About Text Giving

Text Giving lets donors contributors give to your church using their smart phones. 

 When donors give via text, they text Contributors text your church's keyword, along with a dollar amount, to 73256.

...

Your church's name displays in the confirmation text, payment form, and on the donorcontributor's receipt. Within Access ACS, text gifts are processed just like online contributions.

Donors Contributors can give via text using debit cards, credit cards, or ACH payments. It takes first-time donors contributors about 2 minutes to set up their payment method, which is saved for future text gifts.

Reserve Your Permanent Church Keyword

Donations Contributions are processed by your permanent church keyword. When contributors give via text, they text your church's keyword, along with the gift amount, to the 5-digit number. In the example above, the permanent church keyword is FBCMTP.  

You should choose a keyword that represents your church as a whole. Short, easy to remember keywords are best. The longer the word is, the more likely a donor contributor could enter a typo. Keywords are not case sensitive. 

...

On the Text Giving tab, you can assign fund keywords to each fund so donors people can contribute toward specific campaigns. 

...

For example, you can set up a fund keyword for the building fund. Your permanent church keyword is FBCMT, and your building fund keyword is BUILD. Donors Contributors can text FBCMTP BUILD 10 to give a $10 donation to the building fund. If the donor contributor doesn't include a fund keyword, the gift is allocated toward the default texting fund.
 

...

You must select a default fund. If the donor someone gives via text and doesn't include a fund keyword, the gift is allocated toward the default texting fund. Any text enabled fund can be the default fund, but normally this is a general fund. You can enter a fund keyword for your default fund, but you don't have to.
