With the Text2Donate solution, donors can give to your mission in 10 seconds or less! All donors have to have is a phone to sends/receives text messages and has a mobile browser on the device. All your church/org has to do is announce this giving option (maybe via a mailer/flyer, social post, email blast, live at an event or church service or just on your website) and allow donors to text in your Text keyword to a 5-digit short code (76959).
Try it out right now with our fictitious non-profit, Save A Tree (this is tongue-in-cheek as you know, we’re Paperless!).
Text “SAT” to 76959 and you should receive an immediate text reply with a message and a giving link to go and try it out. When you click the link, it opens your browser and you can take a picture of your card (or type it in) and then easily gives in just seconds. The text donor receives an immediate email receipt.
Note: Because the Paperless Hosted Pages are secure, today’s mobile web browsers will allow the user to save their credit card profile on their device for fast, future donations.
Given the immense popularity of texting, “Text-to-Donate” or “Text-to-Give” campaigns are an excellent means of attracting new and diverse donors. Recipients can respond to your text campaigns by establishing donor profiles that allow them to donate effortlessly anywhere, and at any time. Once a donor profile is set up, donors can designate the charity, church, or non-profit they want to donate by text to, give any desired amount, and schedule any frequency of donation, including recurring mobile giving.
Don’t limit your organization to online giving alone—incorporate Text2Donate into your contribution portfolio.
