Allow your attenders to express generosity in a whole new way with Text Giving.

With Breeze's Text Giving, donors can give via credit card, debit card, or bank account (ACH), and can set up recurring giving, all by texting an amount to your church's Text Giving number! Your church can even customize your Text Giving and allow your donors to give to specific funds with the use of keywords (e.g. text "50 missions" to give to the missions fund). Learn more about how to set up Giving by Text.

  • Hi @pastor!

    You can see our online giving fees here: Online Giving Fees

    They are the same for both text and online giving. 

    Happy Breezing!

  • Someone has used text giving phone number to give twice over the last week or so; she is receiving a notice that I need to accept it on my end or the gift will be cancelled by the bank.  What do I do?

  • If we want to turn on the text to give feature for special fundraising opportunities, such as a specific mission, and then turn it off two weeks after the fact, what issues might we encounter?

    Thank you

  • Hi Sue! Christie here with Breeze! You have a great question about utilizing your Text to Give feature!

    Making use of this feature for a special fundraiser is a great idea and one that will assist this endeavor well. Once your fundraiser is over, you can certainly disable your Text to Give feature without any problems. I would advise you to wait a week to disable to be certain that all the transactions process accurately.

    You might find that this feature is so handy that you will continue to use it for regular donations!

    Keep up the great work Sue!

  • Hi Breezers!  Will users get text reminders or other "spam" texts if they start giving by text? We want this to function conveniently for people, but we don't want it to become another source of unwanted texts.  Thanks for all you do!

  • Hey @Kim!

    Great question! When it comes to utilizing Text Giving through Breeze, you can rest assured that your donors will not receive spam texts as a result. The text responses that they will receive are outlined here:
     
    If a person has donated by text before, they'll receive a text in response confirming that their gift has been received successfully and they're done.
     
    If it's the first time a person is donating by text, they'll be sent a message that says, "It looks like you are a new giver; to begin: (link). It will be a link to the church's online giving page. Clicking on the link they will be asked to supply their payment method (credit card, debit card, or bank account). This payment source will then be linked with their phone number so that, in the future, all they will need to do is text in the amount. (They will not need to re-enter their payment information.)
