If your ministry is not taking donations online, now is a great time to start. Setting up online giving in ChurchTrac can be done in just a few minutes!
This saves you a great deal of time in keeping track of all your giving transactions. You don't need to manually add or import transactions from a third party into the ChurchTrac Giving Screen.
There are many risks when handling cash donations. The most obvious of these risks is theft. On top of theft, you often have money changing hands between many people. This requires a heavy amount of accountability for all the people involved. Online Giving minimizes theft and eliminates the changing of hands.
When you make it easy for your people to give, they tend to give more abundantly. This comes in the form of larger one-time donations and more regular giving.
Churches and ministries that make online giving available to their people typically experience an increase in overall giving. And just because you have online giving doesn't mean that you stop passing the offering plate. Online giving gives your people another option that is quick, easy, and convenient.
ChurchTrac doesn't charge anything for online giving (unlike other companies that charge you a monthly fee just to enable online giving PLUS processing fees). Your only cost is the processing fee that Stripe will charge for each transaction - about 3% for credit card transactions, or a flat $0.25 for each ACH (e-check) transaction. We also include text giving at no extra charge.
People of all ages give online. In fact, the largest segment of online donors is over the age of 50!
Online Giving can be set up for your ministry in just a couple minutes. Once you have your account setup and people start giving online, you will start to see your first deposit into your bank account within a few business days.
We've made Online Giving so easy to use that even non-tech people will be able to master it quickly. Whether they're giving once, setting up recurring giving, or checking their giving history, all your people will be able to navigate things quickly.
We've never spoken to a ministry that did not see a positive change in their overall giving after using ChurchTrac Online Giving.
