“MyGIVINGSOLUTIONS.com has increased our annual giving by 104% during a time when our congregation only grew 65%” reported Doug Curlee, Executive Pastor for Fellowship of the Parks in Keller, Texas
After participating in a Stewardship Survey, Fellowship of the Parks Church in Keller learned that the best way to increase giving was to increase communication with their church members. By communicating financial goals, reporting current funding to annual goal and sharing the good that is being done in the church and community as a result of tithing, a church can engage and incite their members to give. With this understanding they were met with a challenge that many churches face:
“How do we increase communication without increasing expense?”

The cost for communication to 500 church members quarterly = $374.00 per Quarter with total cost of $1496.00/year
*Non-profit bulk mail rate 3.5 oz or below mailed to 1 zip code. **Based on minimum wage, cost to compile and send packets. Administrative time and cost for received pledges not factored.
While mailed quarterly statements can increase giving, it doesn’t remedy all issues in that:
Fellowship of the Parks sought to increase communication and decrease mailing expense by developing the web-based donor management software, MyGIVINGSOLUTIONS.com. Compare the expense for quarterly communication cost to the ability for constant conversation in a 500 member church:
