In short, Why Electronic Giving is Useful
Online fundraising is incredibly useful for the following reasons:
- It saves your team both time and money;
- It improves donor relations; and
- It expands your reach of who can donate
Getting your players out into the community to raise money for a good cause is important for building character and team unity. Online fundraising is simply an additional way to increase donations!
In like manner, from a donor’s perspective, online giving has its unique benefits too! Some of which are:
1. Ease of Giving
Once a donor decides to give, they want it to be as easy and quick as possible. Online fundraising offers this option with website donation forms and text giving. This convenience is why online giving continues to grow.
2. Keeping Personal Information Safe
Electronic giving is safer for donors than traditional paper checks. You don’t hand over a paper check to a stranger giving them access to your name, address, bank name, routing number, and bank account number. In contrast, your information is encrypted and safe.
3. Setting up recurring donations.
Donors who want to continue supporting an organization find this option convenient. Many people appreciate the opportunity to choose to give a certain amount weekly/monthly with a single click instead of donating every month on their own.
