Three-tap giving

Tools to help your congregation grow in their giving 

Givelify offers various features to encourage giving among your congregation, including anywhere, anytime giving, the Champions of Good program, and options for reminders and recurring giving. These features enable your congregants to give according to their heart’s desire, track their giving journey, and experience the joy of giving consistently. 

Anytime, anywhere giving 

With anytime, anywhere giving, your congregation can support your organization no matter where they are. Whether they attend a service in person, watch a livestream from home, or travel abroad, Givelify makes it easy for your donors to give whenever they feel called. 

Champions of Good 

The Champions of Good program recognizes generosity among your congregation. Donors reach different giving milestones, from Silver to Diamond, with each gift they make. This program celebrates donors along their journey and encourages them to make new strides in their giving. Since its launch, donors in the program were more likely to make three more gifts, worth an average of $400, to their places of worship than the previous year. 

Reminders and recurring giving 

Donor-giving options provide flexibility and convenience for your congregation. Reminders gently nudge donors whenever they choose so they can stay in control and feel the joy of giving without committing to automatic withdrawals. With recurring donations, congregants can automate their contributions, choosing to give weekly, biweekly, or monthly — ensuring a steady stream of support for your place of worship.
