Messaging

Giving has never been easier

All six ways to give are packed into one easy-to-use and highly secure platform that has been tailor-made for churches and ministries.

Inbox keeps your messages organized

Offer your church members several ways to give online. With Tithely Online Giving you can add a church donation form and make it simple for your members to give on your church website vs. redirecting them to a third party giving page. Your giving form will be mobile optimized, ensuring your donors have a delightful experience when giving on the go.

Creates automated messages

Church text giving and text-to-donate is hands down the fastest and most convenient way to give! Plus, it’s kinda fun. Once you have your dedicated church text-giving number, members can give to church in a text message.

Emailing with Tithely Messaging

Give in seconds with just a couple of taps with our free online giving app. Designate a gift to one or more funds in a single transaction. Schedule regular automated giving. Manage account and payment information, plus much more.

AI Smart Fields

Generate headlines, content, and even photos using AI in our Drag & Drop email builder!

Powerful AI features allow church admins that build drag and drop emails to use artificial intelligence to generate quality text and graphics. For example, you can enter in prompts like “meadow” to automatically generate photos of meadows they can use in the email. Or allow AI to suggest improvements to make your email headings and call to actions more catchy and creative.

This will help churches level up the quality of their emails and make connecting with church members easier than ever!

Our mission is to grow giving and engagement in the local church

Watch these success stories from churches who have grown giving and engagement by using Tithe.ly products.

Can people text a keyword to our Messaging number, and automatically be added to a list?

Yes! You can set up specific keywords that your members or guests can text. This will trigger a response where people can update their contact info, be added to a list, and even trigger a follow-up sequence. For example, if a guest at your church texted the word 'NEW,' the system could add them to a list called "Visitors" and start an automatic follow-up sequence that you setup which begins to engage the guest.

Can I import an existing contact list from Tithe.ly ChMS or another service?

Yes! We will provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to import contact lists from Tithe.ly ChMS and other services.

Am I charged for messages that contacts send to my church?

If someone sends a text message to the church, the message does not count against your allotted amount. Costs are only associated with outgoing messages you send to people in your contact list.

How do I know if a recipient has received a message?

You are able to tell that a message has been received successfully by the small green 'sent ✓' next to the message.

How do I send messages to multiple contacts at the same time, or to a list of people?

How do I make someone an admin?

There are two ways to make someone an admin. If you are adding a new contact, once you have filled in all of the contact information, click the checkbox next to 'Set as admin' before adding the new contact. If a contact already exists, simply edit the contact information and click the checkbox next to 'Set as admin' before saving changes.

Can we use our church domain for our Messaging email address?

The Tithe.ly text messaging service does not support custom domains, but you are able to use your church name with the domain @messaging.church. (i.e. firstbaptist@messaging.church)

Can I use a local number for Tithe.ly Messaging?

You are not able to use a local number for the Tithe.ly texting service. Due to the nature of sending church SMS blasts via an SMS platform, standard local numbers are not a good fit to use in Messaging. 800 numbers are authorized to send SMS messages to large groups of people, whereas local numbers are often flagged as spam when they send to multiple recipients at one time.

Can Tithe.ly Messaging use an existing phone number?

You are not able to use an existing phone number for Tithe.ly Messaging at this time, but our team will be exploring the possibility of using existing numbers in the future.

How do I setup a Messaging phone number and email address?

Can I use Tithe.ly Messaging on a mobile device?

Yes, Tithe.ly Messaging is compatible with all mobile devices via any mobile browser.

Can I use Tithe.ly Messaging outside the United States?

Tithe.ly Messaging email functionality is currently available to customers within the United States, Canada, and Australia. SMS text messages are currently only available in the United States and Canada. Our team is actively working to make Tithe.ly Messaging available in additional countries.

How long can a text message be?

The character limit for a single text message is 160 characters. When you send a text message over 160 characters, the messages will be split.

Large messages are segmented into 153 character segments, sent individually, and then rebuilt by the recipient's device. For example, a 161 character message will be sent as two messages, one with 153 characters and the second with 8 characters.

Do my 500 included messages roll over?

No, at the start of each billing period your 500 included messages will reset.
