Text Giving

Giving by text is one of the most simple and inclusive ways of engaging your donors

How does Text Giving work?

Text Giving enables your community to instantly support your cause by texting a keyword and donation amount, which will then be added to their phone bill or deducted from their credit.

Text Giving is highly adaptable, lending itself to many areas of fundraising. Keywords can live on social media, in print and broadcast media, and can thrive at events, too. Plus, you can get in touch with our team at any time to discuss strategy and ideas!
