Our Lady of Refuge

Our Lady of Refuge Parish is a flourishing Catholic community nestled in Long Beach, California. As new giving technologies developed, the parish began to look for innovative ways to provide a steady source of income to fund their ministries.

Initially Our Lady of Refuge selected Vanco for online giving but experienced limited results and felt a need for greater administrative support and marketing assistance to ensure success. It became clear to parish staff that a complete online giving solution would be required to grow their eGiving program and sustain the ministries that do so much to help the community.

St. Vincent de Paul in Wildwood, Florida is a welcoming Catholic community an hour northwest of Orlando. Over the years, the parish grew both their church building and membership increased.

With that growth, the church realized the need to find a more complete eGiving provider. St. Vincent needed help with a communication strategy that would encourage a greater level of participation among their parishioners and thereby provide a more reliable source of offertory income online.

Formed in 1856, St. Barnabas began as a modest gathering of 70 families who gathered to build a parish community. Today, they are a stalwart presence in their Northfield, Ohio community and devoted home to 3,000 parishioners.

In 2016, as the parish adapted to changing technology, they introduced an online giving option for their donors. As the parish and the program grew, it become apparent that the parish staff needed assistance with administration, communication, and parishioner support.

St. Thomas

The Church teaches us that for adults who are able, offering some form of financial support to your home church is an obligation. St. Thomas Aquinas in Avondale, Arizona needed reliable and active monetary giving to facilitate this mission.

For much of the decade that St. Thomas Aquinas used Our Sunday Visitor for online giving, the parish staff was overwhelmed by the amount of effort required to keep the program up and running. While St. Thomas Aquinas was able to sign up 376 online givers by the summer of 2018, there was clearly room for improvement.

Church of the Resurrection

Church of the Resurrection is a large, thriving Catholic community in Ellicott City, Maryland – a town rich in history that is part of Baltimore’s bustling suburbs.

Three years ago, all Religious Education registrations were handled using paper forms and cash or check payments – a process that took a great deal of time and could result in mistakes and misunderstandings. Their families are both busy and digitally savvy, so the parish knew that simplifying the registration process for Religious Education had the potential to make life easier for parishioners.
