Collect your donors names, email addresses and other contact information via simple text message.
How it Works
STEP 1: Donor Sees Your Call to Action
Advertise that your donors should send a text message with the primary account keyword and any additional information that you would like to capture.
STEP 2: Donor Initiates a Text Donation
A donor will compose a brand new message to the designated short code. Within the message field they will text in your primary keyword and their personal information you requested. The first word will be your primary account keyword and the second will be their name, email address, alumni year etc.
STEP 3: Donor Confirms Donation
After hitting send the donor will automatically receive a message back asking them to confirm their donation by replying YES. By replying YES they confirm the donation charge to their account and will receive an automatic thank you message for their donation.
STEP 4: Collect Donor Information
Easily track your donations in real time 24/7 by their secondary keyword through our online reports. View all incoming donor contact information and download reports to an excel file or PDF.
STEP 1: Give by Cell Agreement
Complete the Give by Cell Agreement and in the additional features section select Contact Collection. Once completed, email or fax back to us to get started.
STEP 2: Create Contact Collection
In your Give by Cell admin page, create your contact collection to gather donor information.
STEP 3: Promote
Advertise your short code and start collecting donor information!
Example: Lehigh University vs Lafayette College Mobile Donation Alumni Challenge
Lehigh University launched a “giving challenge” that allowed students, alumni and other supporters to text LEHIGH to 20222 at any time and make a $10 donation to the school’s Lehigh Fund. Donors also had the option to text in their full name and class year so that amounts could be recognized and matched to the donor.
