It's so important, I made a video telling the world about it 👇
But if you don't have time to watch, this post is the short and sweet version. There are 4 BIG reasons why your church needs to promote recurring giving. Let's cut right to the chase with the #1 reason...
Recurring donors give far more per year than one-time donors. Network for Good › found they give 42% more, to be exact.
This is reason enough to launch a recurring giving blitz at your church! But just to further convince you, here are a few more reasons why your church should embrace it:
I'm a millennial, so donating online is a given for me. But it's a myth › that only us young whippersnappers prefer it.
In a recent study › by Nonprofit Tech for Good found that a majority within all age groups (Boomers, Gen X, & Millenials) prefer giving online over all other giving methods. And in a more recent study › they found that 57% of all donors in North America, across all age groups, are enrolled in a recurring giving program.
Online giving is an established donation option. And the numbers suggest that as people discover recurring giving, they tend to prefer it.
The numbers don't lie. Your donors prefer recurring giving. Click below to see how easy it is to set up online giving with ChurchTrac.
This is the second biggest reason why you could see increased giving at your church. Recurring giving helps you maintain consistent income over a longer period of time.
In a study › by Classy, the average duration of a recurring gift was 13 months. That's a significant degree of donation capture! Churches that don't give this option to their members miss out on long-term, consistent giving.
