Text to Give allows donors to text how much they want to give to support your nonprofit—directly from their smartphones. Other platforms rely on payments processing through mobile phone provider bills, which can be costly and slow. With Aplos, donors can give securely, control their payment preferences, set up recurring donations, and cover transaction fees. You receive your gifts quickly and all donations automatically flow into your accounting in Aplos.
