Have you heard of an electronic giving solution? While keeping up with the fast pace of society and technological advancements, it is easy to feel like you are behind the times and it is impossible to catch up Although sending a basket down the pews after mass or church is always a way to receive donations for your church, it is not a likely way to collect large donations
The only thing becoming less popular than cash is checks, and this day in age it is all about online banking and being able to send money quickly If your church already has a website, the hard part is taken care of; setting up a donation page is simple and can be very rewarding for future endeavors
When taking into account all of the reasons why online donations can help your church, remember it is a lot easier for your convocation to give in the comfort of their own home
