1 Is Smart Giving only for churches?

No! We’re honored to work with all nonprofits. We offer our plans on a month-to-month basis—with no contracts or cancellation fees— and many nonprofits use Smart Giving for one time events or for on-going giving.

2 Is Kindrid secure?

All financial information is encrypted and stored by our banking partner to Level 1 PCI compliant standards. Level 1 PCI compliance is a set of rules stated by credit card companies and audited by an independent third party. Level 1 PCI is the highest possible rating. Additionally, all transmission to our banking partner and on our site is via an encrypted HTTPS connection.

3 How do I make a gift through Smart Giving?

You can see how Smart Giving works in this video.

4 Do I need to open up a new merchant account?

No! You do not need to set up a separate merchant account and there are never any other hidden charges. Kindrid provides an end-to-end solution. All gifts are tracked through your Kindrid dashboard. This saves money and increases simplicity.

5 How long does it take to get up and running?

Only 5-10 minutes! It's a very simple process to set up your account and begin receiving your first gifts! We don’t think unleashing generosity should be hard, so we made Smart Giving simple to set up and simple to use.

6 Can I try Smart Giving first?

Yes! Text "demo" to 616-328-6953 to try out Smart Giving—you’ll receive a sample message back. Or click here to try out the Smart Giving Button.

7 Do you offer short code giving?

Yes! The short code option can be used on either plan for an additional $100 monthly.

8 Will Kindrid integrate with my church management software?

Kindrid integrates directly into Church Community Builder, Fellowship One, Shelby, Arena, Ministry Platform, Breeze, and ACS. We also work with churches using a variety of other management software. Even without a direct integration, we offer a variety of tools to make importing your data simple.

9 Are there examples showing the impact of churches using Smart Giving?

Yes! You can view our case study online here.

10 Do you have information I can share with my church?

Yes. You can download a general overview and FAQ by clicking here.

11 Should I choose "Smart Giving" or "Smart Giving Pro”?

Smart Giving is built to serve churches of all sizes. But if you plan to handle a high volume of giving (more than $50,000/monthly), choosing Smart Giving Pro will serve you better with volume based processing.
