Simply Giving is an automated giving program from Thrivent Financial for Lutherans designed to help you conveniently and consistently contribute to your congregation. Through Simply Giving your gifts are made through a pre-authorized withdrawal from your bank account. You determine the frequency of your automatic gift – weekly, semi-monthly or monthly—the option is yours. Your gift is deposited into Ascension’s bank account on the same day it is withdrawn from your account. Simply Giving is a reliable, safe way to move your stewardship plan into action. It allows you to share your gifts through planned giving and activates your generosity into ongoing stewardship. Because your gift is given consistently, you won’t need to play “catch-up” at year-end or worry about forgotten checkbooks or missed Sunday offerings. You benefit and Ascension benefits from steady, more predictable revenues throughout the year, more efficient bookkeeping, and greater confidence in meeting our financial commitments.
