Electronic Statements

Note: Electronic statements are available to parishes using ConnectNow Offering & Pledges.

Did you know that parishioners could use My Own Church to download their own electronic statements (e-statements)? Just think of all the time, paper, and postage your parish could save when members learn to log in and retrieve statements on their own!

Two great times for making a push to get people to use e-statements are the end of the year and early spring.

As the new year approaches, people want to review their giving history and plan for their final year-end gifts. And during tax season, they will need giving records from the previous year.

Encourage parishioners to take advantage of My Own Church’s e-statements using the resource below.

Dear [merge contact name],

Downloading your own e-statement benefits you and parish staff!

  • Help the parish reduce mailing costs and paper usage.
  • Be secure! Electronic delivery to your My Own Church account allows greater confidentiality than printed statements.
