Accepting Donations on Facebook and YouTube live streams

Let’s assume that the ultimate goal for your live streaming program is growing your community, accepting new members and spreading the message of God. Accepting contributions online may become a major revenue stream to support the church. Most churches that I have worked with prefer the word “digital contributions” over “digital donations”. The word “contribution” and “contributor” generally hold higher esteem over “donations” and “donor”. There are multiple ways to get started with accepting online contributions and perhaps the easiest way to get started is putting a digital contribution button on your website. Most churches will use a PayPal account to set up a contribution button on their website but I will recommend Pushpay.com as well because services dedicated to worship giving can have a transformational effect on your churches fundraising capabilities. Once your PayPal account is all set up, you can have a simple button put on your website by copy and pasting the custom HTML code into your website editor. This button will allow your contributor's financial contributions directly to your PayPal account.
