Digital giving for churches is increasingly common, even to the point of becoming essential for receiving tithes and donations. At the same time, traditional giving via cash and check has been steadily decreasing. Text-to-give (or SMS giving) is one of the primary mediums of digital giving, with the others being through websites and mobile apps.
Text-to-give works just as its sounds: Your donors send a text to a phone number on their mobile phones, enter the amount they want to give, and submit their donation. Their gift is then drawn from their bank account, debit card, or credit card, and sent to your organization’s account.
Benefits of text-to-give
Text giving should be an important part of how your church collects donations for two major reasons: convenience and security.
