Ask Collage – What is the Best Way to Give to Collage?
Hi! I’m Jill Johnson and I’m the Office Manager for Collage. My primary role is to take care of the financial side of the organization. So I have the privilege of getting to meet and talk with donors.
Sometimes one of the questions I get is, “What’s the best way for me to donate? Should I write a check or should I give you a credit card?” I’d like to help you determine your answer for that today.
First of all, I’m willing to take your donation in any form that you’d like to give it. We appreciate every cent that comes in! If you write a check or do an electronic transfer from your checking account, Collage receives the full amount. If you chose to give me a credit card, I can run that, but then the credit card company takes 2.5% from that amount. So, kind of your best bang for your buck is to not use a credit card. But like I said, we are more than happy to take the donation any way you’d like to present it.
If you have any questions or you’d like to talk it over more fully just give me a call here at the office and I’ll be happy to visit with you!
