Three Ways Recurring Donations can Amplify Your Giving

Like exercise, drinking water, or eating more vegetables, setting a recurring donation is a practice that’s good for you and has the added benefit of helping others. As a “Giving as a Service” TM platform, Philanthropi makes it easy for new givers and those who have dedicated charities they support to give with our recurring donations platform.

If you’re ready to amplify your giving, making a recurring donation to your favorite charity is one of the best ways.


Below we list three significant benefits of making your automatic charity donations part of your weekly or monthly routine:

  1. Convenience

    Giving every month is a great way to incorporate charitable donations into your budget. Small amounts of $25 or less each month, also known as micro-philanthropy, are easier to maintain than trying to provide a significant donation on Giving Tuesday. Setting up an automatic recurring donation also removes the pressure of remembering to give to your favorite charity. You just set up your recurring donation and let the automated service do the rest.

  2. You Get to View the Impact of Your Giving

    Monthly recurring gifts enable you to see the impact of your donation. Recurring donations amplify your giving by establishing an ongoing connection with the charity.  The organization also knows that you’re a dedicated donor, and they’ll keep you up to date on innovations and programs, which enables you to see where your money is going.  Your giving may also be amplified by the opportunity to have your voice heard within the charity as they may seek your opinion or provide access to become more involved with their organization.

  3. Recurring Donations Help your Organization’s Budget

    Recurring donations from individuals help charities to maintain consistency. Frequent donors assist their favorite charities in saving time and money. Charities can also spend more time prospecting new donors. Instead spending their budget reaching out to existing donors who give infrequently.

With Philanthropi, recurring donations create a community and build a legacy.
