Text-to-give is a great way to direct donors to your fundraising page. Use it at live events, on printed materials, and in other places where a receiving a link to quickly access your fundraising page would be useful.
Just select a unique keyword for your campaign and let donors know what it is. They'll text that keyword to our number, then receive a text back with a link to your campaign. They can then make a donation or purchase right from their phone in seconds.
Text-to-give is ideal for:
- Dinners and galas: Provide attendees a keyword they can text to purchase items, bid on auction items, and make donations.
- Marketing materials: Display a text-to-give keyword on your printed marketing materials.
- Radio and TV: Promote your keyword in radio and TV spots, podcasts, and in other media.
Text-to-give is a useful feature for any type of fundraiser, so don't feel limited by the examples above!
How it works
- Create a unique keyword for your campaign (like 'GIVE2018').
- Share this keyword along with the phone number 855-202-2100.
- Donors text the keyword to 855-202-2100 and receive a link to complete their donation.
