Our mission is to make the Givelify mobile giving app the easiest, most beautiful way for your members to donate to your church. But we didn’t forget about church leaders and staff. We designed the Givelify Dashboard to make managing your church giving simple as well.
Here are five reasons your church’s financial admin (or team) will love Givelify just as much as your members do.
No more adding up checks and counting cash
How much time do you spend tallying up checks and counting bills and coins after services? Depending on the size of your church, it might take hours–time you could be spending with family or doing other vital work. Givelify does the counting for you, freeing you up to go on with your day. (And you won’t miss all the papercuts.)
Helps eliminate clerical and accounting errors
Speaking of manually adding up checks and cash, have you ever made a mistake in your calculations? Did you discover it before you made your deposit, or did you have to go back over weeks of church giving transactions to find it? Since donations made through Givelify are automatically recorded in your dashboard, you’ll always know exactly how much money will be in your bank account.
Safer and more secure than taking cash to the bank
It’s always a bit scary walking around with large sums of cash. Even if you use locked night deposit bags from your bank, you still feel vulnerable. But often church admins just put the money in an envelope and take it to the bank in their purse or satchel, leaving it prone to theft. With Givelify, electronic donations are disbursed directly into your bank account the next business day, minimizing the risk to not just your donations but your personal safety.
Custom church giving envelopes for easy fund allocation
Your members give to the general offering, building fund, and all the other capital campaigns you might have. But how do you know which church giving fund should receive how much? If they don’t write down the amounts on an envelope–or if you don’t use envelopes at all–their gifts may not go where they intended. When you create custom giving envelopes, Givelify’s reports show you exactly how your members intended to give and where you should allocate funds.
Integrate with your financial or church management software
Whether your church uses Quickbooks or church-specific financial or church management software, reporting can still be a chore. Because you can easily pull donation and donor reports from the Givelify dashboard into your management software, reporting is more efficient and error-free. And we’re working hard on making reporting even better, so stay tuned.
