Is it time to switch your online giving?

February 7, 2022

When it comes to stewarding your church finances, your leadership strives to be as wise and responsible as possible. Keeping a close eye on your church’s budget, tracking incoming donations as well as outgoing expenses—every chance to save is important! 

You also know how important it is to give your donors an online giving experience that makes it as simple and convenient as possible to give their tithes and gifts.  In fact, 94% of churches with over 100 members are already receiving donations online. 

Yet after all this work to be a good steward of your church finances, it’s troubling to find out that you’re most likely overpaying for your online giving service. The average processing fee for churches hovers around 2.9%, and that’s not including any monthly fees and other hidden fees. Some payment platforms even charge your church a higher processing rate as your online donation volume increases!

That’s why more churches than ever are switching to Subsplash Giving. Here are the four main reasons churches give for making the switch:  

1. No monthly or hidden fees

Unlike other giving platforms, with Subsplash Giving you’ll have the peace of mind knowing that your online giving has no monthly fees or hidden fees.

2. Money savings

Your processing rates automatically go down as your giving grows thanks to GrowCurve™. This can save a church hundreds to thousands of dollars each year! Just last year, churches using Subsplash Giving saved over $1 million dollars thanks to GrowCurve. 

3. Donor-Covered Fees

Your donors can choose to pay the processing fees for your church, allowing your church to keep 100% of their donations. When churches enable this feature in Subsplash Giving, an average of 36% of their donors choose this option, resulting in a huge savings every year! 

4. Integration with a bigger, more powerful platform

Subsplash Giving integrates with The Ultimate Engagement Platform™ that unifies all of your digital engagement tools like your church website, mobile app, live streaming, events, people management, and more!

It’s one thing to tell you why we think churches are switching, but it’s another thing to show you real-life examples of congregations telling their congregations in their own words why they have said goodbye to their old online giving companies! 

Get inspired by checking out these excellent examples of churches that have made the switch:

When switching to Subsplash Giving, one important best practice is to create a “Make the Switch” webpage with a brief explanation of why you’re switching, how this move is going to help your church better fulfill its mission, how to cancel recurring donations with your previous provider, how to easily set up a new Subsplash Giving account, and a deadline for when your church plans to fully switch over. Take it a step further with a personalized video of your pastor sharing these details. 

Now is the best time to switch your online giving, start saving money, and consolidate all of your digital engagement tools! Watch the following video to see exactly how we will guide you to help your congregation move over to Subsplash Giving with ease.
