I want to share a few updates from MortarStone – one of my most invaluable tools as an Executive Pastor. I’ve written on the topic of Donor Development before, so it comes as no surprise that I get excited when I see new software updates from MortarStone. We’ve been using their Donor Analytic application for several years now, and the dashboard feature is one I use regularly to review giving trends and real-time information.
New Dashboard Views
The new dashboard features easier to read Overall Giving and Acquired Givers graphs. A snapshot of this sample dashboard shows giving is up 13% in 2016 versus 2017 while giving from those who gave for the first time is down 13%. These new views provide a quick analysis of giving, as well as help uncover any noticeable trends.
In addition to Overall Giving and Acquired Givers, the dashboard views show campaign giving and advanced pledge analysis as seen in the sample below. Gone are the days of crunching numbers in long and complicated spreadsheets – all of your campaign giving can be found in one quick and easy to read place!
Do More With Your Data
If you like the idea of having all of your giving data at your fingertips, but you’re just not sure what to do with it, MortarStone can help you put your data to work by creating actionable stewardship plans. Through their coaching program, MortarStone can help your church develop a 12-month Annual Giving Program that can take your giving to the next level.
