Online and Mobile Giving: A Match Made in Heaven

The love between two people is a magical thing. When the perfect pair gets together, they are like a beacon of light and love to the world around them. It’s hard to be pessimistic about love and relationships when you see positive, healthy relationships blossom before your eyes.

We are naturally inclined to appreciate great pairings. That isn’t limited to personal relationships, either. We enjoy seeing anything pair well. From a great meal paired with the perfect wine to a spectacular handbag that brings an outfit together, some things are simply made for each other.

Online and mobile giving are one such perfect pair.

They Help You Cover All Your Bases

You have a variety of supporters, and they all prefer to give in different ways. Some like to drop cash in a donation box. Some want to use their smartphones. Some would prefer to give from the comfort of home, on their personal computer.

To make sure that all of your donors are comfortable with giving to your organization, you need to have options that suit all of their differing preferences. With both online and mobile giving in your lineup, you can cater to the needs of every supporter. This will not only make your donors happy, but they will be more likely to give regularly — which will result in more funds for your nonprofit.

Online and Mobile Giving, Joined At the Hip

The pairing of online and mobile giving gets even better when the two are linked. This can happen when both giving options come from the same provider. For example, Givelify offers both mobile and online giving, and the information between both platforms is connected.

This means that when you access the dashboard to view your donations, you will see information from both online and mobile giving in the same place. You don’t have to visit multiple websites to access donation or donor information for each platform. It’s all in one convenient location.

Just like our person-to-person relationships, online and mobile giving are at their best when they work together.
