JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas –
Soldiers, their families and civilians who attend chapel at any Army post across the world can now give their tithes and offerings online.
“This gives congregation members the opportunity to donate 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” said Master Sgt. Andrew Hagemann, chief religious affairs noncommissioned officer for the U.S. Army’s Installation Management Command at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston.
Hagemann says this opens up the opportunity for people to give at any location at any time, even if they are downrange.
The process to donate online is simple, Hagemann said. Users can visit http://www.armyctofdigitalgiving.com, select their installation, use the drop-down menu to select the category they want to support, and enter the amount they wish to donate. The website emails the user a receipt or gives them an option to print one.
Hagemann said that the website is easy to use and the Army has a QR code to display in the chapels and bulletins.
“We have been working on this for a while and when COVID-19 hit, we sped it up,” he said. “This is something we needed to have because a lot of religious services are fully digital right now.”
Hageman said Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation, the G9 division of IMCOM, helped tremendously with creating the website.
“If it wasn’t for FMWR’s efforts, we would not even be close to going active,” he said.
The website can be accessed from anywhere in the world using a mobile device or desktop computer. It is safe to use and protects people’s information.
