Are You Reaching Your Giving Goals?

Winston Churchill once said, “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” This statement is backed up by science as many studies have proven the positive relationship between giving and happiness.

Because of your passion for giving, you want to make sure that you always meet the giving goals you set for yourself. Find out how mobile giving can help you stay on track.

No More Broken Promises

How to Reach Your Mobile Giving Goals

Many charities request pledges from their donors, asking you to fill out a card promising to make a donation at some point in the future. Unfortunately, people often forget to follow through on their pledges. By not giving right then and there, you run the risk of missing the opportunity to give altogether.

If you use mobile giving, on the other hand, you don’t have to fill out a card and wait to give—you can pull out your phone and make a donation on the spot. You don’t have the option of forgetting to follow through.

Don’t make a pinky promise and expect that “future you” will make sure the donation gets made. To make sure you reach your giving goals, use mobile giving to donate right away.

Track Your Mobile Givingmobile giving history

To ensure that you meet your goal, you first need to keep track of how much you are giving. Thankfully, mobile giving makes tracking your donations easier than ever. You can easily see how much you have given and how much more you need to donate to reach your goal.

Because mobile giving allows you to give to multiple organizations using the same app, you can even track giving to all the organizations you support in one easy-to-access location. You will never have to track down giving receipts again. Instead, you can view your giving history in a single glance.

Set Up Recurring Donations

If you have a set amount in mind you would like to give on a weekly or monthly basis, you can utilize a mobile giving app to set up automatic, recurring donations. This is similar to automatic bill pay, but for charitable giving.

Recurring Mobile Giving

You only have to set it up once, and from then on, your giving will always go out as scheduled. Thanks to mobile giving, you can rest assured that your donations are going out according to plan.

Never Miss an Opportunity to Give

If you aren’t able to attend a fundraising event or worship service, you often can’t show your support by making a donation. You have to be there in person, bring cash or checks, and put it directly in the bin or collection plate. If you get sick or travel out of town, you can’t attend and aren’t able to make a donation that you otherwise would.

Unfortunately, these traditional methods can make it hard for you to give as regularly as you desire and make it difficult to keep up with your giving goals. But with a mobile giving app, you can always give, even if you can’t be on site. No matter where you go, as long as you carry your smartphone, you can still make a donation.

Thanks to mobile giving, you no longer have to miss a chance to support your favorite charity or place of worship. Now that you have the opportunity to give from anywhere, at any time, you will never have to miss your giving goals again.
