Churches and communities are the moral wing of any society, where they make sure the donations are used well to deploy community-building activities. But, busy as people and contributors get, you must pivot to technology-driven solutions that donate as easy as it can get. Church text-to-give solutions can be your way.
What is text-to-give?
For churches and communities, text to give technology has popped up as a very effective solution. This technology-driven solution helps people to donate using SMS services. Each donor is allotted a card that is linked to their cell phone number. It is used to send a one-time donation by simply texting the amount to a giving number. It is very safe, and people would be happy to be able to keep a track of their monetary contribution to society. It is much better than the ineffective cheque writing procedure, where you can lose it cause damage to it and the donation money goes down. And definitely, better than money as not many people love to walk around with a lot of money with them.
How does text-to-give work?
The following steps will help you understand how church text-to-give work:
- Step#1: Donor Texting To A Dedicated Number
