Introducing the easyTithe Mobile Giving App for iPhone.

As we all know, mobile internet traffic is a large and ever-growing segment of internet traffic, making up roughly 30% of all traffic. But what’s more important (and what you may not know) is that mobile users strongly prefer to use a mobile app as opposed to a mobile web interface. That’s where the easyTithe mobile giving app comes in.

Using the easyTithe mobile giving app, donors can:

  • Give to your organization from their phone in 10 seconds or less
  • Manage their payment profile
  • View all of their giving history

Donors simply download the “easyTithe” app from the Apple App store, find your church, and give! When searching the app store, type in “easytithe” as one word.

This is also referred to as “ACH Debits” (Automated Clearing House Debits)

Credit and Debit Card Giving lets you make one time offerings or automatically on a predetermined schedule using a credit or debit card.

e-Check Giving – the electronic version of your paper check is available for one time giving.

Online Giving lets you to give directly from our website to make one-time
donation or to set up a schedule of automatic donations. By setting up a
