3 Ways to Give: Simply Giving, Online Giving, & Text Giving
Simply Giving, our electronic giving program, now accepts donations by credit and debit card, in addition to the long-existing option to debit automatically from your checking or savings account.

Online Giving offers everything that Simply Giving does and more! You can:

Give by Text – we also offer giving your offerings and donations by text! In much less time than it takes to write a check and address an envelope, you can now make your contribution to St. James with a quick text message. To get started, text your donation with the dollar sign (example: $5) to 610-546-2102. You’ll receive a registration link. Click the link and enter your contact and payment information. Then click “Process”. You’ll receive a verification by text and a receipt by email. For future giving, simply send a text with the amount you wish to give to Current (default fund) and it will process automatically. Use text codes to give to other funds.
In order to donate to various funds, use the following text codes:
$5 to Current (default)
$5 #build to Building Fund
$5 #ben to Benevolence
$5 #music for music sponsorship*
$5 #flower for flower sponsorship*
$35 #altar for altar flowers**
