Electronic Communications/Online Giving Best Practices
Parish Website Best Practices
As each generation becomes 'more online', increasing numbers of parishioners will seek out your website for information, donating, registering, and volunteering.
Parish Email Best Practices
Using email to communicate with your parishioners will save money, time, and paper. It will also allow you to communicate with them more effectively and immediately. It also benefits parishioners, giving them the ability to communicate more effectively with the parish one-on-one.
Online Giving Best Practices
Online giving is a critical component of parish/diocesan fundraising, now, and in the future. The Archdiocese of Seattle has long encouraged parishes to offer their parishioners the opportunity to give electronically.
