I’ve been writing about online giving here at ChurchTechToday for nearly six years; I’ve written about it even longer through my work as a church tech public relations consultant. Truth is, many churches still don’t have a way to accept online donations, and that can be a problem.
For years, I sent in my church tithe via my bank’s online bill pay, which cut a check every month on the same day and mailed it to my church. Then my church added online giving through its church management software, Church Community Builder, and setting up a recurring tithe online became even easier (and I didn’t have to wait a whole week or more for my check to clear the church’s bank account).
Below is a really interesting and insightful infographic from Fellowship One and Active Network detailing the benefits of online giving for your church:
- What would your church do with an extra week’s tithes and offerings every month?
- 81% of American adults use the internet
- Americans are writing few checks
- Online giving fosters financial health
- 14% of church offer online giving
What sight would you share with other churches looking to get on the online giving bandwagon?
