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.
