“I took your advice about online giving and raised $7K in a matter of hours!” That was a real quote from a pastor after reading a blog post of mine towards the end of the year about how to use online giving to capture end of year gifts. Without that strategy most if not all of that $7K would never have made its way to that church. That would be $7K less to be used towards missions and ministry.
What could you do with an additional $7K? Not every church can raise that amount in hours but any church can raise more funds with the tool of online giving. Find out more here http://thestewardshipcoach.org/store/
To increase giving we must make giving easy. The easier it is for someone to give the more likely they will give. Online giving is easy to use so your members and guest will be more apt to give.
To increase giving we must have relevant tools for gathering gifts. We have become a cashless and checkless society. About the only check the average Christian today writes is to their church. The next time you are out and about watch how people pay for the stuff they buy. Even food trucks take plastic as a form of payment!
To increase giving you must know how to use those tools! I have a lawn mower that does a great job of mowing my lawn. Unfortunately it requires that I start it and push it around my yard. When I do that my grass gets cut. Wouldn’t it be a waste to simply have a mower but leave it in the shed? That is what many churches do. They have the tool of online giving but they do not know how to use it correctly. They then assume that online giving will not work for their church.
My manual “The Digital Offering” shares with you how to use an online platform as a means of increasing your giving. I have helped churches both large and small set up online platforms or increase giving with their current platform. I can help you. Get your copy here at http://thestewardshipcoach.org/store/
Using my strategies I recently helped a church increase their online giving from just over $300K to well over $1 million dollars! At the same time I helped a church of only 100 members build their online giving to represent 50% of all proceeds. That pastor said, “Online giving has taken the panic out of Monday mornings.” If I can help them I can help you.
