We are excited to help you ignite generosity at your church with ParishSOFT Giving. Get started now with the Giving Guarantee and watch your donations support grow. Below we outline how the program works and what you need to do to get started.
Once you are enrolled, if your church does not see a 5% increase in giving within 12 months, we will refund your monthly software fees.*
ParishSOFT guarantees your church that you will see (at minimum) a 5% increase in annual giving within their first 12 months of using our giving system. Once you become a ParishSOFT Giving customer and are ready to receive online donations, you are not automatically enrolled in this program, but signing up is easy.
How to Opt In
Once your church has provided all the necessary paperwork and has your giving web page set-up, you can opt-in to the giving guarantee when you first log into ParishSOFT Giving.
To enroll in the Giving Guarantee program, click the Opt In Now button and you will be prompted to fill out information to be enrolled in the program. Once the form is submitted, our Giving Success coaches will be informed and who will work with your church to ensure that you are aware of the requirements and are meeting all the necessary requirements to be eligible for the Giving Guarantee.
Not Ready to Opt In Now? No Problem!
There will be an “X” in the upper right-hand corner it will opt them out of the program. They can click away from the message if your church is not yet ready to opt-in. You can always opt-in later if you prefer.
