Our eGiving solution, Abundant, allows parishioners and guests to give money to your diocese or parishes through texting.
The diocese and each parish will create a unique, dedicated keyword. Donors text this keyword and the dollar amount they'd like to give.
They can use debit cards, credit cards, or ACH payments to complete their gift. It takes first-time donors about 2 minutes to set up their payment method, which is saved for future text gifts. Your diocese or the parish name displays in the confirmation text, payment form, and on the donor's receipt.
The money is deposited in the connected bank account in 3 to 5 business days. Within PDS, text gifts are processed just like online contributions, and they display in your online import and reports.
Donors text the diocese or parish keyword, along with the dollar amount, to 73256. The first time someone donates, they'll see a link to complete their gift.
Once you set up text giving, let parishioners know about it in the Sunday bulletin, on social media, or on the screen before mass.
You can also set up activities in PDS that donors can select from. For example, donors can give toward your building fund.
Anyone who has the diocese or parish keyword can donate money. They don't have to be members. If they can text, they can give!
