Text giving can be an enormous benefit to your ministry for several reasons. It’s the fastest way to donate, it reaches multiple generations of donors and it makes giving simple from practically anywhere in the world. If you’ve been on the fence about adding text giving to your ministry, or if it’s a platform you’ve already implemented, these next few tips are sure to grow your giving.

Although we strive to make all of our giving platforms simple and intuitive, text to give is still at the top of the list. Once a donor’s profile is created, it takes less than 30 seconds to complete a text transaction. It would be difficult to find another platform that makes giving more simple than that! Within seconds of feeling led to give, a donor can financially contribute to your ministry.

Many of the ministries I’ve spoken with assume that text giving is specifically geared toward the younger generation. While the millennials in your organization may be drawn to text giving, that’s not to say they’re the only ones. In most of the ministries we serve, when text giving is offered we see it reach a variety of ages. In fact, I’ve previously spoken with a church who shared a story with me about one of their donors who is in his 90’s and strictly uses text giving for all of his donations!

If you’re not currently using text to give, you may be missing out on the opportunity to reach new givers within your ministry. We offer all four giving platforms – kiosk, online, mobile and text – so that every person can give comfortably through the method of their choice.
