Church OrganizationTraditional fundraising tactics from previous generations no longer resonate or inspire the modern donor base. Today’s market has changed drastically with the advent of social media and immediate access to information. Donors are also looking to roll up their sleeves and be involved firsthand.
In 2011, US church membership was down 1.15%. , Across the country, churches have felt a sting of a downward 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 more than $431 million from total giving in 2010. And in 2012, church-giving dropped another $1.2 billion from total giving in 2011.
With this significant dip in traditional giving, the goal for most churches today is to find a way to combine the need for firsthand involvement of donors along with a guaranteed return on fundraising efforts.
94% of all US churches have a weekly attendance of 500 members or less. Of those churches, 59% report a weekly attendance of 100 people or less. With 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? Extra clothes, shoes, and handbags that are no longer being used and simply take up space!
Collection drives for gently worn shoes, clothes, and handbags present a perfect solution for churches to create revenue within a congregation and no overhead cost. Funds2Orgs covers the marketing and shipping costs, and YOUR church members are donating the items that will create revenue.
