What Is Text To Give?

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.

Giving Additional Gifts

Once a donor sets up Text to Give, future donations are completed with a single text from their cell phone.

Option 1:

Donors text "GIVE" + the donation amount they would like to give to your nonprofit's Text to Give number. EXAMPLE: GIVE 50

Option 2:

Donors text "GIVE" + the amount + a short code your organization has assigned to a specific purpose or campaign. EXAMPLE: GIVE 50 BUILDING

After sending a text to donate, people will receive an immediate confirmation text and an emailed gift receipt within 30 minutes.

Text to Give is an add-on feature in the Aplos Software Suite.

5 star review from Killeen Independent School District

We were looking for a program for our nonprofit that would provide a customer records management system, accounting system and credit card processing. Aplos provides all three at a very affordable price.

The donation management platform is worth it by itself. It's a very crucial part in bringing in money to non profits and Aplos allows you to track all of the data.
