How to Start A Church Recurring Giving Program

Whether your church is large or small, chances are your leadership has expressed some interest in focusing on church giving. The landscape of church giving continues to change, seeming sometimes less hopeful and sometimes very hopeful. Churches everywhere are finding innovative ways to keep the funds flowing so they can keep serving their communities. 

A recurring giving program is an excellent way to ensure a steady stream of donations throughout the year. It’s also convenient for donors, who can give or tithe on a regular basis without having to bring cash or their checkbook to Sunday services. 

But how do you create a program like that? And how to you get more people to participate in it? Here are a few steps to get you started: 

  1. Get your church leadership on board. It’s important that everyone who makes decisions at your church understands what recurring giving is and why it’s so vital.
  2. Choose the right tool for the job. Donorbox makes recurring giving easy for both you and your donors. Simply choose up to four donation intervals to offer on your donation form; choose from daily, weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, quarterly, or annual donations. Then choose a default interval and your preferred interval, which is marked with a heart.

    Once your donors create a recurring gift, their card or bank account will be charged the same amount every interval they chose. They can log in to their Donorbox account at any time to update their payment method, change their giving amount or interval, or cancel their gift.

    The right tool helps you automate the recurring giving process – which is crucial if you have a small team!
