Recurring electronic giving solutions can revolutionize your ministry’s approach to fundraising, receipting, budgeting — really, to all things financial. As a Christian ministry, there are unique aspects to your financial situation that make a ministry-minded organization the ideal source of your recurring electronic giving tools. There are four main ways we can uniquely impact your ministry’s finances through our EFT-based recurring giving.
First, this method of securing donations is far more reliable than non-electronic means of support. Instead of relying on faulty memories and year-long commitments, you can embrace the same program that offers an average of 95% retention 5 years after givers sign on to support your ministry. The funds flow directly from their checking account to your ministry account at the frequency designated — often monthly or quarterly — until or unless they contact you to make a change. Worries over paper checks going missing or memory lapses on the parts of givers can become a thing of the past, along with expensive annual fundraisers designed to re-enlist the help of last year’s financial partners via renewed pledges.
The second way that eGiving.com ministers to your ministry is by offering more than just a tech tool similar to the remedial gateway services offered by most banks. Instead, we provide a ministry-minded partnership that includes thorough training, guidance in strategic implementation, and continual prayer and tech support — all from our fully Christian, American staff. As Kingdom-focused followers of Christ, we have a vested interest in helping your ministry make an impact, and we realize that securing the needed funds is part of that equation.
The third way eGiving.com is different is that we encourage implementing our tools within the context of relationships. While we serve both churches and Christian parachurch organizations, we realize that there is a relational aspect to all ministries. For those whose financial partners don’t meet together on a regular basis like churches do, this can be especially challenging. When your eGiving program is part of a larger eMinistry, though, it can actually increase the potential for relational communication with your partners.
Did you know that some parachurch ministries spend upwards of 25% of their budgets on fundraising for the following year? As a ministry ourselves, we understand the unique set of priorities that ministries embrace. Instead of being out to make money, the fundraising aspect of your organization is a “necessary evil,” in a way. At eGiving.com, we desire to provide a set of tools and services that allow you to avoid unnecessary fundraising and administrative activities so you can focus on achieving your Kingdom vision. When finances are constantly lacking or unsteady, the constant reworking of budgets, cutting of costs, and brainstorming about additional streams of funding can sap the energy we’d rather see you use toward ministry.
