01 Jun Three Big Benefits of Text Giving for Churches
You’ve no doubt noticed that people today are relying on their phones for, well, just about everything. There are both plusses and minuses to this trend. But for church administration, one of the benefits is that engaging with members through texting works very well.
Text giving, in particular, has been shown to be remarkably effective. Here are three major benefits of using a tool like mobileAxept to establish and increase both recurring and ad-hoc donations from more members.
1. Friction Free Giving
No more shuffling through endless forms and crossing your fingers that no checks have gone missing. Text-to-give makes giving easy for both you and your donors. With mobileAxept, donors enter their demographic and payment information. It literally takes less time than writing a check and never has to be done again. So, no matter where your donors are when they hear about your church’s latest campaign, they can donate quickly and easily. No cash? No problem! No one leaves home without their phone these days. Your donors just send a simple text, and their donation and its fund designation are added to their giving history in your secure donor administration system.
2. On the Go Giving & Communication
Text giving allows your members to make a donation from anywhere at any time. It also allows them to set and forget recurring payments. So, donations keep coming, even during those lean summer months when it feels like everyone is out of town. Not only that, but if your church starts a new campaign or needs to send a fundraiser update, you can send out text notifications whenever needed.
3. Highest-Level Security
Cybersecurity is definitely at the forefront of many people’s minds these days. Fortunately, both you and your donors can rest easy, because mobileAxept’s text-to-give technology is entirely secure. Bank card information is encrypted and tokenized, and our payment processor holds the highest safety level by the Payment Card Industry (Level 1 compliant).
Text giving offers these benefits and so many more. If your church has used text giving in the past and didn’t see great results, you’ll be amazed at the mobileAxept difference. mobileAxept churches enjoy, on average, a 32% increase in donations. If your church hasn’t yet used text giving, this is the tool you really need to try. For more information or to get started, contact sales.
