Local church CTG uses for weekly/monthly giving

Comments: Overall, I have been happy with our CTG experience. The program is easy to use and is priced well. I have had good customer service when I have called the nice people in Wisconsin. I didn't rate 5 of 5 for quality or features/functionality for the following reasons:
- We use this service for our regular giving. I don't like that other people can see the amounts of gifts people give to our church, and sometimes can even see who gave. I believe this feature would useful when raising funds for a specific purpose, but it is annoying for regular tithes and offerings. We have asked for this feature to be removed from our profile and have not been able to have it removed.
- From a quality standpoint, I wonder about the security of the platform. If major retailers, banks, the government, and even Yahoo can be hacked, how is CTG handling security threats and protecting the sensitive information of our donors? I have not heard any issues yet from our congregation, but also do not know what has been done on the side of CTG. It would be good if the efforts of CTG were shared with users of the site - maybe a short blurb that has a link like: "click here for more information about how we keep your information secure."

Pros: Value for what we receive. At the time we shopped it, CTG was the most competitive. We have since found that PayPal offers discounted pricing to non-profit organizations, and if as our giving increases, that may become a more affordable option.

Cons: There is a record of how much was given and on what day posted on the website. Sometimes, the name of the donor is also listed with the amount given. I want this information to remain confidential, and would like the option to have this feature disabled for our account.

Continue to Give. A good value for the money, but confusing to use.

Comments: While I like some features of Continue to Give, some areas will give users (both donors and donees) a pause. From a donor point of view, giving to a missionary or church that has a link to a donor page is a breeze. A form pops up and the donor can give online. The service sends an email documenting your giving and the site has a report that will show you your giving history. However, if a donor goes directly to the Continue to Give site, they will be very confused and lost. Maybe the donor shouldn't be going to the site directly, but the option exists to create an account as a giver. Once the account is set up, there is no direction as to what to do next. From a donee point of view, the service has some nice features. I manage a missionary organization, and the ability for donors to give to support a particular missionary is a benefit. Again, the reports for donations are very helpful but sometimes inaccurate. My biggest problem is when the report says an ACH donation has failed when it has in fact gone through. My other peeve is in trying to match individual donations to the batches that are posted to our bank. I export the giving transactions and mark the individual giving to match what came into the bank account. Between having to look up ACH vs CC batches and multiple batches in one day, it can be quite a chore. The recently added batch reporting helps, but that report can't be exported and only shows one day at a time. I will say that the support team for Continue to Give is very helpful and responsive. They have assisted me with any issues I have had in short order. Overall, I have to say I am pleased with Continue to Give, even with its shortcomings. There is no donation service quite like it, especially for missionary organizations. Reporting is good and the integration with a church/missionary website is excellent. I've not used some of the features that are available for churches (like the kiosk and mobile apps) but they look very well thought out. And the pricing compares favorably to other methods I have looked at. I would recommend it.

Pros: Reporting.
Integration with organization website.
Communication to donors.

Cons: Confusing set up for organizations and missionaries.
Reconciling donations to batch bank deposits.
