Online giving has become an increasingly popular way to make charitable donations, and churches are no exception to this trend. Not only does it simplify the process of tithes and offerings for donors, but it also has the potential to significantly increase the amount of donations received.

The advantages of online giving for your church

First, online giving makes it easy to give wherever and whenever people engage with your church. This is especially important in today's fast-paced, mobile world, where people are often engaging with church through live streaming, a mobile app, on-demand video, etc. By offering online giving options, churches can meet members where they are and make giving simple and convenient.

Another advantage of online giving is that it allows your church to reach a wider audience. With the rise of social media and other digital channels, churches can now connect with people beyond their immediate communities and connect on a more personal level. By incorporating online giving into your church’s digital channels, you can further enhance the giving experience for members.

Research on the benefits of online giving

But don’t take it from us, here’s the data to back the benefits of online giving. Here are four key trends according to Nonprofits Source:

  • Churches that accept tithing online increase overall donations by 32%.
  • An average of 60% of attendees are willing to give to their church digitally, and an average of 49% of all church giving transactions are made with a card.
  • Mobile donations make up more than 25% of total nonprofit giving and continue to grow.
  • Millennials prefer mobile payments, for donations and otherwise, with 44% responding that they would rather pay by phone than use cash.

This data suggests that online giving is not only a more convenient way to give, but it can also encourage people to give more frequently and generously.
