Automating Your Pledge Drives

Free Up Valuable Resources by Automating Your Pledge Drives

With the holidays fast approaching, this is where we begin to see a ramp-up in the number of pledge drives created. You are probably thinking of making a pledge drive (or may have made one already!). We all know that manually entering and managing numerous contributions to various pledge drives can take up a lot of time, as well as resources. In today’s world, we are always looking to make things faster and easier. Your church should be no exception.
We wanted to bring to your attention that fact that you can automate your pledge drives in Fellowship One!
This means that you will no longer have to manually enter in contributions. You can now let the software automatically attribute contributions to the right pledge drives.
What does this mean for you?
Well, this will now free up your time, as well as your colleagues’ time to focus on other Church initiatives. You can even decide to devote more time to plan and promote your pledge drive, rather than having to worry about the administration aspect. With more time put towards promotion, there is a chance that your pledge drive will attract more donors in this way. As we mentioned, the holidays are a busy time for your church, so extra resources to focus on other things is a big bonus.
You can read all about your pledge drive automation options in this Help article.
So, we hope that with your newfound free time, you are able to enjoy this period leading up to the holiday season!

More Mass Action for Assignments

One of the great features of Fellowship One is the ability to perform a mass action. This could range from sending a communication to hundreds of your members or updating the records of many with a single click.

By popular request, we have added two additional mass action features to the Assignments list. This is the ability to delete and email members directly from the assignments overview page (Ministry>Assignments>View All). Continue reading «More Mass Action for Assignments»

Don’t Let Velocity Settings Stop December Donors

While it may not feel like Christmas just yet, it’s most definitely time to start thinking about the giving season! Especially as it relates to year end contributors and your payment processing capabilities. That’s why every year around this time, we like to remind our churches to take a look at their velocity settings and make sure they are setup to receive the year-end donations that will undoubtedly be coming your way.

Keep reading to make sure you’re in the clear.

Online Giving without an Account

UPDATED 9/23/14:

Providing the convenience of online giving options and encouraging people to eventually schedule recurring giving is a key part of a successful giving strategy. That’s why we’re so excited about a new feature we’ll be releasing soon.

Starting September 16th, churches can enable “give without account” as part of the InFellowship Features menu for Online Giving! We believe this feature will eliminate one of the primary barriers that stops a donor from giving online. Continue reading «Online Giving without an Account»
