Extend your fundraising potential with the most powerful engagement tool on the planet: text messaging. Givebutter already supports Text-to-Donate, allowing your supporters to text a code and receive a link back (inbound SMS). Now, with Text Message Invites, you can send texts directly to your supporters with a link to support any of your fundraising campaigns or events on Givebutter (outbound SMS).

How it works

Givebutter makes it incredibly easy for you and your supporters to send text messages to potential donors, volunteers, event attendees, and more. Without writing a single line of code, purchasing a unique phone number, or even paying a dollar out pocket, you can create a free Givebutter account and start sending Text Message Invites in a matter of minutes. As with all Givebutter features, Text Message Invites are completely free.

Here's how easy it is to get started:

  1. After creating a Fundraise or Events campaign in your Givebutter Dashboard, visit your campaign page and click "Share" the top
  2. Enter any phone number and optionally add their First/Last Name for added personalization and an Email Address to also send a message to their email address
  3. Your invite will appear below – you will have the ability to track whether they have converted and cancel the automated reminders we send
  4. Supporters will receive a personalized text with their name and your trackable donation link, right to their phone! Did we mention this works with Venmo?

Automated reminders are sent twice after the initial text, three days apart. Reminders are canceled if the supporter "converts" by using the same email/phone number in their transaction details, or by clicking the link we generate and completing the transaction form there.

Givebutter is one of the most innovative and engaging platforms I've seen in that it successfully mobilizes young people to actively fundraise and donate around the causes they care most about. The Givebutter team is dynamic, passionate, and thoughtful - they're an absolute joy to work with.
