Online Giving Webinar – Vanco

January 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This year has shown us, in new ways, the benefits of paperless, automatic, or digital giving. Whether your congregation is small or large, whether your participants are in town or out in the country or online, automatic/digital giving can help your participants become committed givers. 

But is paperless giving safe and secure? How can we set this up? How much does it cost? How can I get answers to my questions? And what company would we choose? The ELCA has done the work for us by identifying two organizations as “ELCA Preferred  Vendors” – Vanco and Tithe.ly.

You can learn more about what each of these groups has to offer in separate Zoom Webinars:

Vanco – Thursday, January 7 – 7:00 pm
Tithe.ly – Tuesday, January 12 – 6:00 pm

Who is this for? Anyone! But especially: Presidents, Treasurers, Stewardship Committees, Finance Committees, and Pastors. There is no limit to registration numbers, so the more the merrier.

Register for one or both webinars! Both Zoom webinars will be exclusively planned for SW MN Synod congregations.

Here are short descriptions from our webinar teachers:

Vanco Webinar with Jenny Lutter
Since 2017, egiving through Vanco in Southwestern Minnesota has increased by 27%. With 42% of Southwestern Minnesota congregations using Vanco for egiving, Vanco has insight on the power of egiving in your synod and congregations. How much higher might your church’s egiving be if you made merchant services (debit and/or credit cards) a part of your egiving options? For those who are longstanding Vanco clients, have you updated to our Vanco Online web pages, events, mobile app, kiosk, text-to-give, and more? After walking you through our data, we’ll give you a quick tour of the latest from Vanco so that your giving page and website can look like this: https://www.vancovalleychurch.com/. Whether you currently have eGiving through Vanco or not, we will have important data to share with you to support your congregation’s mission.
