Recurring and Monthly Giving

Creating a Path for Reliable Gifts

Developing a monthly giving program is a win-win for nonprofits and their contributors. Donors benefit from enrolling in recurring giving because they are able to be part of a cause they hold dear without a substantial one-time donation, making impactful giving financially manageable. In turn, nonprofits see the value of recurring giving when it comes to donor retention, upgrades, and annual planning. Overall, recurring givers have proven more loyal with higher retention rates, and more generous with larger lifetime values than one-time givers.
