Don’t Just Ask People To Give…Ask Them To GivUp!!

Written by Mogiv Team, Filed under Inspiration, Online Giving, Uncategorized.

Sometimes, when I talk about the feature of Mogiv that I want to tell you about today, it’s hard for me to not lapse into my cheesy “infomercial” voice.

“Are you tired of stagnant giving and unengaged givers? Have you tried everything you can think of to increase giving to your church with NO LUCK?? Well thank your lucky stars, because your ship has come in! Don’t stress about giving…GivUp!!

Give up? No, no, no…not “give up” as in “quit.” I’m talking about “GivUp” as in the unique tool offered by Mogiv that lets you encourage your congregation toward sacrificial giving in a way that is both interactive and fun. Here’s how it works: (more…)

What do 61% of your young givers HATE doing? Find out!

If there has ever been a generation in need of a good PR campaign, it must be The Millennials (i.e. people born from 1979 – 1994).

They’re lazy! They’re selfish! They’re narcissistic! They’re addicted to their phones!

Spend a few minutes on the Internet or on cable TV and you’re sure to come across a talking head rambling on about how concerned we should all be about humanity’s future once The Millennials take over. This hand wringing often spills over to church offices where engaging with twenty-something givers often seems an increasingly impossible task.

Perhaps this is a challenge you’re familiar with? (more…)

Online Giving: One Church’s Story

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

A couple months ago, I told you part of my “stewardship story” and shared about how digital tools (like the ones provided by Mogiv) helped transform me from a “tipper” into a faithful “tither.”

Well today I’d like to approach the subject from the side of the church instead of the giver. Because – after all – I can talk till I’m blue in the face about the benefits of online giving, but, if it’s not bearing fruit at real live churches, what good is it?

Meet Mountain Springs Church – a multi-site church in North Idaho. They got started with Mogiv in mid-2013 and have experienced a steady uptick in giving ever since. Recently, I asked Jason Steffen, Mt. Springs’ Web and IT Director, to share some thoughts about their experience with Mogiv so far.

Why did you choose Mogiv as your giving platform?

We received several personal recommendations from The Rock Church in San Diego, CA.

Are there any positive results you can report since switching to Mogiv?

Introducing the concept of online giving in a rural community proved to be a challenge. Even though people were comfortable with online bill pay, there was a “tradition hurdle” to overcome when it came to giving to their church online. Mogiv’s simple approach to the process provided just what was needed to clear that initial hurdle. (more…)

Stop Sending Your Givers “Across The Street!”

Written by Mogiv Team, Filed under Online Giving, Uncategorized.

Here’s a scenario for you to consider. Imagine you’re shopping at your favorite store. Since it’s your favorite, you’ve obviously been here more than once. This is a store that you know like the back of your hand. The layout, color-scheme, and branding are all extremely familiar, maybe even comforting.

You collect the items you need and head toward the front of the store, but when you arrive, instead of a checkout counter or a smiling face, you are greeted by a sign that directs you across the street to a strange and foreign kiosk where you’re asked to hand over your credit card and pay for your items.

Sounds ridiculous, right? Obviously, no business would ever put you through this. Not only is it inconvenient and disconcerting for you as a customer; the store misses out on the opportunity to add a personal touch to your shopping experience.

Why, then, is this the process that so many churches and nonprofits have settled on with their online giving? (more…)

4 Myths About Online Giving – ChurchM.ag

So many of the objections to online giving are not actually objections at all. They’re simple misunderstandings (or “myths”) about the nature, benefits, and costs of online giving. This article – featured last month on ChurchM.ag, a leading church tech + creative blog – addresses some of those myths and explains why pastors need to start taking online giving seriously. (more…)
