With Easter behind us and April nearly over, students and teachers around the country are beginning to check their calendars and count the days until the promised relief of another summer arrives.
Unfortunately, for many pastors and churches, the arrival of summer brings with it not only lazy days and carefree nights, but also some of the leanest giving months of the year.
The causes of the aptly named “Summer Giving Slump” are easy to identify. Families are out of town; seniors are hitting the road for the summer; and just about everyone is off of their regular routines. All of which point to an obvious solution: you need to provide your attendees with a way to give whether or not they’re actually with you on Sunday morning!
If you’re tired of sweating over your finances all summer long, online giving may be just the relief you’ve been looking for. Fortunately, with Mogiv, smoothing out the summer slump is as easy as 1 – 2 – 3.
Step #1: Sign-up for a Mogiv account today! Whether you’re trying online giving for the first time or looking to improve your current processes, we make it a breeze to get started. In fact, you can complete the entire signup process in less than 10 minutes. With NO setup fees, subscription fees, service fees, or contracts, online giving has never been easier!
Step #2: Add our giving form right onto your website. With a simple copy/paste, Mogiv’s mobile-ready giving form can be added directly to your church’s website. Once done, your givers will be able to make one-time and scheduled gifts from their bank accounts and debit/credit cards without ever leaving your website! (HERE is an example of our giving form in action.)
Step #3: Use our free resources to talk with your congregation about online giving. From bulletin inserts to talking points to intro videos to graphics for your website, Mogiv provides you with the tools you need to educate your givers about the giving options available to them while they’re crisscrossing the country this summer. Inconsistent attendance doesn’t have to equal inconsistent giving!
