Text Giving

Give Via Text

We want our members to contribute when and how they want. We offer several electronic giving options, including Give by Text, as convenient alternatives to checks or cash

How to use Text Giving

Using text giving is fast, convenient, and secure. Your gift can be one-time or recurring. Here's how to use it:

  1. Text any amount to 248-845-1440 (specific to Clarkston UMC).
  2. Follow the link to complete a one-time registration.
  3. Save the number for all future contributions.

How do I know when my donations are processed?

You will receive an immediate confirmation via text that the donation has been received. After a text donation has been processed, it appears on your credit card statement.

Can I set up recurring donations via text?

Yes. When entering your card information, you may choose to make it a recurring gift.

Are text donations ever charged to my monthly phone bill?

No. Donations are processed using the payment method specified in the member’s online profile. Phone carriers handle only the text message, never any financial information.

Will text donations be included in my contribution statement?

Yes. Text contributions will be posted to your giving records just like any other gift (e.g., cash, checks, online).
