The internet has taken the world by storm since its inception to the world. However, it is not the only technology that has a place in the world of donations. The advent of texting of donations also has become a key part of many churches, ministries, non-profits, and political campaigns fundraising efforts. In fact, there are people who find this more convenient and tend to use these services more often than donating on the internet. The good news is that the use of either service still means the same for you. More money to keep your lights on and to extend the reach of your ministry, non-profit, or political campaign. Exactly what you need and want. The only thing you need to do is to pick a service that is willing to work with your business in a way that is beneficial for you both. It sounds easier than it really is, however.
You have to watch out for hidden fees when it comes to your donations. If you choose the wrong service to handle your donations then you will find that you will be bogged down in the mire of these fees. It could eat into your donations and make it extremely hard to make ends meet. You need to make sure that you know what you are getting into before you choose one of these services.
Surprises and Inconveniences Around Your Text Donations
Surprises, while you are in the thick of doing the job of your ministry, campaigning, or fighting for your cause will be a massive drain. It will make you far less effective at reaching your end goal. Sure, you are getting your donations in a way that is easy and convenient for your supporters but that money may not be going where you want it to go. It could be going to a corporation’s bank account where it cannot be used for your purposes. It is a little bit of a slap in the face because you are doing all the work. No one likes to sell or ask for money. Therefore, you should be getting as much of the donation as possible without hidden fees attached to the donations.

Therefore, getting text donations is a great thing to do but you have to watch your bottom line to make sure that it makes financial sense. You know best where you are trying to go and how much you are going to need to get there. You also know how tech-savvy your people happen to be. If they are not tech-savvy then you may have to train them to use the systems you implement. Why would you train them to use the system?
