When asked what they would change, they said they would plan ahead more next year and include the Text to Give information on their printed materials. Also, there were some cell phone service issues as the event was hosted under a metal roof. They are confident that if that were not the case, an even larger percentage would have been donated through Text to Give.
As many in attendance were current supporters, their payment information and phone number were already stored in REACH – saving them time and making the Text to Give process even easier. Others simply had to fill out the one-time form to submit their contact and payment information. Since their information is now stored, they will only need to confirm that the last four digits on their credit card and the donation amount are correct when texting in a donation in the future.
