With Funraise you have access to several modern SMS (mobile texting) communication and donation tools. You can send outbound SMS text messages to your supporters and configure text-to-give codes for automated mobile donation experiences.

Funraise's text engagement features are only available in the United States.

Get started

The first step to sending SMS messages or activating custom text-to-give codes is to create your organization's SMS number.

Send SMS Text Messages

⚠️ You can not send more than 200 messages per day. This feature is meant for strategic and specific donor communication and not bulk sending.

Text-to-Give codes

  • You can create custom text-to-give codes, like DONATE or GIVE

  • When a custom code is sent to your SMS number, your custom automated message will be sent as a reply. Most often, your automated message will be a link to a donation page.
