6 Ways Givelify Helps Your Church Save Money

Ideally, places of worship wouldn’t need money to operate—but you have bills and salaries to pay, just like any other organization. Because donations from your members fully support your church, it’s always a good idea to look for ways to save money.

Using the Givelify church giving app, your place of worship can hold onto precious resources that allow you to complete the good work you do in your community.

1. Pay Less for the Best

Example Givelify Fees

By using Givelify, you can offer your congregation a modern giving alternative while spending less than you would with other platforms.

While any church giving app will involve some cost, Givelify is unique in charging no monthly or sign-up fees—EVER. Our only fee is a low 2.9% plus 30 cents per transaction. This fee is among the lowest available for similar money transfer services.

Because we care about our member organizations and donors, we do all we can to keep costs low.

2. Bypass Church Giving App Development Costs

Some places of worship invest time and money in creating and maintaining their own apps, which include giving as a feature. But most churches can’t afford to spend the money it takes to develop a brand new app, nor do they have the resources to pay someone else to do it for them.

With the Givelify church giving app, your ministry can avoid all those costs while reaping the benefits. Instead of putting in the work and resources yourself, you can use an already existing app that works with any church, place of worship, or 501(c)3 nonprofit in the United States.

3. Built-In Support Staff

Givelify also provides free support for your team and your supporters. You do not have to hire a support team to help your members learn how to use a church giving app or troubleshoot issues that arise. Instead, you can direct them to our trained experts if you like.

Both you and your supporters can visit our support websites 24 hours a day, seven days a week. To read through answers to our most frequently asked questions or contact us directly for assistance,  visit our Online Support Site.

4. Avoid Rental/Maintenance Fees

Some churches use giving kiosks to accept offerings. Unfortunately, these kiosks can disrupt service by creating long lines, and churches have to pay rental and maintenance costs for the kiosks themselves.

The Givelify church giving app provides a more convenient way to give that works better for the flow of service—and it does so without any pesky maintenance and rental costs.

5. Don’t Pay For a Separate Online/Website Giving SolutionGivelify Online Giving

In today’s technologically prosperous society, having an online option is a must for every congregation. But why pay for a separate online giving solution for your website when you can provide an even better experience to your supporters for free?

Givelify allows organizations to add a Givelify online giving button to their website, which means you won’t have to pay another provider for a website giving solution. Plus, your organization’s giving records, whether made through the app or your website, will be tracked together in one location for your convenience.

6. No Risk of Lost or Mishandled Funds

When dealing with money, the risk of theft or simple human error is always present. But with the Givelify app, your donations are never put into human hands. They are all automatically deposited directly into your church bank account, ensuring that funds stay safe. There is no chance of funds being lost or mishandled.

Givelify offers your members an effortless way to give and protects your finances, all while helping your church save money. Adding this modern giving method is a win-win for everyone involved.
