Text to Donate phone image


Our easy, mobile-first method for capturing contributions when donors are on the go. Donors text a custom code (only accessible on U.S. phone carriers) and give via a secure fundraising page.

Why Nonprofits Love It

Easy Mobile Giving

Give supporters the ability to donate any amount from their mobile phone.

Unlimited Text Campaigns

Create as many unique text codes as you need for all your campaigns, events, and more.

Absolutely Free

As part of our Forever Free Pledge, nonprofit members get unlimited, free access to Text-to-Donate.
We're enthusiastically making the switch to Give Lively. To be frank, the platform is so good that we'd pay for it, but we're also thrilled to get it for free.
