How Faith-Based Fundraising Can Be Strengthened with Mobile Solutions

Use mobile solutions to strengthen all faith-based fundraising programs by making donating and staying involved convenient.

Worth noting, many faith-based organizations gain the majority of their financial support from outside direct communities including government funding, endowments, and secular organizations. Mobile solutions can dramatically lessen faith-based organizations’ dependence on outside funding thus stabilizing operations for the long term.

Faith-Based Orgs Face Aging Donors

Many faith-based organizations are still trying to return to pre-recession donation levels. In particular, smaller organizations – especially mission ministries – are struggling to maintain fundraising revenue. One of the main issues is an aging donor base. These groups tend to tailor communications for baby boomers and greatest gen donors. Additionally, many ministries are losing supporters to other ministries in which they feel more engaged.

Competing Fundraising Philosophies

Many faith-based organizations believe that moving donors into higher giving levels is the best way to increase donations, while others believe new donor acquisition is the most important aspect of fundraising. Mobile solutions empower ministries to both attract new supporters and re-engage existing supporters.

What our clients say

We needed a platform to make sales online and to track and display ads for our sponsors. GiveSmart was perfect. We ended up making close to $15,000 more than we had hoped for. Definite better ROI than we anticipated. The interface is easy to use and provides plenty of options to get help if needed.

Using GS has created ease in auction bookkeeping, payments, and generating post-event thank you/tax letters. While we were online during COVID, our interactions with our GiveSmart via phone, email, and zoom were seamless. A representative always got back to us within the day. I would recommend GiveSmart to anyone doing a large online event.

GiveSmart is highly flexible - you can use it for [a] simple registration and check-in, to full-scale galas with complex order forms, onsite upsells, live auctions, seating management, and more.

GiveSmart is easy to use and ideal for virtual events and can be used for in-person events to manage the silent auction, seating charts, and check-in to the event. Being able to use the platform for unlimited events within the contract year is very useful and being able to add other users and volunteers for different levels of access is helpful as well.
