What is Text to Give?

Simply put, Text to Give enables people to give to your church via text message. With SecureGive, it’s an incredibly fast and convenient way for your congregation to give to your church. By sending a text message with a keyword and an amount (ex. Give 100) to your custom Text to Give phone number, they can complete a transaction in seconds. When pairing Text to Give with the whole SecureGive system, all of your church’s giving can be managed in one place, keeping administration simple for your team.

This is True Text to Give

Many options for text giving simply send a web link in a text message to complete an online transaction. This makes for a cumbersome giving experience that people are less likely to use. Text to Give from SecureGive enables true in-message giving. With the send of a message, your donors can give in seconds without ever having to open their web browser. All they have to do is text the keyword and amount (ex. Give 100), and then reply with “y” to confirm the transaction.

Administrative Tools that Save Your Church Time

Too often church leaders have to choose between software that’s user-friendly or software that’s robust and feature-rich. With SecureGive, you can have both.

Analytics Dashboard

SecureGive’s innovative analytics dashboard makes it easy for you to gain deep insights into your church’s giving at a glance. Quickly view trends in weekly, monthly, yearly, or custom date ranges.

Detailed Transaction Management

Drill down to individual member giving history, view donations by category, issues refunds, and so much more. With SecureGive, it's easy to see the big picture giving trends while also making detailed transaction management simple.

Manage Giving, Payments, and Campaigns in One Place

SecureGive makes it easy to keep giving, purchases and payments, and capital campaigns all in one system. Whether your church has one location or multiple campuses, contribution management is simple and all in one place.

Giving From the Platform They’re Already Using

Texting quickly became a dominant way we all connect. For most, it’s now an easy, fast, and convenient way to communicate. With SecureGive, giving is easy from the tool they’re already using - the text message. When you can enable your congregation to give from the tools they already use you remove barriers that prevent them from financially supporting your church.

Accept Payments and Purchases

SecureGive makes it easy to accept payments and purchases in the same system you use to accept donations. Simply assign a Text to Give keyword to a purchase category instead of a donation category. Whether your church has a weekday preschool program, sells merchandise, or collects money for the fall youth retreat, these transactions can all be done through SecureGive.

And, with access to all of SecureGive’s analytics, management is kept simple for your administrative team.

Integrate With Your Church Management System

Syncing your Text to Give, and all SecureGive platforms, with your church management system (ChMS) is seamless. SecureGive provides automated transaction downloads into the most popular management systems. If your church uses a ChMS that is not automated, the process is still quick and easy with CSV downloads that you can import directly into your system.

Featured Integrations

SecureGive syncs with over 20 management systems to streamline your workflow and save countless hours every week. Here are a few of the most popular SecureGive integrations used by churches:

You Choose the Keywords

And, you can use multiple keywords. So if you want the keyword “Give” to designate the donation to your general budget, “Build” to designate the donation to your building fund, and “Missions” to designate the donation to your missions ministry, you can easily do that with SecureGive.
