St. Mark's now offers a Text to Give option for giving!
If you wish to use the Text to Give option, just text the dollar amount you wish to give and use one of the appropriate keywords (see the chart on the right for options) to 30131. The order (dollar amount vs. keyword) doesn't matter.
Please note: you must include a space between your keyword and dollar amount. If you do not, the system will not recognize that you are trying to make a donation. Dollar amounts can be formatted any way:
Our system will look at the keyword to identify the church/fund and it will look at the phone number to identify the donor. If it doesn't recognize the phone number, it will ask for a name and email address. If it doesn't recognize the email address, it will create a new entry in the database for that number and email address. If it does recognize the email address the donor gives, it will add the phone number to the appropriate record in the database, and will be able to recognize the phone number from then on.
Once the donation is made, you will receive a confirmation text that the contribution was received.
