Did you know that up to one third of all annual giving takes place in December? Charitable donations see a massive increase during the holidays, and that’s why it’s so important to have a digital giving solution that creates a quick and simple experience for your donors.

Special campaigns and fundraisers are common during the holidays, and this makes it a great time to set up funds and causes in Subsplash Giving.

Christmas also presents an ideal opportunity for introducing text-to-give, which allows donors to set up a gift using a simple SMS text code. This is especially effective for first-time visitors, who may be eager to give but haven’t yet downloaded your app. To get started, create your text-to-give code in your dashboard, or learn more about Subsplash Giving!

This is also an effective way to stay in touch with the many first-time visitors that attended your Christmas services. Even after they’ve left, you can continue to encourage and engage them with gospel content.
