If it’s that simple, why do only about a third of churches offer e-Giving? Maybe it’s because they don’t know what more than 20,000 Vanco customers already know:
Many churchgoers no longer carry a checkbook or much cash with them. A recent study by Bankrate.com reported that most Americans usually have less than $50 with them, and 40% have less than $20. e-Giving with a debit or credit card, text message or app allows them to respond more often and more generously.
“People really like that they can make their offering from their seat by taking out their smartphones.”
— Carla Visscher, Administrative Assistant, His Tabernacle Family Church
Many already pay bills electronically, and would prefer to give the same way. We surveyed 1,000 churchgoers and 60% of them told us they’d use e-Giving if their churches offered it.
“During a weekly group meeting, one of our members always gives online. If he didn’t have this option, he may not have become such a reliable giver.”
— Jeff Piehl,Constance Evangelical Free Church
