Crowdfunding for Churches
Churches in our country bring families together on Sunday mornings, minister to the underserved through food pantries on Tuesday afternoons, teach little children about Jesus, while providing a sanctuary for older brothers and sisters to explore their growing faith. Churches have always been the backbone of traditional values in our country. Yet churches, like so many traditional institutions, often struggle to find the resources needed to fund the good works they do. The reasons are many; the economy continues to be sluggish, family budgets are strained. Financial priorities must be assessed, scrutinized, and squeezed — then reassessed once again, including financial support to the church.
WonderWe recognizes these hardships and stands ready to help. As a faith-based community crowdfunding platform, WonderWe provides the gateway to enable the power of small donations to accomplish the greater goal. By initiating a campaign on WonderWe, you can share a specific need to those within your congregation, and—through the power and will of WonderWe—far beyond your sanctuary walls. WonderWe, by spreading your message within the platform, will further encourage an extended community of like-minded, faith-focused individuals to share within their own network. This is the power of crowdfunding, building excitement and enthusiasm beyond your immediate reach, extending your network and the network of others to gather the necessary funds to meet the community’s goal.
WonderWe is a state-of-the-art crowdfunding technology with world-class design and fresh, patent-pending features. This free platform helps make serving others easy, engaging, and enjoyable. Capable of supporting multiple campaigns on native and mobile apps, WonderWe features include peer-to-peer fundraising, built-in social networking, a We#Code for sharing and promoting ideas, and a “video-ask” viral feature for personal fundraising requests. No other crowdfunding platform offers so much with no fees attached. In fact, since WonderWe is free, the only investment you need to make is a few minutes of your time. However, we frequently hear from visitors that the site is so interactive, packed with compelling stories, and so easy to navigate, that you may find yourself settling in for a longer visit than you expected.
Most likely you’re teeming with ideas for how you can serve your church through a WonderWe campaign. Ideas other churches have explored include introducing a campaign for a retreat—for a bible study group, your church leadership, perhaps the parents of young children who need time to focus on how best to nurture their youngsters in today’s world of conflicting values.
Independent groups such as the Boy Scouts often meet in churches, and similar to church budgets, theirs are often stretched. A campaign could ignite interest in a group of scouts heading to a summer camp in the Rockies. Or perhaps the Knights of Columbus, Mom’s groups, your church’s Stephen’s Ministry or a confirmation class could use the exposure of a WonderWe crowdfunding campaign to jumpstart a charity that is close to their hearts.
Emergency repairs, capital campaigns, new bibles and hymnals—there is no lack of need. Visit WonderWe today, start a campaign, start a dialog, believe that faith will guide you, and your church, to all the goodness it deserves.
