Pushpay Launches Donor Development Solution to Help Churches Increase Generosity and Move People Forward on Their Faith Journey

REDMOND, Wash. and AUCKLAND, New Zealand, Nov. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Pushpay Holdings Limited (NZSX:PPH, ASX:PPH, 'Pushpay' or 'the Company'), the leading payments and engagement provider to the US faith sector, today announces its fall product update, which includes donor development tools and insights to help its more than 7,900 customers increase participation and deepen connections within their community.

"At Hosanna, we have a vision to grow with irresistible love, generosity, and unity," said Jennifer Ford, Executive Director of Ministry Services at Hosanna Church. "Having access to data and insights about our congregation enables us to understand where people are on their journey and surfaces opportunities to connect with people in our community who might need it most."

According to recent research, nearly 30 percent of charitable giving occurs in December. Leading into the year-end season, churches now have the tools and resources needed to inspire generosity and share how donations are making an impact within the communities they serve. Pushpay's donor development solution provides metrics, insights, and recommended actions to help church staff identify trends and activity within their congregation like never before. New features include:

    --  Holistic view of giving activity: An all-up view of giving activity
        within a church community, including visibility to new donors, recurring
        donors, top donors, and at risk donors; all in real-time. In addition,
        church finance and administration teams can easily view donors'
        preferred channels for giving, total gifts, giving comparisons within a
        date range, and an overall view of giving trends.
    --  Community member details: A single location to view information about
        individual community members. Access contact information, including
        phone number, email and address, in addition to a history of
        transactions and recurring schedules.
    --  Visibility to donor stages: Based on an individual's transactional
        history, organization administrators can view what stage each person is
        at in their individual giving journey. Stages include: non donor, new
        donor, second time donor, occasional donor, regular donor, recurring
        donor, and lapsed donor. In addition, users can identify donors that are
        at risk.
    --  Recommended actions: Depending on where individuals are on their
        generosity journey, the dashboard displays best practices, next steps,
        and recommends resources to help deepen connections with each community
        member. This enables church leaders an opportunity to nurture and engage
        with their community in a more timely and purposeful way.

"We know that leaders in the church want to help move people forward in their faith journey, but we've been told by customers that they lack the data and technology needed to understand where people currently are," said Bruce Gordon, CEO of Pushpay. "Our new donor development solutions are simply the first step to enable churches to take a more holistic approach to nurture people and increase participation within their community."

In addition to new donor development solutions, Pushpay also announces new app enhancements. Features include deep links, which allow users to access linked content from push notifications more seamlessly. In addition, a new bookmark solution will enable app users to save relevant content within their profile, allowing individuals to save or view content at a later time.

Today's announcement comes on the heels of the Company's recent interim results announcement, which showed strong company growth and highlights how churches are using Pushpay to fund ministry efforts that are making a positive impact in the communities they serve.
