Villanova University researched church involvement which led to the published book Why Catholics Don't Give.

Here are some curious data points from their research:

  • Churches that provide coffee and donuts after every worship opportunity have 5% higher giving on average
  • Churches that hold four potluck meals a year have 10% higher giving on average
  • Churches that have an active welcoming committee have 13% higher giving on average
