Online giving is a safe and easy way to support the ministries of SVA. This system enables you to support the church by making a one-time contribution or establishing a recurring contribution.
3 Simple Steps
- Create a user id and password.
- Provide contact and bank or credit card information.***
- Indicate the amount, frequency (one-time or recurring) and designation for your gift.
***NOTE: We discourage the use of giving through Credit Cards, if you are going to incur debt through your contributions. Additionally, if you would like help working on a plan to bring order to your personal finances, SVA offers Financial Classes throughout the year.
At SVA, we use an online database called Fellowship One. Their system allows us to provide access to your contribution records and allows you to make donations online. They provide all of the security for the system. This system is fully tested and used by churches throughout the country.
There are two aspects of security related to the system. First, Fellowship One provides data security using the latest security technology. The following statement is from their security documentation: "[the system] utilizes the most current encryption technology to maintain the security of your data. Every parameter passed in the hyperlinks is fully encrypted. Additionally, the Login module handles passwords using what is known in technical terms as salted hash. In laymen’s terms, this means it would take 50 computers (running constantly) continuously presenting password combinations four years to discover the password."
The second aspect of security relates to account creation. When you first create a new account in the system, you will be able to donate immediately, but you will not have access to any previous contribution information. Before that can happen, we must manually link your previous information to the account you created.
In order to verify the authenticity of the account request, we will ensure that all of your data matches our current records (e.g., address, phone number, and email address). If there is any question, we will contact you via email before creating the link. Since this is a manual process, we will perform these steps approximately once a week, but if you would like to speed up this process, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When you create your account, you will determine your own login id and password. If you forget your login id or password, you can have the system email it to you by entering the email address that you used when you created your account. If you need help or cannot remember the email address you used, you can contact us at email@example.com. You can also change your password at any time.
Please help us keep your information safe by protecting your login information. Access to sensitive personal and financial information can be gained by letting someone else use your account or by leaving the information for someone else to see. SVA will never call you to ask for your login information.
Your information is held securely by the Fellowship One system. This information will remain private and will never be given away to third parties, other than to process your scheduled contributions.
You can schedule new contributions at any time and can modify or cancel those contributions at any time prior to the date they are scheduled. Once the contribution has been processed, however, it cannot be canceled. If you have any problems or questions related to this, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
