Online giving trends

Below you’ll find an infographic breaking down the numbers from July 1, 2018, through September 30, 2018. A few key takeaways include the following:

  • Traffic from mobile devices continues to grow, reaching the 40% milestone this quarter. Make sure to include mobile devices in your donation and fundraising page testing.
  • While online giving spans all generations fairly evenly, Millenials lead the way in online giving with 24% of our traffic. Are your appeals reaching this important demographic?
  • The average transaction size this quarter was $189.48, up for the third consecutive quarter.  We are currently in the fourth quarter of the year when most donations are processed. Make sure you are doing all you can to increase your average donation size.
