Text Giving Instructions

Donating By Text

To donate by text, simply:

  1. Text the amount you'd like to give to your (904)758-8838 (e.g. $50)1
  2. If you've donated by text before, you'll receive a confirmation text in response that your gift has been received successfully and you're done
  3. If it's the first time you are donating by text, you'll be given a link and asked to supply your payment method (credit card, debit card, or bank account). This payment source will then be linked with your phone number so that, in the future, all you need to do is text in the amount and do not need to reenter your payment information.
