Fortunately for church administrators everywhere, they don’t have to try and create a highly-functional church on their own. Instead, they can utilize church management software to help their church excel by saving their administrators valuable time, streamlining accounting functions, and keeping updated, accurate information on all your church members.

Today, we’ll focus specifically on how church management software can help increase tithing online for churches, as well as how they can create a more enriched sense of community throughout your church.
Let’s get into it!
How Church Management Software Can Increase Your Online Donations
There are many, many different types of church management software out there on the market today. Each software has its own core features and functions, so it’s important that you pay close attention to those when deciding on the right one for you and your church’s needs.
If one of your top priorities right now is increasing your donations, then finding a solution that incorporates online tithing capabilities is a must. Online tithing is a great way to improve your overall church donations.
While you can still use older tithing methods to keep the more traditional members involved, online tithing allows the more tech-savvy church members a more convenient avenue for tithing — especially when considering people tend to not carry around as much cash as they used to.
Online tithing can take many forms — one of which is text-to-give platforms. But, just how much more donations can a church expect to receive with an online or text-to-give solution?
Well, according to some reports, churches can expect an increase in anywhere from 25-38% in their donations by using online tithing methods, including text-to-give.
Simply put, the more avenues you have available for your congregation to donate, the more donations you’ll receive. Especially when these new avenues add an extra level of convenience for your members
Why mobileAxept’s Solutions Are Perfect For Increasing Your Church’s Donations
Here at mobileAxept, we offer three church management solutions that prioritize engagement, connectivity, and online tithing.
With ReachNow, church administrators can easily send any message, anytime to their church members’ smartphones. Why is this important? Well, the alternative to sending upcoming event reminders, donation inquiries, and other important information to your congregation is through email or by posting it on your church’s website. You can’t always count on them opening up their emails — which have relatively low open rates, especially when compared to text messages. And you also can’t expect your church members to frequently check your website for updates.
Enter ReachNow, which allows you to draft and schedule your messages so you don’t have to worry about manually sending them. So, whenever you need to make a big donation push or need to spread the word about news and events, ReachNow is the perfect tool for your church.
