Stewardship & Planned Giving

Wednesday, October 9
1:00 – 2:00 p.m. (Eastern)
Presented by: Jim MacDonald, Development Manager, Stewardship & Planned Giving

You’ve been building a culture of generosity in your congregation and people want to give. It’s time to make it as easy as possible for them to do so in an era when we’re told that one-third of individuals under the age of 50 make no purchases using cash.

This webinar will compare the costs, features and benefits of fundraising services that make online donation easy: Tithe.ly, CanadaHelps.org and iATSPayments.com. We’ll also look at the church marketing and management services: Micharity.com, PushPay.com and PlanningCenter.com. For in-church giving, we’ll talk about Square Reader and other payment companies that offer point-of-sale terminals. While a few companies offer simple methods to enable eGiving in your church, others are surprisingly complex, requiring expertise and customization that many churches may find challenging. This webinar will make recommendations that help you decide which service will best serve your church’s unique circumstances.
