Utilizing Church Donation Software allows today’s churches to connect with and tap into their constituency throughout the week. While traditional methods of soliciting donations continue to be effective for churches, having a secure, mobilized online donation website is becoming more and more important. A donations website makes it so much easier to receive funds from your congregation, share information and donation requests via social media, and help your church reach campaign goals.
Why do Churches Need Donation Software?
If your church has never gone online before, you may be asking if it’s really necessary to invest in donation software. Churches who use church donation software are much more likely to attain fundraising goals and build needed capital for their church, than churches who collect donations only in the traditional way. Most people order goods and make donations online today, so why should your church be left out?

Creating an Online Giving Campaign for Churches
Church online giving is an important part of any church fundraising campaign. Online giving provides a great opportunity for your organization to raise more money for your church by reaching new potential donors and extending your reach beyond current congregation members. Of course, traditional fundraising methods should not be dismissed, as they are still very effective in securing donations. However, by combining church online giving programs with traditional fundraising tactics, your church can maximize fundraising results while reaching more potential donors.
In order to integrate online giving as part of your church’s overall fundraising efforts, you’ll need to consider the online environment. This starts with creating a fundraising website where you can post information about your fundraising campaign and allow for online donations. Ask members of your congregation to share the fundraising website link with neighbors, family members, friends and co-workers. This will allow you to take your fundraising campaign beyond your congregation, making your cause more visible to new potential donors. You can also post a link to your donation or fundraising campaign on your church organization’s website. And, if you have a church blog where you share stories of faith, this provides another opportunity for sharing personal fundraising stories.
You will also need to make some administrative changes. Be sure to collect email addresses from your congregation, so you can send email donation requests with a link to your fundraising website. Email is a great way to inform your congregation about fundraising drives, send event reminders, and more. Not only can you easily embed a link to your fundraising website for online donations, but an email is very easy to forward (vs. a letter which is only viewed by one household).
Promote your online giving campaign with a strategy that blends traditional solicitation efforts with new online outreach opportunities. Continue to distribute donation request letters, either at Sunday services or through mail, as they are effective – especially when you provide people with an easy way to respond (i.e. self addressed and stamped envelope and collection boxes at church). But, be sure to provide these new online contribution options as well.

There are many reasons for non-profits and churches to host special events (besides just raising money). Building awareness and community are important for your congregation, and fundraising events help you to do just that.
