Did you know 12% of all annual giving occurs on the last three days in December? Some church donors cut it down to the wire because it’s a busy time of year. Many that give consistently enjoy making additional one-time gifts around the holidays.
Whether your church is new to online giving or you’re switching providers, robust reporting features are a must! Reports are crucial because they reduce admin burden, keep your church better organized, and help you complete daily tasks faster.
Last year, faith-based organizations received the largest percentage of online gifts on #GivingTuesday compared to other nonprofit sectors. Yet, many churches are on the fence about whether they should participate on November 27th.
#GivingTuesday kicks off the season of generosity, and it’s on November 27th! While it’s only a single day, the impact is momentous. The first #GivingTuesday was in 2012 and raised over $10.1 million online. In 2017, over $274 million was raised, and this year giving is expected to increase by 21%.
Last year was record-breaking for #GivingTuesday with $274 million raised online. This year, experts predict that we’ll see a 21% increase in online gifts and raise over $330 million in total. While it’s taken a while for this global day of generosity to catch on, the impact noticeably grows year after year.
