While building a supportive community of congregants, the Oro Valley Church of the Nazarene (OVCN) in Arizona has also become an effective fundraiser. Worship Pastor Larry Vinyard says that DonateNow makes tithing more convenient for parishioners compared to writing checks. “It’s all about giving folks an additional giving option,” he says.
You might not think of a church as a tech-savvy organization, but OVCN has a growing membership that prefers to make donations online. DonateNow was an obvious solution—and not only for congregants who visit the physical building. The church also streams services live online, and viewers can make a donation directly on the website.
Vinyard says the church signed up for DonateNow when they recognized a need for online fundraising tool and heard good things about NFG from another organization. He enjoys the ease of logging in and generating reports, and he appreciates that the interface is user-friendly and flexible. Beyond DonateNow’s administrative ease, OVCN’s members like how it makes giving simple and quick.
