Transitioning Recurring Giving from Realm to Church Center
This one is hidden so that the other two start out closed. It’s set up under advanced, custom CSS. – Randall
Why We're excited about this
We are transitioning our church from our old software, Realm, to a new software called Church Center. We believe this change will improve our communication tools as a church and make lots of things like finding events, connecting with each other, finding opportunities to serve, registering for events, and giving online.
There are two things you need to do to help us with this transition:
One: If you have online recurring gifts to the church set up, transfer those to Church Center (again, full instructions are in the “How to set up your new recurring gift in church center” box below).
How to set up your new recurring gift in Church Center
Here are the simple directions to set up your recurring gift:
1. Visit parkstreet.churchcenter.com/giving
2. Select your category for giving, and under “Frequency” select “Regularly.”
3. To add another gift to a different category, click the “Add donation” button and select the additional category.
4. Enter your gift details and choose a payment option.
5. Your recurring gift to Park Street Church is now set up!
How to cancel your old recurring gift in realm
Here are the simple directions to cancel your scheduled gifts:
1. Visit onrealm.org/ParkStreetChurc
2. Navigate on the left hand side to “Giving”
3. Click on “Scheduled”
4. Once you locate your recurring gift, click on the horizontal ellipsis (…) icon to the right of the gift
5. Choose “cancel”
We're here to help you
It’s important to us that you feel fully supported during this transition. So if you run into any trouble at all, please email us at [email protected] and we will have someone get in contact with you to help. If you’d like to set up a time to meet, we’re also available to do that.
Log in to Church Center to give securely by ACH/bank transfer, credit or debit card, or Apple Pay. (First-time users will have the opportunity to create an account.)
Here are the processing fees associated with each method of giving:
ACH/Bank Transfer: 0% + $0.30
Credit/Debit Card: 2.15% + $0.30
Apple Pay: 2.15% + $0.30
ACH/Bank Transfer is strongly preferred for all giving through Church Center!
Park Street Church will incur zero processing fees when you give through your bank’s bill pay service!
Appreciated Securities and Property
Gifts of appreciated securities and other personal property allow PSC to benefit from the full market value of your gift while enabling you to take advantage of significant tax savings.

Please email the Finance Office or call our Financial Controller, Joe Ghobrial, at 617.523.3383, ext 311 with any questions.
Gifts of Endowment and Estate Planning
Gifts to the endowment fund provide a source of permanent funding for the ministries of PSC. The principal of your gift remains whole, while providing permanent income for ministry. The endowment fund is professionally managed by Wellington Management Company. In addition, estate planning allows you to provide for your children, grandchildren and other family members while leaving a legacy for Park Street’s ongoing ministries. PSC welcomes gifts through life insurance, wills, trusts, retirement accounts and life estates. To plan such a gift, either consult your personal financial planner or contact the PSC Finance Office for more information.
