8 Mobile-Friendly Platforms and Apps for Church Giving in 2024

A church-giving program is only as good as the tools it uses. You might have the best strategy to increase your church giving, but if you don’t have the platform or app to back it up, your success will be limited.

The big trend for 2024 and, well, forever moving forward? Mobile giving. Your church needs to be able to accept donations from a mobile phone or you’ll be missing out on over 28% of online donations that are made on mobile!

That’s why we’ve compiled eight great mobile-friendly platforms and apps for churches in 2024. Let’s first understand exactly why mobile-friendly giving tools are so vital for churches right now.

Why are Mobile-Friendly Platforms & Apps Important in 2024?

Smartphones are everywhere. In 2024, it’s estimated that 6.8 billion people will use smartphones globally. The result of this is a significant increase in demand for mobile giving.

Churches are no exception either. According to Double the Donation, the number of mobile transactions increased by 50% last year – and desktop transactions decreased by 10%.

What does this mean for churches?

Churches already have a unique position when it comes to fundraising, with the bulk of their fundraising occurring in person. But it is important to note that time has changed and people no longer carry cash to their church. The above stats are indicative of that.

When you offer people a way to make donations quickly via their mobile phones, they feel more empowered to support your church! And that is why church apps and giving platforms are so vital for church fundraising.

In an increasingly cashless world, having scalable, easy-to-manage ways for congregants to give with their mobile devices means maintaining – and significantly increasing – your church’s weekly fundraising goals.

Donorbox makes it easy for your church to offer a great mobile-giving experience to your supporters. We have features like Text-to-Give, UltraSwift ™ Pay, and more that encourage church congregants to use their mobiles to quickly make a donation. Here’s a live example from a mobile-friendly church crowdfunding page hosted on Donorbox.

Our review

Gyve’s focus remains on its strong reporting and management tools. However, some of their unique giving concepts like split donation and guest giving can grab the attention of churchgoers.

Our review

The Church App can be great for churches looking to build up their digital presence. However, it lacks diversity in terms of available giving tools and a holistic approach to church fundraising.
