Churches everywhere are preparing for the increase in generosity around the holidays. Last year, 25% of overall giving for faith-based organizations happened in November and December, and online giving grew in December for the second year in a row.
The most charitable season is right around the corner, and it’s the ideal time for churches and faith-based groups to enhance their online giving campaigns. Online giving grew by 7.9% last year, and the rise in generosity has already been noticed in 2017.
Churches and faith-based organizations across the globe are getting ready to participate in #GivingTuesday, and it’s no wonder! With the focus placed on generosity instead of shopping for a moment, it can be a nice break and sound reminder about the true meaning of the Christmas season
You may be wondering why so many churches today seem to be using online giving as their main tool for accepting donations. It’s simple really – the easier it is for people to give the more likely, and more frequently, they will give.
We’ve all heard the stories of church members fearing the increasing role of technology when it comes to their personal information being exposed while electronically tithing. You can always explain to your congregation that online giving is quick, easy and convenient.
