Vanco Extends Ministry Partner Relationship the United Methodist Church Through 2024


Vanco, an industry leader in donation and payment technology for churches, is happy to announce we have extended our role as a Ministry Partner with the United Methodist Church.

Our relationship with UMC’s General Council on Finance and Administration (GCFA) will last through 2024.

“GCFA is excited to renew our long-standing relationship with Vanco as a Ministry Partner. Our Partnership Program provides cost-saving solutions and products to the UMC Connection,” Kellie Schmeal, GCFA Relationship Director said. “Through these solutions, UMC ministries are able to focus their savings on vital mission work and disciple-making, which also aligns with Vanco’s eGiving and engagement solutions.”   

Through our partnership, UMC churches can access special pricing on a range of Vanco services including online giving tools and member-engagement technology.

Vanco helps churches thrive by providing online giving tools that use a church’s own photos and stories, a church engagement app to keep members connected, and a variety of other giving options to encourage giving to church ministries. Vanco offers a variety of plans designed to fit individual churches’ needs. The Vanco giving platform integrates with multiple church management software providers so churches are not required to change software. Churches that use Vanco Faith see an average increase in giving of 26%. Vanco is committed to making contribution allocation easier without requiring churches to change their software.

Vanco provides services to more than 3,000 United Methodist churches and ministries.

“Vanco is pleased to be extending our existing partnership with GCFA as a Ministry Partner for three additional years. We have partnered with GCFA for many years because their focus aligns well with Vanco’s mission to help organizations who are doing tremendous work by enriching the communities they serve. These past many months have been transformational for the ways churches worship and serve their members. This has sparked significant innovations in our online giving platform and church community smartphone app. It has also led us to designing exciting new products we will be bringing to market this fall to make virtual services a more cohesive and engaging church experience,” said Shawn Boom, CEO of Vanco. “We’re excited to introduce these new tools to UMC churches to help them thrive in the new landscape.”

At Vanco, we know how convenience impacts giving. Our online giving tools increase donations by an average of 26%. That’s why we designed our software to simplify donations, making it the best online giving for churches. More than 25,000 churches and counting trust Vanco to help their ministries thrive.
