It’s no secret that an increasing number of ministries are updating their donation management and pledge-based systems to utilize new technologies. Some are using gateway services provided by banks or credit unions, while others use web-based services like PayPal to provide online giving and electronic giving options to their givers. Coordinating those kinds of services with their existing financial management systems can be cumbersome, at best.
While such secular services can prove helpful for occasional uses, they fall short of providing the kind of full-service, ministry-minded tools and support which eGiving offers. Begun as a ministry to ministries, we desire to help your ministry achieve its potential for Christ.
Coordination Across Technologies
One of the many benefits of using eGiving is that, unlike many similar technologies, our tools are all completely web-based in nature. That means no software, no updates, no strings — or wires — attached. You can access your giver accounts anywhere you can get online. This kind of thinking turns out to be futuristic, here in what some are calling “The Year of the Cloud.” Not only are eGiving tools web-based, but they’re also designed to “play well with others,” allowing you to retain your existing financial management software. We already offer giver tracking and receipting functions that can be imported into various systems, and we’re working on custom links to popular software such as Ministry Sync, QuickBooks, Ekyros, Way Cool, and Microsoft products.
Opportunity To Minister
Part of the reason we’ve designed our tools to be software-free, with the kind of flexibility we have, is that our aim is not to get you to purchase more tools but to empower you for greater ministry. When your staff is no longer spending as much time learning new systems, working on fundraisers, and keeping track of donations, they’ll be free to pursue more Kingdom-centered avenues of ministry. We truly see eGiving.com as a ministry to ministries, helping Christian ministries like yours reach your potential to impact the Kingdom of Christ. As such, we do not offer our giving technology tools a la carte: They’re part of a ministry-priced package deal that includes thorough training and support from our fully Christian, American staff.
Ongoing Counsel and Support
The support we provide begins with initial training, but it certainly doesn’t end there. We know each ministry is unique, so we customize our recommendations for your ministry, relevant even for non-web natives. We also offer tips for strategically implementing our tools as part of a thriving eMinistry, something more and more ministries are seeing to be fruitful, both financially and spiritually. As you begin your relationship with eGiving.com, you’ll be asked to describe your ministry goals and vision, so we can make suggestions that will assist us in knowing how to help you implement our tools most effectively.
As you look at the various types of donation management tools and desire to enable your givers to make use of electronic giving and online giving tools, we hope you’ll allow eGiving to minister to your needs.
Since 2000, eGiving has served to assist in funding Christian ministries with effective strategies & tools of electronic giving (recurring & online giving). eGiving serves both churches as well as para-church ministries (including schools, pregnancy centers, missions, and works of mercy).
