Details about Online Giving
Faith Teams offers a full suite of features for Online / Digital Giving.
Everything you Need in One System (This is BIG)
Faith Teams is a all-in-one church management solution, and that includes all the Giving tools. Yes, Faith Teams is a complete digital giving platform, but more than that… it’s connected directly to your church database. This is HUGE. With most church management software, you have to add additional services, and keep the data synced together. But with Faith Teams, it’s all in one system. This saves you so much time and headache trying to keep your data together. When somebody gives (whether by text, online form, etc.) it’s automatically recorded in their profile.
There are FIVE Ways people can Give to your Church:
- Our Free Mobile App – People can download the free Faith Teams app, create an account and give directly from the app.
- Text-to-Give – You get a dedicated SMS number at no additional cost where people can donate quickly via text message.
- Your Church Website – You can easily add a custom form to your website, branded with your church logo, where people can give straight from your site.
- Kiosk – You can place a kiosk/tablet in a public area and people can donate without creating an account. (Yep, without creating an account – How easy is that?)
- Forms – You can create custom forms and add payment options to the form. This can be for events, etc. These forms can be emailed, shared on social media or placed on your website.
Our Free Mobile App
Our Free Mobile App is available to your entire congregation. (Get it Free Here)
Once they download the app, they can create a free account by clicking “I Need an Account”. Once they create and activate the account, they’ll be able to add their preferred credit or debit card, or link their bank account if they wish. There are only a few steps to getting setup.
Once they’re setup, they can give by simply opening the app and clicking GIVE, and inputting their 4-digit code. They even have the option to “Cover the Fees” if they wish. It’s really simple to setup and use.
One of the most popular features in today’s church is Text-to-Give.
When you signup for Faith Teams, you can get your own unique LOCAL phone number dedicated to your church. Next, you can select the Keyword you want people to use for giving via text. For example: “Give”, “Gift”, “Ofrenda”
After setting up your account, people can donate in 2 easy steps:
- STEP 1: Send a text to your churches dedicated number. (For example: Text “Give $100”)
- STEP 2: Send a response to confirm which fund or offering you are giving to. (For example: Text “Give $100”)
It’s that Easy! Our team is happy to help you get this setup, so don’t worry. : )
Your Church Website
You can create a form to embed directly on your website. Our form builder allows you to match the colors, and build a form that matches your website theme.
Simply embed the code into your website, and people will be able to click a button and give to your church.
This feature is becoming more and more popular. Place a Tablet/iPad on a stand in your lobby where people can donate one-time gifts without creating an account.
It’s an opportunity for people who may not have cash or check, but love the support their church. The Kiosk setup is easy and a convenience that many people will take advantage of.
You can create a customized signup form for an event, conference or retreat and accept a payment directly through the form. You can brand these with your logo or a banner, and manage all the payment and signup activities, including a clean registration list for events.
You can post this form on your website, send it through text or email, or post it to your churches social media channels. (Find out more about Customer Forms HERE)
