Giving in Faith Report 2022

This report, developed by Givelify in partnership with the Lake Institute on Faith and Giving (part of the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy), explores the state of online and mobile giving in the faith-based community. The results are based on a survey of faith leaders and faith givers in the U.S. conducted in February 2022.

The survey asked faith givers questions about how their giving, attendance, and affiliation with their places of worship were both impacted in 2021 and are expected to change in the future. It also asked faith leaders questions about attendance and membership at their places of worship, how they receive gifts from their congregants, how they delivered services, the community outreach they offer, and their congregations’ finances in 2021.

Among the key themes that emerged were:

  • Faith leaders hold multifaceted roles and are pivotal in driving engagement and community
  • Digital is here to stay, and savvy leaders will cultivate digital communities
  • In challenging times, giving prevailed, and givers want to be even more generous
