The 2020 novel coronavirus has brought unimagined results, many of which we still haven’t seen. The pandemic is forcing places of worship to fight for financial survival and rethink how they can continue to connect and serve their communities.
Givelify launched a nationwide study to better understand how giving is changing during the pandemic. The findings will be revealed in the Giving in Faith: How Coronavirus Virus Widened The Digital Divide report out next week.
Join us for the launch of the report, where we’ll provide an overview of the findings and discuss insights for how you can engage your community digitally during the pandemic and beyond.
During the launch event, you’ll learn:
How has giving changed during the pandemic?
Why have some churches seen an uptick in donations while others are struggling to survive?
How can you better engage with your giving community digitally?
