GLIDE attracts thousands of congregants, volunteers and community members every week and currently has a limited capacity to easily accept credit card donations using mobile technology. The impact that this mobile giving page will have is significant. We will be able to encourage congregants to give larger gifts during Sunday Celebrations than they would otherwise give using cash, and allow them to do so instantly, rather than at home on a computer. Additionally, we can offer live fundraising, capturing giving progress at events in real time to share with participants. The solution is a mobile page hosted at glide.org that offers a variety of payment options, leveraging existing accounts linked to credit cards to free the donor from having to type in their credit card information. The proposed processors are PayPal, Amazon, Google and Stripe (a simple interface option for donors who either do not have or choose not to use the other three). The project is mostly completed, with Paypal fully functional at this time. The other three accounts, Amazon, Google and Stripe, will require account creation at the official level at GLIDE.
