A security code is a feature on most credit cards to help secure and validate online credit card transactions. It is a three or four-digit number that usually appears on the back of the card on or near the signature block. American Express card users will find it on the front of the card. The security code is not the raised account number on the card. It is typically printed on the card and appears as the last three or four digits after your account number. The security code verifies that you have the card in your possession while making a transaction.
When you give online, we send a gift acknowledgement which serves as your tax receipt to the email address you provide.
Please contact our Gift Processing department at email@example.com or 404-785-6010 to receive tax receipts.
A monthly gift is a gift charged to your credit card every month. To create a monthly gift, you decide how much you would like to give every month and we will automatically bill your credit card for this amount.
When you make a contribution to a specific purpose or program, you are making a designated gift. You may direct your gift to support an area listed on the Designation dropdown menu on our online donation form. If you prefer to target your gift to a program or research effort not listed on the online donation form, please contact your gift officer or you may contact us at 404-785-7539 or firstname.lastname@example.org with information to direct your gift where you prefer.
An honor/tribute gift is a gift to honor or remember someone. You can make an honor/tribute gift by choosing to make your gift via the Tribute Gift donation form for a special occasion, like a birthday, anniversary or wedding. In addition, you can make a tribute gift in memory of someone who has passed away. We also have various eCards available for you to make an online donation via our eCard donation form to send an eCard to someone to notify them of your donation in their honor. For eCard questions please contact email@example.com.
