That is the reality that you could experience with the GoodtoGive platform.
As opportunities to fundraise and connect face-to-face have temporarily declined, there has been a large and sustained increase in cashless giving and online communities. If your church is not making it easy for your community to engage and give digitally, online and via mobile devices, your organisation will be left behind.
If so, our suite of mobile apps can help.
You can easily set up projects to raise funds for different causes.
The Church Manager App makes it easy to promote these causes and collect donations for them. This feature also helps with accounting processes, you can easily keep control which funds should be allocated to which causes.
Quickly and easily group your members, setup tasks for meetings, regular duties and things like band practice. Assign them to individuals or groups. Tasks can be accepted or rejected by members so it's a convenient way to request help from your volunteers.
Add public ( within the group) or private notes on your tasks while you work so your team know how things are going.
Get notifications on when tasks have been completed.
Manage your team remotely and track progress on your dashboard.
Easily create, share, and fundraise for your projects and events. Notify members and visitors.
Events can be linked to your existing website and forwarded to friends over multiple platforms.
Automatically store events in your members and visitors calendars so they never forget.
Every donation project you create can be shared via social media, but it also creates a donation web page, which you can further use to promote your projects and receive donations.
Whether you are raising funds for a food bank, homeless shelter, building fund or anything else, the GoodtoGive Mobile Apps and Donation page provide a safe and solid platform to promote your project and collect donations seamlessly.
You can add photos, a story and description about the cause you are raising funds for, and share the page across social media (Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp etc.) to gather support. Members, Visitors and Guests can donate online and Members are able to track the progress of the fundraising campaign and their donations in the GoodtoGive Member App.
Behind the initial front page, hides a fun reward for your donors.
The reward can be any image or video which is slowly revealed as the donation amount rises to your target.
The more interesting the hidden image or video the more it encourages donor participation, excitement and just makes donating fun!
Imagine you have a picture of the building you want to buy or plans drawn up by an architect. This would be the ideal way to reveal them to your wider congregation!
You can display real-time donations coming into a project on a large screen in a church or remotely whilst using platforms like Zoom and Facebook Live, motivating people to give and support the cause alongside others.
For faster reveals, you would simply set a smaller target so for example a fun Sunday service picture would be quickly revealed during the short time allocated for collections.
All your donation projects can be displayed easily from any web browser by simply logging into our portal using your admin credentials
If your organisation has multiple branches you can view their performance from the GoodtoGive Management portal. Run reports, track invoices and view Gift Aid claim statuses.
We offer the option to process and manage your Gift Aid automatically as donations come through the app. Reducing administration, ensuring a greater percentage of your donations are eligible for Gift Aid.
Import your history:We can import all your previous donations or declarations even if they are on envelopes. We search all previous years for matching Gift Aid declarations to maximise your Gift Aid income. This is unique to our Gift Aid Management process.
Collect donations from anywhere at any time. Your members can make one-off donations, pay their tithes and set-up recurring payments from their mobile phone.
Donors can also run reports on their donation history and download them in Excel or PDF.
If you visit multiple branches you can easily switch to any branch to make your donations.
Encourage your donors who pay tax at the higher rate to claim it back based on their donations. They can run reports straight from the Member app to use when filling in their tax returns.
Even if your regular members are donating via direct debit, you still need to offer them the additional ability to make quick ad-hoc donations and help them feel connected to your church.
When reaching out through Facebook Live, Zoom or whatever platform you choose, you should always make it easy for members to join your organisation. Our real-time display screen can display a scannable QR code which makes it easy to quickly access our apps on Google Playstore or Apples App Store.
Our team will ensure that getting setup with a merchant account is simple, also registering you for Gift Aid is required.

* Includes merchant fees
* If your church income is above 700,000 per year the fee per donation can be reduced. Contact us for further information.

Our Digital Platform currently comprises of:
1. GoodtoGive Church Manager App – Used by the church/charity Trustees and Leaders
2. GoodtoGive Church Members App – Used by parishioners (members and visitors)
3. A donations webpage which is automatically created by the Church Management app.
4. A donation display page to provide real-time feedback and gamification to encourage donor participation and make donating fun.
1. We provide a website for clients to view all their donations, monitor gift aid claims, view donations across branches and much much more. We also support traditional means of receiving donations in envelopes through another service we provide, where we install a scanner on your site so you don’t have to worry about storing or transcribing envelopes.
The future plan is to integrate other services into our platform.
The App is available for iPhone users on the Apple App Store and for Android users on the Google Play Store.
Where your supporters already make donations direct to the organisations bank account, they can continue to do so. However, the GoodtoGive Church Member app, makes it easier for a supporter/member to make those one-off donations, run their own reports and manage their Gift Aid declarations. Tithes is often paid but direct debit, but during services, making donations from the app is simple and quick, with minimal effort as the payment card is setup from the minute the member registers. Your income will also increase by 25% if the member allows the organisations to claim Gift Aid. The gift aid declaration is also setup up at registration.
The GoodtoGive Mobile Apps provide the most efficient way to receive donations, claim Gift Aid and so much more. As existing clients, we want you to experience all of these benefits.
If you migrate all your members, the apps eliminate the need to buy, scan and process donation envelopes, which means you benefit from cost and time savings which we estimate to be 45p per donation excluding the cost of your time which typically could be one hour per scanning session per week. All this adds up. Think about what you could do with roughly 4 hours a month to devote to other areas of your charity!
All the information we need to process your Gift Aid is transferred directly to us via the app and all donations are transferred to your bank account. We still perform our usual manual checks when our system finds Gift Aid declaration matches against donates for your history with us, helping to maximise your income. An additional time benefit for clients is not having to manage Gift Aid declarations or tithing reports, both of which are handled by the member app.
