About Tithely

When Tithely CEO Dean Sweetman walked into a Starbucks one morning in 2012 to order a latte, he never dreamed that the visit would be the start of Tithe.ly.

After using Starbucks’ new mobile ordering system for the first time, Dean had an idea. If I can use my smartphone to order a coffee, why can’t I use my smartphone to give to church?

This simple question was the beginning of Tithely. Dean’s son Barnabas developed the first version of Tithely in 6 months, and Dean launched the mobile app to the church he pastored in Atlanta.
But it wasn’t until 2014 that Tithely began to take off. Dean teamed up with Frank Barry and Steve Klein to bring Tithe.ly to a wider audience of churches.

Fast forward 8 years, a global pandemic, and a few company mergers later, and Tithely now serves over 37,000 churches worldwide. Our core mission has always remained the same: To serve the Church and advance the Kingdom of God with simple, effective, and affordable church technology.
