When I recently asked a church how they liked their new Online Giving program, they responded with “its like getting a 5th Sunday in every month!”. I’ll take that as a good indication they’re happy with their program. By tradition, Catholics give to their church every week. Actually, and unfortunately, Catholics tend to give to their church the weeks they actually attend mass. With the average catholic family attending mass only 40 times out of the year, guess how many times they’re giving to your church?
Right now a survey that my company did suggest that only about 30% of Catholic Churches have an online giving system. My guess is that in 5 years that number will (and should!) be closer to 90%. If you’re church doesn’t yet have an online giving system, check out the list of vendors we’ve compiled here, http://catholictechtalk.com/giving-solutions.
In this day an age, chances are the only check you’re writing is to your church and maybe your children’s school. Take a look at an Online Giving provider today. Its like getting a 5th Sunday in every month!
