Features in this article may not be included in every Funraise plan.

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.

Getting started

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

Sending SMS Text Messages

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.

Send limits

The base plan for Text Engagement includes 200 messages per day. Both outbound messages and text-to-give automated replies count against your daily send counts. Inbound messages sent to your number do not count against your daily send counts.

We offer several tiers for increased daily send limits. Reach out to us to learn more about upgrading your send limits.
