It's simple for those who want to give.

Giving is really easy and can even be done without registering. But if they do register, they can do extra things like schedule recurring donations, set up commitment level pledges, and manage giving schedules without getting your staff involved. Donors can see their prior giving history and download up-to-date donor statements. Everything's in one place and super convenient.

It does a lot more than process transactions for your staff.

The City's Giving Module supports the full donation cycle: electronic payment processing, pledges, donor management, fund management, batch entry, and reporting. Not only is it a convenient way to give for people in your church, it is a powerful tool for your staff. Any staff person with the appropriate permissions, can use the giving module to input, update, and track pledges and donations.

Quick Importing

The City’s bulk import tools make it easy to import your church’s full giving history (i.e. donor profiles, funds, donations), enabling your church to transition quickly to The City from legacy systems, without missing a beat.

Batch Entry of Checks

The City saves your financial staff or volunteers precious time by streamlining donor lookup by scanning each check's MICR code, then automatically matching the check to the correct donor. Create and manage funds and batches. Build a reliable donor database. Import and export data to maintain complete and accurate historical giving records.

Built-In Reporting

The City’s built-in financial reports give you all the basics for keeping track of donations, funds, batches, and donors. You can use any of the popular pre-made queries and reports or custom-create the exact report you need. For example, pre-built reports include information on Lapsed Donors, Top Donors, Donations by Funds, and First-time Donors. For more complex reporting needs, you can export your data to MS Access and slice and dice it however you want.
