Tools4Church is available under various subscriptions. Your subscription price will be billed in advance on a monthly basis and is non-refundable. Neither refunds nor credits will be issued for partial months of service, downgraded service, or months unused during a subscription. Canceled service will terminate, and downgraded service will take effect at the end of the current, paid billing period.

Service can be canceled, upgraded, or downgraded by contacting us at support@Tools4Church.com.

From time to time, we may change the subscription prices for Tools4Church. Any increase in charges will be communicated via e-mail to all users designated as Administrator on your church’s account at least 30 days in advance of the increase.

Churches with whom Horizons Stewardship Co, Inc., has a written Client Agreement may qualify for discounted use of the Tools4Church Financial Analytics tool. Any applicable discount will automatically be applied to your church’s bill during the duration of your Client Agreement and will expire at the conclusion of the Client Agreement. Users wishing to take advantage of this offer should contact their Horizons Stewardship representative to facilitate the setup of the church’s Tools4Church account rather than setting up their account through the Tools4Church website / app. If you believe your church qualifies for a discount that it is not receiving, please contact us at support@Tools4Church.com.
