Who is Intuit, and How does an E-CHECK work vs. a PayPal payment?
Intuit PaymentNetwork is powered by Intuit, the maker of QuickBooks®, Quicken®, and TurboTax®. Intuit processes over 116 million transactions each year for small businesses. For more about Intuit, or to create an account, go to Intuit PaymentNetwork. PayPal is one of the most respected and secure means of transferring funds on the internet. For more about PayPal, go to PayPal.com.
100% of your donation will go to the items listed above, less a service fee. (PayPal service fee is 2.9% + $.30/transaction. i.e. For a $100 donation, we receive $96.80.
Intuit E-CHECK service fee is only $0.50/transaction. i.e. For a $100 donation, we receive $99.50)
Thus, an E-CHECK donation is our preferred method of payment.
All donations are transferred directly to our mission bank account of our sponsor organization Santa Clara Foursquare Church (also known as Valley Life Center), which is a licensed 501(c)3 charitable organization. Click here for more about Santa Clara Foursquare Church.

Mail a Donation
An Intuit E-CHECK transfer is preferred over a paper check for payments because it saves time of our volunteers to open, record, and deposit hundreds of checks. The E-CHECK payment via Intuit is our preferred method of payment (see instructions above), because it's super fast for you and for us, accurate, safer than paper because we never see your bank information (nor does anyone else handling your mail), and it only costs us $.50/transaction. For these reasons, we strongly discourage donations made with a paper check. If you are not able to use the E-CHECK payment method, please mail us a paper check, carefully following the instructions below:
To mail a donation for any of the above items, please write a check payable to SANTA CLARA FOURSQUARE CHURCH. In the CHECK MEMO please PRINT: GUATEMALA MISSION + ITEM NAME (i.e. CHECK MEMO: Guatemala Mission - 1 Stove).
If choosing to “Sponsor A Volunteer”, please only write GUATEMALA MISSION in the CHECK MEMO, then write the volunteer's name on an included post-it. No personal names on the check or in the CHECK MEMO, please, only on an attachment or post-it. Please MAIL check via First Class US Mail to:
Santa Clara Foursquare Church
3421 Monroe St
Santa Clara, CA 95051
