Realm FAQ

Using your realm account to give online has several benefits.  You can set up your own recurring payments, give to multiple funds in a single transaction, and keep track of your total year-to-date giving.

You can access giving through Realm either by clicking on GIVE in the main menu above, or through the Realm Connect app by clicking the Giving icon in the bottom menu.

Realm’s main purpose is community engagement through the use of groups.  It is not an online directory where people can see your personal information.  As per the Alberta Protection of Privacy Act for non-profits, we do not provide personal information of our congregants or visitors.

By default, your name, address, phone number and other contact information can only be seen by staff members, leaders, or members of groups you are in.  Other members will only see your name and photo.  In order for other members to see your information, you must adjust your privacy settings and opt into the directory.

You, as a member of Realm at Southview Church, can change your privacy settings to give out as much or as little of your personal information as you desire to the groups you are a part of.  And don’t forget to use a good, secure, randomized password.
