Abundant, the new eGiving solution in PDS, offers giving via text, mobile, online, and so much more.

Giving is an important part of the spiritual journey but in a digital age, parishes need to do more than pass the plate. Included in PDS V9, eGiving with Abundant allows your parish to take advantage of the most robust integrated eGiving platform ever offered in PDS. Overcome traditional giving hurdles by allowing your parishioners to give when it’s most convenient for them - via text, mobile, or online. With Abundant in PDS, you can raise money online for specific projects, such as a building fund or mission trip, or encourage your parishioners to donate via text or the mobile app during worship. Abundant has no monthly fees so it’s an affordable option that gives your parish flexibility and allows your parishioners to connect, engage, and continue on their spiritual journey with your parish.

Customizable Giving Forms

Do you wish your parish had a way to customize the look and branding of eGiving to fit the needs of your ministry? Good news - you can do that with Abundant’s customizable giving forms in PDS. Each form can have a unique look, present different activities and tailor the messaging seen by your donors. You can even customize the giving form to match the theme of your parish website and embed the form on your website.

  • Text Giving

    Text giving is one of the most common ways parishes are collecting donations today. eGiving in PDS with Abundant makes text giving a breeze. Your parish will set up a keyword, and donors will simply text the keyword to a number. They will be prompted to enter their payment method that they can choose to save for future donations. It’s that simple.

Mobile & Online Giving

Using the Abundant mobile app in PDS for eGiving is easy and convenient for your parishioners as well as visitors. After downloading the Abundant app, they will be able to give one-time gifts or set up recurring donations, manage their gifts, and even view their eGiving history. For those who prefer not to donate from their mobile device, using online giving allows the same benefits as mobile giving, allowing your parishioners to choose the best option that fits their busy lifestyle.
