4 Ways Church Giving Kiosks Boost Donations

Want to boost online donations within your church? Try a giving kiosk. People are already used to kiosks for other financial transactions, and it is likely that they will embrace this alternative way of giving easily.

At the heart of every human being is the desire for a better quality of life. This translates to everything we do, whether relationships, work, financial transactions and even religion. Think of why people come to your church. They want something more spiritual, that will give them greater inner satisfaction. They come to you because you provide them with what other pastors or churches do not.

Take this a step further when planning your fundraising and giving strategies. Decide how you can level up the quality of life for people, in terms of the way they donate, or choose to give.

Here are four great ways that a giving kiosk can boost both a giver’s mood, reason for giving, and amount of donations your church sees flow in.

1. It simplifies the process

If you can do it a simpler way, why not? With a giving kiosk, people aren’t pressured to give financially. They do it on their own time when they feel most comfortable. They can choose when they want to give their donations: before, or after the service. This simplifies the process while saving time. You can still pass the traditional basket but try adding in the option to use the kiosk for gifts and it will take the pressure off many.

2. It promotes digital over paper trails

This is not the time to waste energy and print out lots of documents. The beauty of technology is that you eliminate all those paper trails and provide eco-friendly solutions for all your members to enjoy. Those who are already used to online banking and digital payments will appreciate the efficiency and eco-friendly solutions a kiosk provides.

3. Easier financial management

When gifts are tracked digitally, you streamline the financial process and budgeting. This gives your church budgeting officer or fundraiser the ease of doing his or her job more efficiently. It also frees you to focus on other important tasks, such as creating better content for your church services. Only by ensuring good financial management of funds in the church will donors trust you enough to give.

4. Convenience for both church parishioners and pastors

Make giving a joy, not a chore. Show your congregation how easy it is to go to the kiosk and have their donations go even further in less time. By embracing new technology, you also ensure that your church remains flexible, open to learning new ways of doing things and operating. Everyone gets to grow together.

Helpful Bible Verses on Giving

The next time you are asking or donations for the church, try sharing the following Scriptures to remind people why we encourage giving.

2 Corinthians 9:7

Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

Matthew 6:2

So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.

Luke 6:38

Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

1 Chronicles 29:14

But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand.

Technology as a Force for Good in the Church

As digital tools and tech transform the way people practice religion, learn to embrace the journey. It may take time for everyone in your church to adjust to new methods, but this is the way to move forward.

As the world changes, we need to adapt with it, and teach our congregation to do the same. If you would like to avail of the DonorWerx digital tools for online giving, start by having a look at our resources page.
