Customizable Giving Forms

Abundant eGiving has been designed specifically for Catholic churches and dioceses. In addition to featuring multiple payment methods, Abundant also has customizable giving forms to engage your parishioners fully. Each form can have a unique look and tailored messaging for your parish’s different activities and appeals. Create looks to match your website, dioceses, or parish activities. You can also embed your parish’s online egiving forms directly on your parish website. 

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 it 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.

Online Giving through the Parish Life Parishioner Portal

PDS is proud to offer Parish Life, a parishioner portal that integrates with Abundant giving your parishioners an additional way to give online. When a parishioner logs into their Parish Life portal, they will see a Give Now button that displays your parish’s Abundant giving form. Parishioners can also view their contribution history through the Parish Life portal, as well as view Mass times and parish activities, view and edit their profile and privacy settings, view their parish directory, and more.

Privacy and Security

Our software keeps donor information secure and private with password-protected online access.

  • Staff members must sign in with a username and password before they can view any giving data.
  • A staff administrator creates the staff member accounts and sets up their passwords. (Staff can then change their own password)
