Encourage Repeat Donations to Your Church | Donorbox QuickDonate™

The average amount given by adults to churches in the U.S. is $17/week. This can be a significant source of a steady revenue stream for a church; but only when you make it easy for your congregation to repeat their donations weekly – online and without any hassle!

A crucial need of your online donors is convenience – they want to give quickly every time they’re asked to give. So forget passing the offering plate every week; and instead offer them a way to quickly repeat a previous donation to your church, right on the go!

This article will discuss how repeat donations help churches and how Donorbox QuickDonate ™ can make these donations quicker and simpler for you and your congregation.

How Do Repeat Donations Help Churches?

The inclusion of online giving has helped churches address attendance shortages and offer parishioners a more convenient way to give.

Your members and visitors also feel at peace knowing there’s an easier way to support their church when they’re no longer carrying cash or checks.

But with online giving comes the need for filling out a donation form every time. A donation form requires your supporters to complete a few crucial steps before they can make the payment. This can make some of them not want to give every week or every time they visit your church. Plus, not everyone would be comfortable signing up for recurring donations either.

What’s the solution? Simple – make it easy for one-time donors to repeat donations to your church online!

Your one-time donors should be able to quickly repeat their previous donations to your church. Without having to fill out a form again. But at the same time, they should have to power to make changes to their donation amounts or payment methods.

Donorbox QuickDonate ™ makes this a breeze for you – and your donors. Your one-time donors will be given the option to save their information while making a donation. Next, they will receive details to log in to their Donor Portal and repeat the donation just by clicking “QuickDonate”.
