Keystone does not accept credit cards for contribution purposes. We prefer electronic funds transfer, automated bank debit, bank bill pay, checks, and stocks/bonds/securities as very cost-effective giving methods. Debit cards are also accepted as an online payment method, but significant fees are incurred.
Consumer debt is a significant issue in our culture, and although many people pay off their credit card balance every month, many also do not. We do not want to encourage someone to go into debt and pay interest on gifts given to the church.
Although debit cards do not cause consumer debt, note that as much as 3% of your gift would go to the processing company through their fee structure. With electronic funds transfer, bank bill pay, and checks, your entire gift goes to the church.
