So yesterday, we discussed the Hope United La case study, that showed you exactly how they increased giving by 80% while doubling the number of givers.
Here’s another great resource to reference if you are trying to make this case at your local church.
Based on working on the pilot project as well as my experience implementing digital solutions for churches, Frank asked me to write a guest post on Tithe.ly.
I discussed how to Grow Church Giving By Going Mobile and Using these 5 Best Practices
Here’s the deal!
Several studies show that, 74 percent of all Americans write less than one check per month while 61 percent of those under 25 never write checks!
Couple all that with the fact that 80 percent of Americans carry less than $50 in their pockets at any given time and you have a perfect storm … one that is shifting the way people give from traditional cash and check to mobile.
Not to long ago, 1990 to be exact, cash and check payments made of 84% of the mix. Today, cash and check make up 18% of the payments mix – meaning, folks now use credit and debit 82% of the time they make a payment.
So people are carrying less cash and using checks far less, but what is replacing those methods of payment?
Check out my guest post as I dive into the why, what and how to implement an effective giving strategy for your church.
