Last week CBF made a change to its giving webpage – a change we’ve been waiting on for a few weeks. You can now make payments with a credit card, and can choose for your monthly commitment to come off the credit card automatically. This makes things a lot easier for some folks, and we know some of you are relieved to hear about the change!

Please note that while we are excited that this easier option is available, we want to stress that we believe credit cards should be used responsibly – for financial convenience but NOT as a means to gather more debt. It seems silly to mention this here of all places, but we’ve seen first- and second-hand what credit card debt can do to families. We believe in, and work from, a zero-based envelope budgeting system (the kind endorsed by Dave Ramsey – we’re also big fans of YNAB software for keeping track of personal finances). We trust that you already have your own financial system in place, and that you use credit cards carefully. But if you want to know more about this method, just ask us and we’ll be glad to tell you more!
