To activate text engagement features like outbound messaging or text-to-give codes, you will first need to activate an SMS Number.

โ˜๏ธ Text engagement features are only available in the United States

โ˜๏ธ A2P 10DLC registration and approval required
After creating a new SMS number, Funraise will register your SMS campaign to receive approval for bulk sending. During this registration process you may experience a delay of 2-3 weeks before this number can be used to send messages. Learn more about A2P 10DLC compliance.

Activate an SMS number

1. From Settings > Click Text-to-Give

2. Click Add Number

3. Enter your local area code > Click Create Number

4. All done! Wait for the system to finish processing and your new Organization SMS Number will appear. As noted above, it can take up to 2-3 weeks for your organizations number to be approved and ready to use to send outbound messages.
