Many churches out there still just resort to giving money or checks in a church service as their only form of giving. Just paper? Yuck, I know.
The Best Forms of Donating Online for Your Church
We’re currently using the regular method, but want to transition to receiving online giving asap. Churches that allow an option for online giving report that up to 15-20% of their giving comes from people who give online. Those are people that ordinarily would not have given. In other words, if you don’t add an online option, you’re leaving money on the table…err…i mean in the wallets still.
So what’s the moral? Set up a system for online giving on your website or at your church.
ChurchCrunch.com recently posted a great article here on some of the best tools and sites that facilitate online giving. Make sure to check it out if you’re going to make the transition. And make sure to check out the responses as well. They’re golden and give much extra info as well.
So if I could jump in as well for the readers of Modern Ekklesia, what is your church using to facilitate online donations? In the next few weeks I hope to have an option in place for us. I’ll let you know as soon as it’s in place.
