One of the biggest barriers to church member giving is the time and effort it takes to set up the donations. When members need to navigate complicated online banking systems with outdated interfaces in order to make a simple donation, it turns what should be an act of generosity into an onerous task that may well end up gathering dust on some mental to-do list!
With ChurchApp Donate we’ve gone to great lengths to make sure our giving module is as easy and straightforward to use as the rest of our system, including a streamlined interface and full integration with existing ChurchApp accounts.
This overcomes the main obstacle that stands between your members and their ability to give wholeheartedly and generously.
ChurchApp is fully optimised for use on desktops, smartphones and tablet devices - allowing access to a simple and intuitive online giving system across a whole range of devices. In other words, ChurchApp enables your church members to give immediately using the device in their pocket.
It takes less than no time for church members to set up a donation: simply click on the Donate button on the church website and fill how much you want to donate. If your email is already on our system the rest of your details will be filled out automatically. From there, simply enter your account details and you’re all set.
ChurchApp Donate enables you to give when you want, where you want with SMS giving built for the smartphone age that lets you set-up both one-off and recurring donations without being tied down to a traditional computer. Now your members don’t have to wait until they get home to arrange donations, with ChurchApp Donate via SMS they can do it straight away.
The ChurchApp Donate online giving system for churches is fully integrated with ChurchApp’s Giving module, which has numerous benefits:
In addition, ChurchApp Donate is fully compatible with the Giving Funds you set up in ChurchApp, which allows your givers to mark a donation for a special offering or the building fund accordingly, saving you hours of admin effort.
Offerings made through Donate will be logged along with other donations as part of a church member’s Giver Profile, allowing you to easily keep track of all their charitable giving in one place. Need to send out a statement of donations to a church member? With ChurchApp, this is the work of a few seconds.
Making a Gift Aid declaration is as simple as ticking a box with ChurchApp, while making Gift Aid claims is a breeze.
By making it easier to reclaim Gift Aid, ChurchApp both saves you lots of time and effort, as well as making it easier for your church members to sign a Gift Aid declaration. All of which helps to ensure that you get the most out of every donation.
When it comes to web services, we all make judgements based on looks. If a system is poorly designed, difficult to use, or looks like it was built in 1999, people are less likely to use it. This is especially true when money is involved - if your online giving system doesn’t instil confidence, potential givers will be less likely to make use of it.
With ChurchApp Donate you will have access to a smart, professional system that has been designed to be as pleasing to the eye as it is quick and easy to use. ChurchApp can even be customised to include your church’s logo and colour scheme, helping to give your members confidence that they’re in safe hands.
ChurchApp supports payment by both credit and debit card, allowing your members the flexibility to give in the way that works best for them.
For customers in the UK, ChurchApp also supports Direct Debit, both for recurring as well as one-off donations, which greatly reduces the church’s admin load.
As ChurchApp continues to spread to more and more churches across the UK, EU, USA, Canada, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, we’re always on the lookout for ways to give our international customers the best service possible. Our integrated Stripe payment system accepts donations in 139 different currencies (a full list of which can be found here), ensuring that no matter where you are in the world, you’ll be able to give freely in the currency of your choice.
As with all ChurchApp modules, our church giving software is protected by a raft of security measures, each one dedicated to keeping your members’ data safe and secure:

Just so you know, it's currently Saturday at 4:55pm here in the UK, which means we're now closed for the weekend. Not to worry, we'll set up your account first thing Monday morning when the ChurchSuite office reopens.
I've been using ChurchSuite for about 3 months now, using the address book, rota and bookings modules (back office only so far). I've found all of them easy to use and it's great to be able to view the information in different ways depending on what you need to see. The bookings module is particularly helpful as we hire out 10 different rooms with a busy schedule of room hirers as well as church use.
It's easy to browse the menus for functions, there are helpful articles and tips, and the support team are really quick to respond if I do get stuck on something.
