Your organization must be A2P 10DLC compliant in order to send SMS messages from Funraise.

A2P 10DLC refers to a system in the United States that allows organizations to send Application-to-Person (A2P) type messaging via standard 10-digit long code (10DLC) phone numbers. Carries, such as AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile enforce A2P 10DLC registration.

In many cases, you do not need to take any action to become A2P 10DLC compliant. Funraise is working behind the scenes (and taking care of the costs) to enable your A2P 10DLC compliance. Funraise will begin the registration process when you activate an SMS number. The registration process can take 2-3 weeks to complete.

In some cases, your organization's registration process may require more actions or information β€” our team will be in touch with you if this is the case.

Basic requirements to be approved for A2P 10DLC
