Put more money back in your HQ

Keep daily tasks on track

ShelbyHQ programs are designed around the way your denomination prefers to work. In turn, you save time and energy in your day reducing unnecessary burden that other systems can cause.

Our training consultants understand how denominational headquarters operate. We’ll help you customize ShelbyHQ to ensure you get the built-out features that work best for your church or nonprofit headquarters.

Donors and Gifts

Robust Donors and Gifts Application

Accept tithes and gifts online, manage gifts and pledges, track sub-donor accounts for dioceses, district offices, and para-church organizations, sponsor missionaries with full reporting, and much more.
