Client Feedback

  • Working with GiveCentral’s electronic fundraising platform was simple and successful! Our first-time, ever, onsite paddle raise was a huge hit. The evening closed with much energy and we surpassed our goal. We are grateful to our partner, GiveCentral for the platform and guidance.

    Judi Golemba

    Associate Vice President, Relationships and Advancement
    University of Saint Mary of the Lake, Mundelein Seminary

  • We signed up with GiveCentral last year and I am very happy we did so. Online donations are so easy and I have mentioned your service on numerous occasions to friends. It definitely is the way to go.


    Our Lady of Lourdes Parish, Chicago, IL

  • With GiveCentral’s help, we increased our electronic giving from 12% to over 35% in 2018! One of the customer service representatives personally helped our School’s Centennial Celebration team set up online registration and corporate sponsorships which raised more than $55,000 in one evening! We look forward to our relationship continuing to grow with the GiveCentral!

    Moira Carey

    St. Nortbert Parish, Chicago, IL

  • Since launching Give Central at our parish, we have seen an increase in the number of online payment transactions and offertory donations. Our parishioners and staff enjoy the convenience and effectiveness of utilizing the Give Central pay portal. The team at Give Central was extremely helpful in the success of our launch and the continued support in our day-to-day operations.

    Rebecca Harper

    St. Francis de Sales Church,Abingdon, MD

  • As the Faith Formation Administrative Assistant, I handle the registrations for Faith Formation, VBC, and some Sacraments. In the past, the payment was handled separately from the registration. Now GiveCentral has connected the registration and payment process, thus reducing my work load as I do not have to follow with an email with a payment link to those who have registered. We are also anticipating an elimination of the number of non-payments since payment is made at the time of registration.
