Monthly Giving Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is Monthly Giving?
Monthly Giving is a convenient way to support the Newberry’s Annual Fund by making a contribution every month. First, you choose an amount to give monthly and then the Newberry will automatically bill your credit or debit card. The minimum monthly contribution is $5 per month.


When will my credit or debit card be charged for Monthly Giving?

Regardless of when you sign up for Monthly Giving, your card will be charged on the 15th of the month. If the 15th falls on a weekend or holiday, your card will be charged the following business day.

Is my Monthly Giving automatically renewed every year?
Yes. Monthly Giving is an ongoing donation plan. We will continue to charge your credit or debit card on the 15th of the month until you cancel or change your plan.

How do I change the amount of my monthly gift, the credit or debit card I use for Monthly Giving, or cancel my Monthly Giving?
