Is my gift safe and secure?

We take information security very seriously and make every reasonable effort to ensure that your on-line transactions at our Web Site our safe. We store personally identifiable data with Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to protect information you may submit on our site. SSL is the industry standard protocol. All off-line information is securely stored and is accessible only by authorized Children’s staff.


What is a security code?

A security code is a feature on most credit cards to help secure and validate online credit card transactions. It is a three or four-digit number that usually appears on the back of the card on or near the signature block. American Express card users will find it on the front of the card. The security code is not the raised account number on the card. It is typically printed on the card and appears as the last three or four digits after your account number. The security code verifies that you have the card in your possession while making a transaction.



Will I receive a tax receipt?

When you give online, we send a gift acknowledgement which serves as your tax receipt to the email address you provide. 



What is a monthly gift or a recurring gift?

A monthly gift is a gift charged to your credit card every month. To create a monthly gift, you decide how much you would like to give every month and we will automatically bill your credit card for this amount.



How do I designate my gift?

When you make a contribution to a specific purpose or program, you are making a designated gift. You may direct your gift to support an area listed on the Designation dropdown menu on our online donation form.  If you prefer to target your gift to a program or research effort not listed on the online donation form, please contact your gift officer or you may contact us at 404-785-7539 or choagiving@choa.org with information to direct your gift where you prefer.



How do I make an honor or tribute gift?

An honor/tribute gift is a gift to honor or remember someone. You can make an honor/tribute gift by choosing to make your gift via the Tribute Gift donation form for a special occasion, like a birthday, anniversary or wedding. In addition, you can make a tribute gift in memory of someone who has passed away. We also have various eCards available for you to make an online donation via our eCard donation form to send an eCard to someone to notify them of your donation in their honor.



What is a company matching gift?

Many employers have a matching gift program to help the charitable contributions of their employees go further. So when you give a gift, your employer may make a gift of an equal amount. Learn more here, or contact your human resources office to find out if your company will match your gift to Children's.
