TEXT DONATIONS?? – It’s TRUE!

ONE-TIME gifts may be offered as often as you’d like via a simple text message!  After the initial setup of account information during your first contribution, you can celebrate the ease and efficiency of sending a numeric text message to deliver your gifts to us.  That’s right, no more website hassles or mishaps in the checkout process!  Send a text to 84321 with the numeric amount you’d like to donate (ie – $25).  If it’s your first text donation, the automatic system will send you a secure link to connect our church and setup your account profile.  Click that link, search for First United Methodist Church New Braunfels and enter the requested info. Once completed, it will process your gift.  Then, for future donations,  just text the desired numeric amount of your offering to 84321, and you’re set!  Payments will process through Stripe.

Scared of making a boo-boo?  You have 2 hours (increased from 30 minutes, originally) to text REFUND before your donation is processed – and system will cancel the transaction, no questions asked!

Try it out!  And, let us know what you think!

*NOTE:  Text-to-give can only be setup with one organization at a time, so you cannot utilize this platform for multiple churches/organizations!*

HELPFUL TEXT COMMANDS 

REFUND – Donors donating using a CARD can issue this command within two hours of donating to initiate an automatic refund. This isn’t a cancellation, but is a refund, so this donation will show as refunded on the donor’s profile.

MISTAKE – Donors donating using ACH can issue this command within two hours of donating to cancel their donation. This will cancel the donation before it’s processed, so there will be no record of a cancelled donation on the donor’s profile. (DO NOT USE “REFUND” COMMAND FOR ACH CANCELLATIONS.)

STOP/START – The STOP command immediately disables Text-to-Give for the donor. The START command will lift any carrier blocks and allow the donor to use Text-to-Give in the future.

HELP – This will prompt a response message back to the sender. If the sender is an active Text-to-Give donor, they’ll receive a link to a help page with tips on how to use Text-to-Give.
