5 Church Website Tweaks To Increase Your Online Giving

How easy would it be for your church members to give if you stopped passing the basket entirely?

Ok, so maybe you don’t use a basket, but somehow, someway, you’re making giving accessible to your members each and every time they visit your church.

Not only are you inviting members to give during service, there’s probably also an easy way to give without much effort whether it’s a kiosk, a basket, or their own mobile device (thanks to companies like Mogiv).

It’s how church giving has always been done.

But something strange happens on church websites when it comes to giving. The way things are naturally done in person seems to be completely forgotten online, and many churches make it harder than it needs to be for people to donate.

In fact, though technology is available to make it simple, there are still many churches who don’t receive a single dime online. Even big churches with thousands of members often miss these online giving opportunities. Opportunities that could provide them additional resources to increase their staff, expand their outreach, and create more channels for outreach.

After completing a website redesign for one of the largest churches in Chicago, here are 5 website tweaks that have been proven to dramatically increase online giving. (more…)

What’s The Deal With PayPal?

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

“We were looking into a few other giving solutions, but eventually we decided to just go with PayPal.”

If you’ve ever heard or said this exact thing, than take a look around because you have LOTS of company. And it’s easy to see why.

With credit card processing fees of only 2.2% + $0.30, PayPal is still one of the cheapest giving solutions available. And, admittedly, PayPal is an fine solution for basic financial processing. If you want to electronically send money from Point A to Point B, you can’t do much better than PayPal.

But simply sending money is not all digital giving is about. What about all of the other things your church needs from your online giving platform?

  • What about flexible (and easy-to-edit) recurring giving options?
  • What about multiple giving funds to direct donations toward different ministries within your church?
  • What about a suite of admin tools and reports that will help you draw givers deeper into your community?
  • What about direct deposit of contributions?
  • What about text and mobile giving???

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…)

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…)
