Can I make a gift and spread my payments over time?
Our Monthly Giving Club is an easy way for you to make regular contributions over a specific period of time using your credit card. Donors establish the monthly contribution amount which is then deducted from their credit card for a set period of time, such as 12 monthly payments of $100 = $1,200. You also may leave the time period open-ended and authorize Selfhelp to deduct the set amount from your credit card until you instruct us to stop.
To join our Monthly Giving Club, please select "Monthly" under the Donation Frequency options on the online donation page.
