st_20pauls-0Non-profits Organizations can utilize the EZR Mobile platform for mobile charitable giving, donating to nonprofits has never been so easy. The convenient and time effective mode of donating has proved to be very successful for many 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations.
There are many reasons why your organization should engage in mobile fundraising for your nonprofit, but there are also many prerequisites to consider before consulting a text message donation program.
First and foremost, you need to have numbers available for which to solicit donations. That’s logical, right? It’s possible that a mobile campaign is not in the cards for you quite yet if you only interact with past and potential donors via email or social media.
But how do I get phone numbers? To build up your phone number pool, consider posting a widget on your website asking consumers if they would like to be considered for mobile updates. Or, simply throw on the bachelor charm and take to the streets with a handful of pick-up lines—“Hey, I lost my number. Can I have yours?” The former might work better for you.
Once you have a foundation of numbers, it’s time to get creative. Here’s where your mobile campaign gets tricky. It’s important to engage enough that they don’t forget about you, but also important not to oversaturate. You don’t want to run the risk of being unsubscribed because of an influx of unnecessary text messages. Also consider using your mobile campaign to do more than solicit donations—you can find volunteers and inform your nonprofit community about upcoming events via mobile communication
