Digital Giving for churches: an opportunity for growth

December 21, 2021

In 2021, our Donation Station was chosen, along with other devices to help pilot a study into contactless and digital giving at the Church of England.

Six of Cumbria's iconic highly-visited churches now have an immersive digital donation device functioning year-round, and the results are beginning to show.

£30,000 given = 30% above target

It's even had a mention in UK parliament:

The Second Church Estates Commissioner, Andrew Selous said in October:

"Since June this year £30,000 has been given through these units. Which is 30% more than we were budgeting for and we know that the average contactless donation is almost three times higher then the average cash donation and the average online donation is ten times higher. So where Cumbria leads, the Church of England should follow!”

Enhance your fundraising through digital integration

Without taking the place of cash donations or a giving plate,
The Church of England can see that adding digital giving methods into its communities is beneficial to fundraising campaigns, and an opportunity for all.
