Receiving a steady income from your donors is easier than ever before. Gone are the days of having to wait for the snail mail check to arrive every month, only after at least one phone call to remind everyone it’s that time of the month to give. Today, recurring donations bring a game-changing mix of old and new advantages for your nonprofit.
- Time saved – When amounts are set and the process is automatic, your precious time and resources are spent on tasks other than contacting every donor every month.
- Bigger donations – Data tells us donors are often willing to give more money when the amount is spread out over the entire year instead of all at once.
- Reliable cash flow – You don’t have to plan your November fundraiser only with the money you received in January. You know what’s coming in every month.
- Flexibility for all – Choose a recurring frequency that fits everyone’s needs. It can be weekly, biweekly, biannually…whatever you want.
We understand how crucial recurring donations can be in maximizing your impact. That’s why we’ve made it a breeze to stay on top of them.
