Text to Give

You can set up "Text to Give" in three easy steps:

1. Create a new contact on your phone for the “Text to Give” service, giving the new contact any name of your own choosing. Enter 855-801-3100 as the new contact’s phone number.

2.  Create your new account for the SecureGive online giving service. (NOTE: If you already have an account, jump to Step 3. To begin your SecureGive account setup, text to your new contact the following: “GIVE $(amount)” (example: GIVE $1). Click on the link in the text response you receive on your phone to set up your account and payment information on Ginghamsburg’s SecureGive service. You may also go directly to ginghamsburg.org/give to set up your SecureGive account.

SPECIAL NOTE: The dollar amount you name above is not going to be a real donation. It is simply part of the setup process.

3.  Authorize your account. When your SecureGive account information is complete, text “Give $(amount)” (example: GIVE $150) to the number again, and click on the link in the response once more. (NOTE: This time the amount you enter WILL be your actual donation amount.) To confirm your identity, for this first donation only you will finish authorizing it by signing in to your SecureGive account. Wait for the confirmation text, then respond with “Y” to say “Yes, I’d like to confirm my first donation.” 

Congratulations! Now that you have completed this ONE TIME authorization process, you can text to give at anytime from anywhere. From here on, simply text “GIVE dollar sign” and any amount to 855-801-3100.
