Participation in specialized activities deepens the church experience and teaches skills that can’t always be picked up in the church. If a child wants to sing in the church choir, or be a vital part of the community, that should be within their reach. Unfortunately, there’s a rapidly growing barrier: The steady uptick of community members are asked to contribute out of pocket.
Continuing to ask families for more funds isn’t a great answer.
It’s not sustainable. And pastors shouldn’t have to dip into their wallets to equip their chapels, ministries, and sanctuaries.
This is where the fundraiser comes in. Fundraisers have always been an enormous service to communities and organizations. Over time, they’ve become a vital source of financial support for church and community groups. Fundraising is a strong solution for lean budgets. Not only does it keep clubs and programs going, it boosts childrens engagements in and enthusiasm for church overall.
Help Your Church: a far better way to fundraise
Most fundraising programs prey on the goodwill of those wanting to help. Supporters feel compelled to buy products and services they don’t even need or use, often at super-inflated pricing.
After noticing this we thought, “This model is flawed. It needs to change.” So we set out to do just that.
Our team believes a fundraiser is only effective if it meets three specific goals:
Show a financial return to the fundraising group
Offer value to supporters who buy the product or service offered
Provide noticeable/measurable benefit to the community
We call that a Win-Win-Win program, and we built it.
As far as we can tell, Help Your Church is the only fundraising platform that’s created this kind of triple benefit. Not only that, we’ve made recurring fundraising easier and faster than ever before.
With Help Your Church, supporters save money and time while helping their church community.
