Q: How can my ministry increase donations from new and existing supporters?
A: Use mobile solutions to strengthen all faith based fundraising programs by making donating and staying involved convenient.

Faith Based Orgs Face Aging Donors
Many faith-based organizations are still trying to return to pre-recession donation levels. In particular, smaller organizations – especially mission ministries – are struggling to maintain fundraising revenue. One of the main issues is an aging donor base. These groups tend to tailer communications for baby boomer and greatest gen donors. Additionally, many ministries are losing supporters to other ministries in which they feel more engaged.
Competing Fundraising Philosophies
Many faith-based organizations believe that moving donors into higher giving levels is the best way to increase donations, while others believe new donor acquisition is the most important aspect of fundraising. Mobile solutions empower ministries to both attract new supporters and re-engage existing supporters.
