About

Lepton handles all your Christian giving on your phone.

Giving

With Lepton, it is quicker and easier to discover churches, exciting ministries and projects, and to join with thousands of others in giving generously.

If you ever feel short of time, money or awareness of good projects to give to; if you think your gifts won’t make much difference; if you wish you had great tools to help get your giving organized... then Lepton is for you.

Lepton helps you to give a little, a lot. With Lepton, when you look back, you will see that it was easier than you had thought...to be more generous than you had thought possible. One Lepton at a time.

Lepton

What is a Lepton? The poor widow who gave two tiny copper coins to the Temple (the widow’s ‘mite’ in Mark 12:41f) was described by Jesus as being more generous than those who gave large gifts out of their surplus. The coins she gave were Leptons - the least valuable coin in circulation in Jerusalem at the time. It is thought that the Lepton was worth about six minutes of average wages at the time.

We believe that one way to grow in generosity is to give a little, a lot. Lepton helps you do that.

For Churches & Nonprofits

Lepton helps you to equip your supporters for generosity. Lepton helps them to discover your church or project and to engage with you, to give more easily and to share more freely with their friends.
