Since your screen will automatically refresh frequently, you can just set it and forget it. As donations come in, the progress bar totals will dynamically update, you’ll get text alerts in real time, you’ll receive email updates every 15 minutes, and your mercury will rise to the new levels — all without your having to do anything!
SMS donations increase your nonprofit’s overall reach, giving you new audiences that you wouldn't otherwise be able to connect with. As people move towards mobile giving, a text-to-donate service positions your organization to meet prospective donors where they are.
Some members won’t want to download an app; offer them text to give. Others won’t want to give by texting. Offer them an app. Use both to help you bring in more money.
JustGiving reported that they’ve seen an increase in donation activity and conversation on WhatsApp, which is now the most-used messaging app in the world. Other mobile fundraising platforms, like Good Exchange, are also integrating WhatsApp into their fundraising services.
