Text to Give

text to give
1) Text the amount you’d like to give to our text-to-give number (864) 252-1540 (e.g. $50). Remember to include a space between your dollar amount and your keyword. If you submit $50Missions, you will receive a “Sorry, not sure what you meant” error message. The proper format must be $50 Missions in order for the command to be received properly.
Text one of the abbreviations below to give to a specific fund. All other text to give donations will go to our general Tithes and Offerings:
– TMBS (Women’s Thursday Morning Bible Study)
– Capital (Capital Funds)
– Missions (Mission Funds)

2) If you have donated by text before, you will receive a text in response confirming that your gift has been received successfully and your transaction is complete.

3) If this is your first time donating by text, you will be sent a message that says, “It looks like you are a new giver; to begin: (link provided). This will be a link to the church’s online giving page. Clicking on the link you will be 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 will need to do is text in the amount. (You will not need to re-enter their payment information.)

4) If you do not specify a fund by keyword, donations will automatically go to the default fund of Tithes. Example giving by keyword: $50 missions Note: Donors can only give to one fund at a time.
