Cheques: What you need to know now.
It seems that most New Zealand banks will be phasing-out cheques by July this year, 2021.
As long as your bank still honours cheques – FEBC (and others) still gratefully accept cheques. However! Time is running out to familiarise with other methods of paying and donating.
We acknowledge that this is a stressful and inconvenient issue for many people. If there’s anything we can do to help you, please freephone us on 0800 433 226. We would love to send you a Help Sheet of useful tips for paying and donating without using cheques.
FEBC is a member of the Fundraising Institute of New Zealand. FINZ has done everything they can to lobby the government and the banks, and help reduce the impact of this change.
FEBC has excellent telephone and online donation facilities, using the highest level security available for credit card and debit card transactions. We also pay the lowest transaction fees possible, and no monthly merchant fee!
Your identification with FEBC mission – ‘to broadcast Christ to the world by media,’ and your commitment to support the nations is more vital now than ever. Christian outreach and discipleship broadcasting technology is surely a gift from God “for such a time as this” (Esther 4:14). If you need any assistance or guidance please freephone us, we’re ready to help. Thank you.
