Online giving in a church environment can be tricky. Much of the data is reported courtesy of online giving providers, making their opinions more than a bit biased. It can be difficult to wade through the maze of options, taking into account transaction fees, ease of use and more. But increasingly, churches are looking for ways to connect their parishioners with opportunities to support the congregation through online giving, whether it’s through regular electronic funds transfers or one-time gifts around Christmas.
We’ve rounded up for you a non-comprehensive list of providers, as well as some helpful articles and info. But we want to hear from you: How has your church approached online giving? What are your biggest concerns? Do you have any recommended providers our blog posts to add to our list?
