1. TIPS FOR UPDATING YOUR CHURCH WEBSITE TO MAKE AN IMPACT 


2. PROMOTE DEBIT AND ACH 

Most congregations respond to information that their Debit Card and Checking Account keep the fees low for your ministry. However, Credit Cards and Rewards Cards are usually more substantial gifts and used for recurring giving more often. And we see new people start to give if it’s easy and not too restrictive. 

So, balancing easy giving and keep the fees down requires some thought. 

The average good church member misses 14 offerings per year, and they do not make them up. So making it easy to give, in multiple ways, especially recurring, is worth it. 

Only you all can know what’s best for your congregation. 



3. EDUCATE EVERYWHERE ON THE MANY WAYS TO GIVE 

We recommend that on your website, email, church bulletin, any announcements, and any other way information is sent to your donors that you educate them on Waze and all the ways that they can get. 

One vital way to do this is on your website. Use our giving the buttons to show them the different ways that they can give. Reminding them that there’s more than one way leads to more donations and offerings. 

Here’s an example:

7. PROMOTE TEXT GIVING 

For Gold and Platinum Plans 

Text Giving allows anyone to give by sending a text message with a dollar amount and automatically charging their card on file. 

Share your text to giving number with your donors. They text the amount they want to donate to your number. 

When they fill out the mobile form texted back to them, you receive the donation. It's that easy! 

Donate to see how it works by putting an amount in the text, like 10, then text to that number and follow the instructions. Then make a second donation by texting an amount, like 5, and see how easy it is. 

Some young adults need this information: 

How Text Giving works compared to using Cash Apps:

Place this information on your website or email it:

Tips for Updating Your Church Website to Make an Impact 

Make sure your church’s website is clear and setup to make giving easy and fast! 

Your giving page is where your church’s vision becomes actionable. Don’t overlook this opportunity to engage donors! Plus, if you don’t intentionally showcase giving on your website, you may lose givers in a maze of pages, ultimately frustrating their desire to be generous. 


A - Make it Easy to Give 

Here are some crucial components to an effective giving page. 

1. Online Giving Button/Link 

Update your online giving page with your giving buttons or link. Include a simple explanation that helps people understand what they can do. For example: 

"To make a secure, one-time or recurring gift, click the button/link. For enhanced security and giving simplicity, create an account by clicking on the login/signup link in the top right corner." 


2. Text Giving Instructions 

Clearly display your church's text giving number + instructions. Say something similar to: "Securely make a gift by texting to [YOUR TEXT GIVING #]. You’ll only have to enter your information the first time. Don’t forget to save our giving number in your phone! 


3 - Talk about Security 

Consider adding security information like “All donations are secure and encrypted.” 


B - Cast a Vision 

Honor the sanctity of giving. Giving is a sacred space. Make sure your website doesn’t treat giving like a transaction. Treat giving as an act of worship. Remind your church why we’re called to give. 

Include your church’s giving philosophy. Is there a certain passage of scripture that your church uses for stewardship? 


C - Share results of generosity. 

Trust is the cornerstone of relationships. If you want people to give relationally, it begins with trust. Donors (and potential donors) are wondering, How exactly is my giving being used? Is it really making a difference? What happened from that special offering last month?
