We strive to make the giving experience incredibly easy for donors, but we also want admins to have everything they need to manage data successfully.

Let’s take a quick look at 5 feature enhancements you’ll enjoy when upgrading to MoGiv’s new platform.

Written by Valerie Russell, Filed under Mogiv Tips, New Updates, Online Giving, Uncategorized.

Mogiv has been hard at work to improve the features and functionality of our platform. Later this summer, we’ll be launching a new giving portal that enhances the admin and giver experience. Soon, you’ll upgrade to a more robust online giving platform that offers smarter solutions for managing gifts, reporting, and more.

We know change can be intimidating, and we want to ensure you know what to expect when you make the transition. That’s why we’ve created a 4-part series to help familiarize you with the new giving portal. In this series, we’ll review:

  • What you can expect from the new interface
  • Changes to reporting and deposits
  • Feature improvements and highlights
  • How to utilize the new giving portal to save time and be cost-effective

Let’s dive in!

Why I Keep Talking About Giving

Written by Mogiv Team, Filed under Church Life, Communication, Mogiv Tips, Uncategorized.

“This is just a hugely distasteful example of the American money obsession gospel which us non-Americans find nauseating.”

I stared at my inbox and read the response twice. Then three times. Somewhere, in some other country, some nameless person with an @hotmail.com email address was very upset with me.

Earlier that morning I had emailed out a blog post about the importance of speed and simplicity when it comes to online giving. The few responses I’d received back had been largely positive. But then came this one.

I’ve been sharing content on the Internet long enough to know that negative feedback comes with the territory. I try not to take it personally. But, for some reason, this response really got to me.

I think part of the reason was its source. This email purportedly came from a fellow brother or sister in Christ. This is exactly the kind of person that Mogiv is working to empower and equip, and yet he/she found those efforts to be “hugely distasteful.”

Another reason for pause came from the accusation itself. We’re all familiar with the oft-cited excesses of prominent American pastors in recent decades. Indeed, it is those very excesses that Mogiv (and perhaps you as well) are working to reverse. We exist not only to help churches increase their monthly giving, but also to help re-frame the conversations churches have around generosity. Based on that feedback, not only had we fallen short in our efforts, we had become a living embodiment of that which we most despise! (more…)

What is #GivingTuesday?

Now in it’s fifth year, it is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. (more…)

3 Things Southwest Airlines Taught Me About Online Giving

Written by Mogiv Team, Filed under Church Life, Mobile Giving, Online Giving, Uncategorized.

I’ve been spending a lot of time on Southwest Airlines flights this year. And it’s all my wife’s fault. She travels for work at least once a month, and – since my work for Mogiv can be done from anywhere with Wi-Fi and cell reception – I’ve made a habit of tagging along. Especially when she’s traveling to a city with an abundance of mountains, beaches, coffee shops, or some combination thereof.

Whether you’ve flown on Southwest Airlines or not, I bet you’re well familiar with their brightly colored planes and quirky antics. Their winning corporate culture, and uncommon approach to air travel have won them numerous awards over the years and have inspired more than a few business school case studies.

But corporate execs and rival airlines aren’t the only ones who could borrow a page or two from Southwest’s playbook. Those of us working in fundraising and church stewardship could learn a few things from them as well!

Turns out, some of the things Southwest is getting right are as essential for online giving as they are for air travel. Seem like a stretch? Let me show you what I mean. Here are three parallels that I jotted down on a recent Southwest Flight. (more…)
