What is Text to Give?
Text to Give is a fundraising method that empowers donors to give to organizations via their smartphones. Using their phones’ texting application, supporters can donate to their favorite nonprofits.
How does Text to Give work?
- 1) You create a Donorbox campaign for your fundraising project and enable text-to-give.
- 2) Your donor sends a text with your custom keyword (or campaign ID) to the toll-free number 1-(855)-575-7888 or shortcode 801801.
- 3) Donorbox replies to your donor with a text message that contains a link to your campaign page.
- 4) Your donor clicks the link on their smartphone, fills out the donation form, and completes their donation. That’s it!
And subsequent donations are even easier. They can be done instantly using repeat donation — no forms or websites are required. More below!

My organization is based outside the US – can I use Text to Give?
Donorbox’s text-to-give is based in the United States and Canada. Any supporters or donors based in the U.S. or Canada can use the Donorbox text-to-give feature. Our shortcode works in the US and the toll-free standard telephone number works in either the US or Canada. If a supporter is texting from outside the US, they could be susceptible to additional carrier charges. For your organization, there is no difference between a donation made from the US, Canada or another nation.
This Integration Requires
- A Donorbox account
- ½ hour of setup
- Vision and Enthusiasm!
- It’s just that simple.
