The traditional 4th of July celebration began in 1775, when the United States first became an independent nation. Today, the holiday comes complete with a day off of work, cookouts, and fun with family and friends. Now, thanks to mobile giving, you can experience the joy of Independence Day all year long.
Mobile Giving Brings Independence
In the United States, celebrating the 4th of July is greatly about appreciating our independence. But when it comes to making donations, your supporters often don’t have very much freedom afforded to them. They usually have to be physically present in your place of worship or at a nonprofit fundraising event in order to give.
Thankfully, mobile giving has stepped in to give your supporters a new level of independence that they haven’t known before. Using their smartphones, they can give from anywhere, in any amount, at any time. Members no longer have to be in church to show their support. In fact, they don’t even have to leave home.
Freedom from ATMs and Checkbooks
With mobile giving, your supporters will not only have more freedom in the times and locations they can give, but they also have more independence leading up to their offering.
They no longer have to carry cash in their wallets, which means no more last minute trips to the ATM. They don’t need to bring a checkbook. All they need is their smartphone — which they already take everywhere they go anyway.
This freedom in giving encourages more giving, which builds up funds for your place of worship to do more and more good in and around your community.
As Exciting As Watching Fireworks
The first official fireworks display associated with Independence Day took place on July 4, 1777. But no matter how much time goes by and how many displays we watch, fireworks still cause us all to “ooh” and “ahh” as we watch the colors light up the summer night’s sky.
Mobile giving has a similar effect. When your supporters give with a well-designed, user-friendly app like Givelify, you will hear them oohing and aahing — and likely telling their friends about it. This is especially true when you use a Givelithon to show incoming donations.
As they watch their gifts make a direct impact on your fundraising goal, they will view your projector screen the same way they look at fireworks: with excitement.
