Church OrganizationTraditional fundraising tactics from previous generations no longer resonate and inspire the modern donor base. Today’s market has changed drastically with the advent of Social Media and immediate access to information, coupled with desire by donors to roll up their sleeves and be involved firsthand.
In addition to total US church membership down 1.15% in 2011, Churches have felt a sting within recent years as a result of this overall shift in charitable giving. According to the National Council of Churches, the last 2 years have been especially harsh:
- In 2011, church giving declined by 431 million from total giving in 2010.
- And in 2012, church-giving dropped 1.2 billion from total giving in 2011.
A quick calculation shows that the 2012 decline is nearly triple that from 2011. The goal for churches today is to find a way to combine the need for firsthand involvement of donors along with a guaranteed return on fundraising efforts: Enter Funds2Orgs.
94% of all US Churches have a weekly attendance of 500 or less, of which 59% of all US churches has a weekly attendance of 100 or less. With these smaller numbers of attendees, churches need a way to get every congregation member involved. What does nearly every person in the US have in their home? Clothes, shoes, and handbags that are no longer being used and simply taking up space!
