At first, Text to Give / Online Donation campaigns appear to be very similar to Fund a Need Campaigns. While both take advantage of mobile fundraising technology (text message and online donations), there are a few key differences between the two formats.
Text to Give / Online Donations
- Allows for general donations to your cause or event
- Payment is made immediately at the time of donation
- Allow for recurring donations
- Donor's name and progress towards fundraising goal will appear on screen
- Please note that the text option will only work for certain countries (including US and Canada). Please check with us if this will work in your country.
Fund a Need
- Allows for pledges towards specific donation levels or causes. Examples include sponsor a patient, sponsor a meal, support a project
- Donors can pay immediately or later
- Does not allow for recurring donations or donor's name on screen
- Progress towards fundraising goal and pledges per level will be displayed
