When a donor initiates their first Text2Give donation, our system will respond with a message that includes a setup link. Tapping this link will take them to their mobile browser, and walk them through these steps:
Find your church: Giving will use the donor's geographical location and phone number to suggest churches nearby (within 20 miles). If your church is not listed, or the donor isn't within the geolocation radius, they can search by your church's address, city, or ZIP code, and filter results by church name.
Log in to your profile: After choosing a church, donors will be asked to enter their name and email address to either create a new donor profile (first-time donors) or log in to access their existing donor profile (returning donors).
Add or select a payment method: First-time donors can add a payment method to be used for this initial donation and future donations. Existing donors can log in to their profile to select a previously saved payment method.
Submit the donation: Once a donor submits their donation, this will initiate that first donation and enable Text2Give for future use.
After setup, donors can simply text their donation amount to 84321 to initiate an online donation.
