Why a username and password?

Just like Amazon, eBay, or other popular sites, we want to ensure a great customer experience online. Web security, especially as it relates to financial transactions for electronic donations and event registrations, is our top priority. A username and password provides an additional layer of authentication to ensure a safe and secure online experience. As well, we have the added opportunity to thank you, report to you, and issue a charitable giving statement for your income tax benefit at the end of the year. We promise never to pester you with email other than what is necessary. We promise.
