You may not know this, but it’s time we read you in …
Not a week goes by without us pushing up new code. That’s right! We’re always improving the Tithe.ly product. It may not always be obvious or even noticeable, but it’s happening!
We do this because we’re firm believers in continuous small improvements that lead to long term health and success for churches and ministries that rely on the tools we’ve built to encourage and grow giving.
But then there are times like these where we push out new features and tools that we can’t help but shout from the rooftops! Mostly because we rely heavily on your feedback and requests to guide Tithe.ly product development. We’re always listening … and it brings us great satisfaction and joy to push things live that you’ve been asking for.
So … without further adieu … and after weeks of head-down development and testing, we’re happy to let you know about some exciting new Tithe.ly church giving tools!
- Giving Dashboard — A simple way to view giving performance.
- Deposit Reporting — A simple way to view deposit details and do reconciliation.
- Multi-admin Support — Giving you the ability to allow more than one person to access your Tithe.ly account.
- Cover My Fees™ — Enabling your generous givers to increase their gift by small amounts so that more of their intended gift makes it to you.
Tithe.ly Giving Dashboard
Understanding how your church is “performing” in the area of financial giving and generosity is an important aspect of shepherding and growing your church. It’s a spiritual discipline, one that Jesus talked about plenty.
With that in mind, we wanted to make it simple for you to see a few key indicators at a glance (weekly average, # of new donors, average gift size, percentage recurring), and help you see giving trends over time for giving amount, number of givers, and number of gifts.
You can set the date range and even see the dashboard for each of your campuses if you’re a multi campus/site church.
As you can imagine, paying attention to these metrics (along with many other things) on a regular basis will help you understand your giving and provide you insights for how to lead and shepherd your group.
Be sure to log into your Tithe.ly account and give the new giving dashboard a look!

Tithe.ly Deposit Reporting
For the accountants, bookkeepers, and treasurers out there … we’ve just released the report that is bound to make all your Tithe.ly reporting dream come true! :)
With the new Tithe.ly deposit reporting tools you can see a list of each deposit made by Tithe.ly into your bank account. As you can see from the example above, you’ll see deposit date, gross raised, Tithe.ly fees, net deposit amount, and info on the bank account that the funds were transferred to.
Beyond the list of deposits with summary information, you can click to see deposit details for each deposit.
The detail report for each deposit will show you the breakout by fund / designation (see example) and transaction level detail for each gift. This level of detail in each deposit report makes reconciliation and proper bookkeeping a breeze!
Be sure to log into you account and give it a look!
