Text Giving Guides

4. At this point your donation will process.

5. You will see a confirmation text showing your donation and registration were successful.

Tips for Future Text-Giving Donations:

• If you only text a monetary value, the funds are attributed to your church’s default fund.

(Ex: $50 = will go to default fund)

• If you text “Funds” you will receive a reply text including a list of the fund names they can choose

to donate to.

• If you text the amount + fund name– the funds will be attributed to that fund name.

(Ex: $10 Building)

• If the fund name you texted does not match- you will receive a message with a list of fund

names for you to choose from. Respond with the number of the correlating fund.

• If you text “Help” you will receive a reply text that states: “To give enter the amount you want to

give, such as 100. You can also give to a specific fund by typing it after your amount, such as 100

building fund”.

• If you text “Reset” you will receive a reply text that states: “Saved card information successfully

removed. Please register your card information again when making your next gift by texting an

amount to this number.
