How Non-profits/Charities Uses Text Messaging
For non-profit organizations and charities, this software is integral to processing donations, scheduling social events, and sharing information promptly.
You can send, schedule, and manage non-profits and charities’ text messages to share current news about communities and ongoing events, recruiting volunteers, and collecting donations. It’s a great way to provide regular updates for members or individuals who sign up for weekly or monthly events or projects that require volunteers and donations.
Text messaging and SMS services are commonly used by most people, even more often than making a phone call. Texting is quick and efficient and provides immediate updates and responses to inquiries, a confirmation of your donation, or an invite to a scheduled event.
Bulk text messaging, recurring texts, scheduled texts, two-way messaging, and other methods of communication are all commonly used to create an effective network and regular updates to members of an organization and the public.
Promotional vs. Transactional Text Messages for Non-profit/Charities
Charities and non-profits can build a solid group of steady members or contributors to their organizations by using both transactional and promotional messages.
Promotional messages let members of a charity know about upcoming fundraising events, training and volunteer opportunities, and community socials in your local area. Transactional messages play a role in setting appointments for volunteers to commit for specific dates and times throughout the week, timely reminders, and confirmations when you donate.
While promotional texts and SMS messages provide current and potential members with marketing and reminders, transactional messages are more specific to a specific appointment, commitment, or financial donation.
Within a non-profit’s membership, groups can be defined to receive specific messages en masse when they sign up. For example, a group of volunteers participating in a particular campaign or fundraiser can opt to receive updates by text about progress, including videos and photos sent by SMS.

Do you need to send a reminder to members or clients about an upcoming fundraising gala or volunteer conference? Recurring texts are sent at specific times, such as every four weeks or as a reminder just before a meeting or event, to provide pertinent details and ensure you save the date.
2-way messaging allows volunteer coordinators, Board members of a non-profit, and other key individuals and groups to communicate directly with other individuals or members. This feature is ideal for creating custom events or appointments to discuss a campaign or donation.
Automated, scheduled texts can remind members individually without having to input and send the information manually. You can program a reminder for a volunteer’s shift or an automated text to confirm when a member sends an inquiry, letting them know their question or concern will be answered within a specific time frame.
Organizations & User Management
With TextSpot, your account is an organization and each organization can have unlimited users. If you’ve got multiple people within your non-profit that you would like to allow to send text messages, simply add them as a user to your account at no additional charge.

Organizing appointments and events are more accessible than ever with apps like Square to receive donations or purchase tickets to galas and fundraisers.
