What is Text-to-Give?
Text-to-Give is a way of making donations to BurlPres through the text app on your mobile device – whenever you want, wherever you want. Watch this quick video to see how easy it is to setup.
Setup & Management
Step #1 – Send your first text donation
Text-to-Give Code: 84321
From your text app, open a new message and type in 84321 as the “To” recipient.
On the text message line, type in the dollar amount you want to donate and send the message. Donation amount example: $5
You will immediately receive a setup prompt with setup link. Tap the link. Below is an example of how it will appear.
Step #2 – Pick your church
PICK YOUR CHURCH:
Based on your geographic location and your phone number, you will be prompted with a list of churches. Select BurlPres from the list.
Step #3 – Account Setup
EMAIL ADDRESS & PAYMENT METHOD:
You will be prompted to provide payment method and email address. Once that is entered, you will receive an email and text acknowledgment of your donation.
Whenever you donate via text-to-give, you will receive an email acknowledgement. In that email, you will see a link to directly and securely access your text-to-give account. Click that link if you wish to update your account; e.g., payment method .
DONE – THAT’S IT!
After Setup – Ongoing
Once you are all set up, all donations thereafter will be a single text to 84321!
What if you want to donate to a fund other than the default? Simply specify the fund code with your donation amount, at the time of texting. If no fund code is entered after your dollar amount, the donation will default to General Gifts. Text-to-Give example:
