Over the last few months, we've launched our embeddable calendar for websites, we've released the shiny new Rotas module, and today we're ready to reveal our latest creation - the new Giving module! A lot of people have been waiting for this, and we're delighted to have had significant input from some customers who have been testing it over the last few weeks too.
Feedback throughout development has been incredible, and we're convinced this is yet another way that ChurchApp is helping churches save time and operate more efficiently. In fact, one of our customers who has been involved with testing said this: I wouldn't be exaggerating when I say that I will save literally hours on processing gift aid claims! — brilliant, that's precisely why we got into this business!
So, without further ado, here is some of the stuff the Giving module can handle for your church:
Build a giving profile for your givers, which includes their gift aid declaration and their giving pledges. See which funds Givers have pledged to give to - useful whether you're doing a building project or sending a missionary abroad.
Simply upload your bank statement and link gifts to givers and funds. Next time you upload your bank statement, ChurchApp will have learned and will start to suggest givers and funds for the uploaded donations, which makes your job of reconciling the bank statement much faster!
Claiming gift aid is really, really simple — the way it should be! Choose a date range and ChurchApp will prepare a gift aid claim for you, ready to be submitted to HMRC. And when the time comes when one of your church members is willing to back-date their new gift aid claim to all their gifts in the last three years, don't worry - ChurchApp can sort that out too! It is often the case that making it easy to claim gift aid means that more is claimed - can you afford not to use ChurchApp Giving?
All of this is just a taste of what ChurchApp Giving can do for your church. To find out more, visit our church giving pages!
