By now your church certainly can accept donations via your Web site. (Right?). But has your parish made it easy for your supporters to give money via smartphones? If not, you better start thinking about it, as this is becoming a preferred method of parting with cash among tech-savvy Christians. Rob Hoskins writes:
Barna Group studied how technology is affecting Millennials and their faith, and revealed that,
“Another way to spark Millennial giving is to reach them where they are, which in many cases, is on their mobile phones. Nearly one out of every 10 of all Millennials say they text to donate at least once a month, which doubles among practicing Christian Millennials to two out of 10.”
Hoskins goes on to recommend a mobile giving program called Kindrid. Check it out.
