Text2Give is a tremendous fundraising tool that continues to grow in popularity among nonprofits. Also known as text-to-donate, this software solution provides donors the opportunity to give directly from their mobile device – anywhere and at any time.
Get started is easy – the beauty of Text2Give is its easy setup time and ability to use year-round for unlimited campaigns. As you consider how Text2Give fits into your fundraising strategy, here’s a couple things to keep in mind.
So, here’s a quick review on how a Text2Give campaign works. Donors are prompted to text a keyword to your organization’s code using their smartphone. This results in a message being texted to them, with a link to a mobile donation page. They choose their gift amount, complete their payment information, and contribute to your cause. That simple!
It is fast, easy, secure, and core to some of the most powerful and creative fundraising strategies that nonprofits are using today.
More and more nonprofits host multiple fundraising events throughout the year. Every kind of fundraiser can be the perfect event to add mobile giving. From a gala, a golf outing, a luncheon, or a charity run, walk, or ride, annual campaign or personal fundraiser, Text2Give amplifies fundraising by making it easy to give and give on the go.
We’ve not seen anyone use skywriting yet, but hey – there’s a first for everything!
Anymore, text messaging is commonplace for most people. Still, your donors may need a little coaching in order for you to make the most of your Text2Give campaign. Here’s a couple tips:
As with many other types of campaigns, have a few key donors ready to give when you first launch your Text2Give campaign. Putting those first few donations on the board helps get things off and running. And when we say “on the board,” we mean that literally. So, whether it’s a stylish progress thermometer on your Text-to-Give donation webpage or on a Scoreboard, projected prominently at your event, show off those numbers and acknowledge your donors in real-time. The momentum will grow and so will your total raise!
So, your supporter just gave their donation, now what? It’s not like you can reach out, shake their hand, look them in the eye, and express your appreciation in person. Be sure to invest time and thought into what your donor sees after their donation is completed.
