How to Use ZELLE® To Donate to the Fellowship
Zelle is a computer application that enables you to electronically send and receive money to and from people you know. Once you enroll in Zelle, you only need the preferred email address or mobile phone number of the intended recipient to donate money.
Zelle is offered by over ninety (90) banks and credit unions in the United States, including Capital One, Wells Fargo, Chase, and Bank of America. To get started, make sure you’re enrolled in your bank’s mobile banking app. Go to your bank’s website or call their help line to find out how to do that.
Then, log into your mobile banking account and follow the directions to select the “Zelle” service. To send money using Zelle, you simply select the recipient from your mobile device’s contacts (or add a new recipient’s email address or U.S. mobile number), enter the amount you’d like to send, review, then hit “confirm.” For Families Anonymous, you’d use firstname.lastname@example.org.
The money you send goes directly from your bank account to the recipient’s bank account (even if it’s in a bank different from yours), and the funds are available in minutes. There’s no fee, no checks to write, and the transaction is secure. Once you send money to a particular person or entity (such as FA), their information is saved in your Zelle account so making future donations is easy: log into your online banking account and go to the Zelle service, click on the FA name, and enter the amount you want to give.
Now that many former face-to-face meetings are being held online, a number of local FA groups have also adopted Zelle as a way to virtually “pass the basket.” Please take a few minutes now to explore how you can use your online banking app and Zelle to conveniently support your local FA group and the World Service Office.
