Beyond the advantages shown in the videos, take a closer look at what happens when a church implements recurring giving:

  • Gifts flow directly from your givers’ bank accounts (or credit cards) into your church’s bank account
  • No more manually entering gifts into a spreadsheet or database software
  • Giving is automated, reliable, and cash flow becomes steadier from one month to the next
  • Recurring giving reports provide clear data for planning
  • Ministry leaders can confidently budget for future events and outreach opportunities

Plus, recurring giving dramatically reduces time spent on reporting and year-end statements. This frees up your finance team to focus on other necessary and essential tasks.
