Myth 2: Social media doesn’t really affect giving.

Fact: Every year social media is impacting Online Giving in the church even more. When you spread the word through services like Twitter and Facebook, it can result in a higher online giving usage.

Myth 3: Emailing my congregation about Online Giving is a waste of time.

Fact: Studies show that roughly 1 out of 5 donors gave in response to an email. On top of this, nearly half of donors which received physical mail regarding giving gave online rather than through the mail or in person.
