Does your organization have a celebrity spokesperson? Check out the “Goodygraph”— a personalized, digitally autographed photo from a celebrity, athlete, politician, delivered to the donor’s mobile phone or email in response to a text donation. Sharable on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media.
Text GIVING enables your organization to raise money through text message donations. Supporters of your cause simply text a keyword(s) to shortcode(s) and their $5 or $10 donation is applied to their cell phone bill. For example, “Text the word KID to 80100 to donate $5 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.”
Your organization must meet a few requirements, set forth by the Mobile Giving Foundation (MGF) and mobile carriers, to qualify for text GIVING. These include:
Once your Text GIVING campaign is live, anyone with a cell phone can text your organization’s unique keyword to a designated 5-digit shortcode and make a donation. They receive a text message asking them to reply “YES” to confirm their donation, which is applied to their next cell phone bill. It’s that easy. The donor can give to that keyword / shortcode combination up to 3X per month.
Donors’ $5 and $10 donations are applied directly to their cell phone bill with Text GIVING. The donation process is instant with no lengthy forms to complete or credit card information. Your donors will feel secure and be more likely to give again in the future. It’s the PERFECT fundraising instrument for large-scale events and/or ongoing, programmatic campaigns with wide visibility.
Collect text message donations directly through your website. Donor enters mobile phone number on website to donate a $5 or $10 donation.
