A substitute for traditional pledge cards, Text PLEDGE campaigns are intended for a variety of charitable causes. Text PLEDGE allows organizations of any size to collect text message donations in any amount. For example, “Text CMH, your name plus a pledge amount to 55678 to pledge a donation to The Children’s Museum of Houston.”
Donors send a text message with a unique keyword, their pledge amount, and name to a designated 5-digit shortcode — for example, “GIVE 1000 Jane Smith″ would be a $1000 pledge amount from Jane Smith.”
mGood’s online client portal captures your donor’s pledge amount, name, and phone number. Your staff downloads this report and contacts the donor to process their pledge transaction. Once the pledge is processed, you’ll immediately receive the donated funds in your bank account.
Text PLEDGING is a great way to incorporate text message fundraising into your next live event or fundraiser. Since there are no eligibility requirements, your account can be activated with short lead-times. Also, because your organization contacts the donor to collect the funds pledged, you have the ability to manage donor relations and obtain new contact information.
mGood’s Text to Screen generates excitement at live events, and is the perfect companion for your Text PLEDING campaign. When your donors send a pledge via text, their name and pledged amount appear on the screen. You can easily visualize your fundraising progress in real-time, and donors can immediately see, as well as those around them, the difference donors made in reaching a goal amount.
