Tithe.ly vs Donorwerx
Modern methods of church giving have advanced tremendously in the last few years. In an era of digital platforms and online communication, it is easier than ever to grow donors and encourage them to support your work on a regular basis.
In this article, we look at one of the most popular digital giving platforms in use today: Tithe.ly. Here is an overview of this successful app and what you should know before deciding to sign up with them.
What is Tithe.ly?
Tithe.ly is an all-inclusive church-management application. It was designed for all sizes of churches in mind. It is an app that allows cloud-based funds to be collected. Some of the best features for users are:
- iOS + Android mobile giving app
- Online giving & mobile kiosks
- Cash/check gift recording
- Event registration & management
- Recurring giving & Cover the fees
- Debit, Credit, ACH payment types
- Detailed reporting

Mobile Giving Options
With Tithe.ly, users can give from the comfort of their smartphones. No bank account hassles and in-person trips or meetings to collect donations. Their mobile giving options allow credit card and debit card donations, with an automated recurring option for those who want to give on a regular basis.
This is the concept behind tithing, a Biblical term for church or fellowship members who donate a portion of their income to the Lord’s work.
Tithing is based on the concept first published in the book of Malachi:
“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Prove me now herewith, says the Lord, and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.”
When those who wanted to give to the missions set aside a certain portion of their finances, they do so as an investment in the church. Church leaders and managers need to be aware of the great commitment folks are making to support their work. Having an online platform to ensure transparency and proper management of funds is crucial.
Tracking Contributions and Donations with Tithe.ly
With Tithe.ly, even if users do not want to commit to setting up a whole account, they can still donate funds to the church easily through a mobile kiosk. Once they have made a contribution, they are then able to track how, were, and when the money is being allotted for church ministries. This is a key feature in giving donors the security they need when entrusting their tithes to a mission or church.
How does the pricing for Tithe.ly work? Users have the option to sign up for free, then have add-ons that start as low as $5 a month. To access all the features offered, there is an initial $149 setup fee, then a recurring fee of $99 per month.

How Does Donorwerx Compare to Tithe.ly?
On Donorwerx, we aim to give you a well-rounded experience, and all the coaching support you need when growing your donors and church members.
To do this, we provide users with three main things:
1. Online Coaching
3. Digital Software
This means that you have our full support, no matter how small or large your church may be. Whether you have been receiving tithes for years, or are just getting started growing your regular supporters and donors, we will walk you through the process of digital giving, plus teach you essentials such as better online marketing.
One thing that makes DonorWerx different is that we focus on a cyclical process. What does this mean? It is a step-by-step process:
We identify your needs by reviewing seven key metrics related to giving and donor development. This is accomplished through an accountability call. During this call, we talk and discover any hurdles your church may be facing. Next, we assess where you are in the “new era” of giving, and how we can best support you. Finally, you are given a workable step-by-step plan to follow, that ensures you have everything you need setup for online giving and long-term donors.
We hope that through Donorwerx, you find the giving solutions which are best suited to your church. Here are a few Bible verses on giving to encourage you when you feel overwhelmed with the prospect of fundraising.
Lessons from The Word of God
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.
And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
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.
