Many U.S. parishes use Fonkoze Bank to send funds to their sister parish because they feel it is safer than sending checks in the mail or using other means. In August 2014, Fonkoze changed the way they want transfers sent. Fonkoze is no longer accepting checks in order to do a funds transfer. The transfers must be done through (1) their partner bank Banque National de Credit or through (2) MoneyGram–Fonkoze says that Moneygram is ideally for sums under $1,000. Take note that the former Fonkoze fee schedule does not apply anymore. Please see the two links below, which are PDF files and can be saved or just opened.
