Old First now has the capability to accept pledges through Realm, our online church directory. We are currently accepting pledges for both the capital campaign and the 2015 stewardship campaign.
Not only can you submit your pledge online, but you’ll be able to track your giving online, too. As you make gifts toward your pledge, that information will be logged into your account in Realm. When you look there, you’ll be able to see exactly how much you’ve given so far, and how much more you have left to fulfill the pledge.
The information on your giving is only accessible by you and by the church’s Financial Secretary and Assistant Financial Secretary (Gerry W. and Laura S.).
The process is pretty simple.
If you already have a username & password for Realm:
- Log in
- Once you’re in the system, you’ll be on your own profile page. In the middle of the screen, there are a few tabs. Click on the one that says Giving.
- Click on the little button that says + Pledge.
- On the next screen, fill out the form and click Save Pledge
If you need a username/password or you forgot yours:
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you prefer to submit your pledge the old-fashioned way:
No problem! Use the pledge cards that you received in the mail (or that are found in the pew racks at church) and mail in back to the church office. Your pledge will be logged into Realm for you, so you’ll still be able to track your giving if you have a username & password.
Questions or comments? Contact Suzanne at email@example.com.
See you in church!
