Expand your reach with free peer-to-peer texting

Givebutter’s texting software for nonprofits also enables peer-to-peer fundraising participants to send automated donation invites to their network. P2P texting campaigns are easy to set up and free to send.

Understand which SMS campaigns work best

Measure the effectiveness of your nonprofit text message marketing with built-in conversion tracking, UTM parameters, and message ROI. See which supporters opened, clicked, supported, bounced, or unsubscribed—and how much revenue each text campaign generated.
