Oh, the Places You’ll Give

Giving is important to you, and you love to consistently support your favorite place of worship or nonprofit organization. But every so often, issues will arise that prevent you from being on site to give. Thankfully, mobile giving travels alongside you everywhere you go. You will never have to miss an opportunity to give again.

When You’re On the Road or in the Air

Think your big family vacation to Hawaii is going to keep you from giving to your home church or favorite nonprofit? Worried that your constant business trips will get in the way of your charitable donations? They don’t have to, thanks to mobile giving.

Unless you are in the driver’s seat, you can use your smartphone to make a donation at any time, from any location. Just landed at the airport in Hawaii? Visiting family a few states away? Taking a road trip with your friends? No matter where you travel, mobile giving goes with you.

When Inclement Weather Strikes

Weather is unpredictable, and no matter where you live, some type of storm or natural disaster could keep you away from church or fundraisers with very little notice. If an event or service gets cancelled due to poor weather conditions, how will you show your support?

You may plan on making up for it at church next week, or by sending a check in the mail — but what if it slips your mind? What if you become occupied with your busy schedule and never remember to make a contribution? Instead of waiting, use mobile giving to make good on your best intentions on the spot. Simply pull out your phone and give.

When Illness, Injury, or Other Plans Get in the Way

Caught the flu and stuck in bed during church? Run into trouble on your way to a nonprofit fundraising event and end up at home nursing a sore ankle? These are not regular occurrences, but illnesses and injuries do happen from time to time. With mobile giving on your side, you can still make a donation or offering, even if you can’t physically be present.

Double-booked for the night of the big fundraiser for the organization you love to support? Take a few moments during your other appointment to pull out your phone and donate. You can’t physically be in two places at once, but your money can.

What has kept you from giving in the past? Now that you have mobile giving, nothing will have to keep you from supporting your favorite causes again.
