Text Giving

Giving by text is as simple as sending a text message to a friend!

For churches and ministries, text-to-give is revolutionizing the giving experience. Each donor has a card on file linked to their cell phone number and can send a one-time donation or set up a recurring gift at any time by simply texting in the dollar amount to a giving number.

Church text to give allows anyone to give your organization by sending a text message with a dollar amount and automatically charging their card on file. It combines the convenience online giving with the fulfillment people get by of giving a donation in the moment.

Step 1

Your donors can now easily give at any time with one simple click. They start the process by texting “GIVE” to your dedicated 10-digit giving phone number.

Step 2

Next, your donors quickly fill out their giving information and credit/debit card or ACH details. Once complete, the information is securely saved for future gifts.

Step 3

After the filling in their giving information and their first gift is made, your supporter is thanked, sent a text message and an email with the gift receipt included on your behalf.

Step 4

Still allowing members to enter credit or debit card info on envelopes? No problem! With Tithe.ly you can process all of those gifts in bulk or one at a time. Long gone are the Monday mornings spending hours doing data entry.
