“You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. ‘For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.’ And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.”

What does “Contribute a little extra to help offset processing costs” mean?
Every online transaction is subject to a processing fee from the company that provides the service to make sure the transactions are safe and secure. By checking the optional “Processing costs” box you are ensuring that we get the full amount intended with your gift. The additional processing cost will be included on your tax receipt.
How do I change or cancel my automatic giving?
If you give with your credit card on Realm, simply log in to your Realm account to make changes to the frequency or amount of your automatic giving. If you give via automatic bank withdrawal, email accounting to request the change.
How can I give using my Realm account?
Using your Realm account to give online has benefits. You can set up your own recurring payments, give to multiple funds in a single transaction, and keep track of your total year-to-date giving. You can access giving through Realm either by clicking on giving in the main menu above, or through the Realm Connect app.
How is my information protected?
Realm’s main purpose is community engagement through the use of groups. It is not an online directory where people can see your personal information. As per the Alberta Protection of Privacy Act for non-profits, we do not provide personal information of our congregants or visitors.
By default, your name, address, phone number and other contact information can only be seen by staff members, leaders, or members of groups you are in. Other members will only see your name and photo. In order for other members to see your information, you must adjust your privacy settings and opt into the directory.
You, as a member of Realm at First Alliance Church, can change your privacy settings to give out as much or as little of your personal information as you desire to the groups you are a part of. And don’t forget to use a good, secure, randomized password.
