Text an amount to
Donate By Text
To donate by text, you simply:
Text the amount you’d like to give to our text-to-give number (e.g. $50). Remember to include a space between your dollar amount and your keyword. If you submit $50Missions, you will receive a “Sorry, not sure what you meant” error message. The proper format must be $50 Missions in order for the command to be received properly.
If you have donated by text before, you’ll receive a text in response confirming that your gift has been received successfully and you’re done.
If it’s the first time you are donating by text, you’ll be sent a message that says, “It looks like you are a new giver; to begin: (link provided). It will be a link to the church’s online giving page. Clicking on the link you will be asked to supply your payment method (credit card, debit card, or bank account). This payment source will then be linked with your phone number so that, in the future, all you will need to do is text in the amount. (You will not need to re-enter your payment information.)
If you didn’t specify a fund by keyword, donations will automatically go to the General Fund.
Example giving by keyword: $50 missions
Note: Donors can only give to one fund at a time.
