Make It Public
Get the Word Out!
- Social Media - Share your link to all of your social media pages by adding your unique url in a message, post, or tweet. This is a great way to not only get your church involved but also extend an invitation to your community and friends (and your friends' friends..etc.) to participate.
- Text Message - Texts have about a 99% open rate and one of the most effective ways to get the word out about a Need. Use a Twext in a group or send a group text in your Lead App to alert your group members.
- Email/Mail Merge - Add a hyperlink to your Public Needs page directly to your email or Mail Merge. This is a great way to create awareness of your Need with your congregation and allow them the opportunity to respond immediately.
- Website - Your website typically is one of the first places people go to to learn more about your church and stay up to date with what you are doing right now. Add your Public Needs page on your website to direct people to jump in and help where they can.
Payment Type Search
Find Your Donors
Any profile with Full Financial Admin Privileges will be able to run this People Search. First, make sure you are on the Classic Search Page and head to the magnify glass. Once there, click the tab and scroll to "Transaction Amount to COA in Date Range*." Next, start to set up the criteria for the specific people you are looking for. As you set the criteria you will happen across our new payment "Type" selection! Choose from "Cash", "Check", "Online", and "Other" to look for those who have given through a specific type of giving. Once your criteria is set, hit "Search Now" and you will now have a list of donors based on their Payment Type!
Now that you have your list you can now add your donors to a Process Queue for follow up, send a Mail Merge, print mailing labels, or save the Search so you can easily get back to your list later.
We hope these features serve you and your teams well and see new ways to reach out to your communities, as you are a conquering this season!
