With all the options available for giving, it might be difficult to decide which tools or software are right for your church. You may have even signed up for some things your people aren’t using yet. There are some basic ways to optimize the tools you have and share them effectively in different situations. Knowing how to best use these tools will make it simple for your people to find them, understand the need for using them, and feel confident giving, whether they are attending a service in person or online, or even if they miss a week.
The checklist below provides some best practices for how and when to use various tools for giving. Whether your church chooses to use online giving software, Text to Give, or other options, communicating clearly to your congregation about the tools you use is important. Show them how these tools can help your church better steward the resources God has provided. When people know why your church chose to use certain tools, and how easy it is to use them, they are more likely to migrate to something new. So decide which ones will work best in your context, and customize the giving platforms for your church.
