Church attendance and giving often go hand in hand. When one increases so does the other, and vice versa. Just like the end of the year is known for an uptick in gifts and guests, the summertime is notorious for a decrease in attendance and giving.
Online giving grew 9.2% in 2015 and 7.9% in 2016, and this trend isn’t slowing down anytime soon. This is excellent news for churches and faith-based organizations because easyTithe gives you access to easy-to-use reporting, custom data import/export features, multiple ways to accept donations, and everything in between.
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.
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.
