Giving

Sacred Heart’s Online Giving is the best way for parishioners to donate to the parish. It is safe, secure, and easily managed by you. And it a great way to continue to support the parish on weekends while you’re away – and during natural events such as storms and hurricanes – and, as we have all learned – pandemics too! Sign up for online giving with our partner:You can give either with credit card or bank transfer, in a safe, secure way. Set up an account for both ongoing (weekly, monthly, quarterly, etc.) or one-time gifts, as well as:

  • Establish recurring offerings to more than one fund (Offertory, True North Vision, Church Maintenance & Repair, Diocesan School Support, Annual Pastoral Appeal (APA), and more).
  • Schedule weekly, monthly, or other frequencies of giving.
  • Schedule a one-time gift.
  • Schedule giving for future dates.
  • Print your own personalized “I give online” cards for the offertory basket.
  • Track past and present giving.
  • Receive future contribution reminder emails.
  • View and print giving history reports.
  • Easily access and print tax return and donation letters

Sacred Heart offers opportunities for giving in other  ways:

  1. Traditional Offertory Envelopes
  2. AmazonSmile Donations
  3. Tax Advantaged Giving

Our traditional offertory envelopes allow for parishioners to give weekly or monthly to meet our financial obligations, to pay our diocesan assessments, and to fund our future growth as a community. You can also choose to direct your gift to specific funds, such as Offertory, the Annual Pastoral Appeal (APA), our True North Vision, or Church Maintenance & Repair, etc. If you would like traditional envelopes, please contact Cheryl Cabrera by email or call the parish office at (813) 229-1595.


Did You Know About AmazonSmile?
AmazonSmile is a simple way to support Sacred Heart every time you shop with Amazon. You have all of the same features you know and depend upon, including your Prime member benefits of shopping and shipping, with the added bonus that AmazonSmile will contribute 0.5% of your online purchases to Sacred Heart.

Tax Advantaged Giving
Did you know that if you are over age 70-1/2 with tax-deferred IRAs, your required minimum distributions may be distributed directly to Sacred Heart, eliminating income tax on the amount of the distribution? For tax advantaged giving like this or donations of appreciated assets and stock, contact Larry Cabrera via email or call the parish office at (813) 229-1595.


Online Giving with our previous system.
If you used our previous online giving system through Our Sunday Visitor (OSV), Sacred Heart will be phasing out use of this system in the near future, however, the parish is not able to make changes to your account. As you transfer your online giving to the new GiveCentral platform, you should also cancel (not suspend) your giving from OSV as well as cancel your payment methods. Need help in transition? contact Larry Cabrera via email or call the parish office at (813) 229-1595. Both platforms will be operational to allow our parishioners time to update their accounts.
