Text Message Invites (SMS)



Last updated: 
July 31, 2020

Extend your fundraising potential with the most powerful engagement tool on the planet: text messaging. Givebutter already supports Text-to-Donate, allowing your supporters to text a code and receive a link back (inbound SMS). Now, with Text Message Invites, you can send texts directly to your supporters with a link to support any of your fundraising campaigns or events on Givebutter (outbound SMS).

How it works

Givebutter makes it incredibly easy for you and your supporters to send text messages to potential donors, volunteers, event attendees, and more. Without writing a single line of code, purchasing a unique phone number, or even paying a dollar out pocket, you can create a free Givebutter account and start sending Text Message Invites in a matter of minutes. As with all Givebutter features, Text Message Invites are completely free.

Here's how easy it is to get started:

  1. After creating a Fundraise or Events campaign in your Givebutter Dashboard, visit your campaign page and click "Share" the top
  2. Enter any phone number and optionally add their First/Last Name for added personalization and an Email Address to also send a message to their email address
  3. Your invite will appear below – you will have the ability to track whether they have converted and cancel the automated reminders we send
  4. Supporters will receive a personalized text with their name and your trackable donation link, right to their phone! Did we mention this works with Venmo?

Automated reminders are sent twice after the initial text, three days apart. Reminders are canceled if the supporter "converts" by using the same email/phone number in their transaction details, or by clicking the link we generate and completing the transaction form there.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
