Text Giving

Text giving is another option we’ve made simple for both parishioners and visitors alike to use. Increase engagement by encouraging them to donate via text while the collection plates are passed during Mass. Simply setting up a keyword and sharing with the parish will allow donors to text the keyword to a number and then choose their donation method. They can save the donation method for future giving as well.

Mobile & Online Giving

The mobile app in PDS for eGiving is an easy-to-use platform that makes it convenient for parishioners to give via their phones. Once downloaded, you can use the parish online giving app to set up recurring payments, give and manage gifts, and even view eGiving history. The same features are also available online if a parishioner prefers not to use their mobile device. We developed these options keeping in mind the busy lifestyles of so many churchgoers.
