Mobile Giving for Nonprofits

Collect $5 and $10 mobile donations via SMS Giving

SUMOTEXT is 1 of 6 application providers approved by the Mobile Giving Foundation to provide sms giving solutions to qualifying 501(c)(3) organizations. By securing and promoting Text-2-Give keywords on one of our mobile short codes, your supporters can send a text message and confirm to have a $5 or $10 donation applied to their mobile phone bill.

But as any experienced mobile fundraiser will tell you, the success of your sms giving program will depend heavily on your use of mobile marketing and your commitment to leverage Text-2-Join keywords. Our Text-2-Join programs seamlessly integrate with your Text-2-Give programs and enable you to engage donors and volunteers throughout the year with time-sensitive news, alerts, and invitations that increase loyalty, attendance, and participation.

Role of the MGF

The Mobile Giving Foundation (MGF) facilitates the applications, vets all Non-Profit Organizations (NPO's), and certifies all mobile giving programs. They also collect funds generated through charitable giving campaigns from the carriers and distribute the funds directly to the recipient charity.
