Willow Creek Community Church is a movement of Christ followers who are passionate about worshipping Jesus, growing in faith, and reaching those who do not have a relationship with God. Since 2005, My Well has been helping Willow by providing the best giving solution for their ministry.
In 2016, My Well only offered Payment Processing, so Willow had to sign a contract with PushPay despite their outrageously high fees and ACH surcharges because they needed a donor management system. For Karen Spears, the accounts receivable manager at Willow, from the beginning it was all about the profit for PushPay. Once we developed our full suite of tools on the My Well Giving Platform, we were able to support everything Willow needed.
It feels like we are all a team. My Well supports the Church.

Since switching to My Well’s Giving Platform, Willow has experienced an exponential amount of savings. These additional funds helped them exceed their ministry and financial goals. With My Well's longstanding relationship with Rock RMS we were able to work alongside the team at Willow to best guide them in implementing the platform for their congregation. Givers were motivated to switch from PushPay more quickly because My Well allows for more of their gifts to go towards ministry.
Karen Spears noted the contrast with using My Well, “My Well’s customer service is fabulous, that was a big difference from PushPay. There is always a quick response and it feels like we are all a team. My Well supports the Church.”
Why My Well?
Overall, the most impactful parts of Willow Creek’s switch to My Well has been the advanced giving tools provided, the incredible savings, and the ease of implementation. “My Well just has the full package,” says Karen Spears. They have the tools for churches to help their donors become consistent givers.
