Allow Parishioners to Give via Parish Life

Make sure you've set up Abundant as your eGiving provider. For steps, see Set Up Your eGiving Provider.

Using our online giving solution, Abundant, parishioners can give toward your parish's default fund within Parish Life. If you have Abundant set up in PDS, the Give Now button automatically displays to parishioners under their My Contributions section in Parish Life. There's nothing else you need to set up!

Parish Life uses the default form for parishioners to give toward. If needed, you can change the default form. You can also customize the colors to better match your parish's brand or to match Parish Life for a more seamless transition.

  1. Log in to your parish's Abundant account.
  2. In your list of giving forms, locate the one you want to make the default.
  3. Beside the giving form, click the ellipsis button (...), and select Make Default.

The default form displays in a new browser tab when parishioners click Give Now in Parish Life. Parishioners can enter a one-time gift or set up recurring gifts.

Once parishioners give, you can pull the transactions in to PDS using the eGiving quick posting.
