One of the most common obstacles between churches and using Planning Center Giving is a contract with another company—covering two payments is too much of a financial commitment.
We genuinely want your church to use tools that work for you and your congregation, and we want to remove any potential obstacles between you and the software you want to use.
So if your church is under contract with another donation management company, we will waive your subscription fee to Planning Center Giving for the duration of your current contract, for up to 12 months.
If you are happy with what your church is using for donation management, stay! But if you want to manage donation data in the same software you use for everything else, this might be the perfect time.
This offer is open through January 31, 2021, so learn more about whether your church qualifies and how to apply! 👇
Anyone Under Contract Can Apply
Any church currently under contract with another donation management system can apply.
This includes brand new Planning Center customers, current customers without a Giving subscription, and customers with active Giving subscriptions who are still under a contract with another organization!
All we need is a copy of your current contract to get started.
How to Apply
You can submit your contract from the form on this page. Once we verify the end of your contract, our support team will email you with some steps on what to do next.
Your organization will receive credit to your account for a 30-day free trial plus a credit for each month left on your contract up to 12 months (including your one month trial).
And since Planning Center offers the lowest available processing fees for online donations through Stripe, your church could potentially be processing donations without any additional out-of-pocket costs for a total of a full year.
Why Transition in January
Moving software systems is a daunting task. But the sooner you tackle the transition and process most of your donations through Planning Center Giving, the easier issuing 2021 statements will be for your bookkeeper.
There will always be a few stragglers from your old system, but making the big push in January is your best chance to get off to a strong start with Giving.
The good news is you don’t have to figure out any of this alone. We are committed to making this transition as simple and pain-free as possible for your church.
After you submit your contract, we will email you with next steps, including instructions on how to transition from another system, articles on getting started with Giving, and an overview video. We also have a little guide on how to make online giving approachable to your congregants.
You can apply for this offer on our website, and then we can get started!
