In August 2015 we founded Newfire Giving in order to meet the needs of Churches and non-profit organizations who were looking to save money on their giving digital software and credit card rates. Our goal hasn’t changed.

Stu Baker

Stu has been around the church his entire life, and knew that after receiving a double major in Marketing and Entrepreneurship from the University of South Carolina that he would use these degrees to help the church. From 2008 - 2015, Stu partnered with over 2,300 churches worldwide. His mission was to shift their giving strategy away from just “passing the plate” and in doing so open up more opportunities for those who wanted to give back in other ways. Stu was crucial in helping these churches adapt to the new giving economy and through this discovered that the number one divisor between healthy and struggling churches is the donor’s experience. When your donors are passionate about the experience you can do more good. Better.
