Who Should Give Online?

Anyone looking for a simple, safe, efficient way to give to Cottonwood Church. You can give as a one-time gift or set up a recurring gift.

Is Cottonwood Online Giving Secure?

Yes, it is! Cottonwood is powered by Pushpay. Pushpay is Level 1 PCI DSS compliant, which also happens to be the same certification your bank has.

When are Gifts Processed?

A one-time gift will process the date you enter it. For a recurring gift, you can choose the date it will process.
