A Statement from the Business Office regarding the Security of Txt2Give OnLine Giving
Our parish is using “Txt2Give” to manage text gifts for donations. Txt2Give’s team has extensive experience developing software that handles electronic payments. Bank-level encryption is used when transmitting credit card data to a secure processor, and sensitive credit card information never enters Txt2Give. It's transmitted directly from the mobile device to the payment processor. Txt2Give is the same platform used by the Diocese of Rochester for CMA gifts. The Diocese vetted this platform with its legal counsel and auditors for security, PCI compliance*, and compatibility with its payment processor before implementing and endorsing it for use in the parishes.
If you have questions regarding Text2Give, please contact our Finance Director, Mary Capone at 585-281-7440.
*PCI compliance standards require merchants and other businesses to handle credit card information in a secure manner that helps reduce the likelihood that cardholders would have sensitive financial account information stolen.
