Electronic giving is here to stay, and SecureGive is on the front lines in making that happen for churches
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 19, 2013
SecureGive provides a new way to collect donations during tough economic times; in addition to the traditional passing-of-the-plate, this stewardship company created an iPad® giving kiosk so that parishioners can donate to their churches and synagogues using their bank cards. In today's economy fewer people, particularly the younger generations, are carrying cash or checkbooks. Today, churches and non-profits are forced to consider alternative ways of collecting money. SecureGive has placed giving kiosks in nearly one thousand organizations in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.
The giving kiosk provides a quick and easy way for church goers to donate using an iPad and swiping a bank card. Giving at Stevens Creek Church in Augusta, GA, increased by double digits since the giving kiosks were installed at this evangelical church. Last year the church collected over a million dollars electronically. "People use their debit card for gas, groceries, why not something they truly believe in -- the local church," Stevens Creek Pastor/SecureGive founder Marty Baker said.
The iPad’s long battery life and ability to work over cellular networks means churches can have a portable giving kiosk nearly anywhere. “The Lilitab iPad kiosk is a really well thought out product with easy assembly and tear down,” Michael Haywood, Dir. of Marketing and Business Solutions, SecureGive. “The banner and backdrop graphics provide outstanding marketability, taking a small iPad and letting it have a big impact,” adds Haywood.
“SecureGive’s easy to use Lilitab iPad kiosk allows donors to quickly use their credit or debit card to make their offering. Donors are able to give on a more consistent basis, therefore improving the spiritual discipline of giving and generosity. Electronic giving is here to stay, and SecureGive is on the front lines in making that happen for churches,” states Marlan Crawford, Accounting Manager of Impact Church in Atlanta, GA.
Lilitab iPad kiosks are versatile, modular, and easy to customize. The Lilitab Tabletop turns any desk or table into a self-service station with quick installation; the Lilitab Surface is for a more permanent solution for a wall or counter. Lilitab offers custom branding, banner mounts and eye-catching backdrops to promote special events or seasonal activities.
Full ADA compliance assures the Lilitab iPad kiosk provides easy iPad interactions for wheelchair donors.
