Text to Give

Text the amount you wish to donate to

We are excited to offer our new Text to Give option, designed to provide members another convenient way to give their tithes and offerings.

Get Started:

Enter your 10-digit Give+ Text number (828.548.1786) and the amount you wish donate, then press send.


You will receive a registration link. Click the link and enter your contact and payment information. Tap “Process.”


After registration is complete, you will receive a verification text as well as a receipt via email.


For future giving, simply send a text to 828.548.1786 with the amount you wish to give, and it will process automatically. You can save the number in your device for easy future access right from your Contacts.

How do members give by text message?
After members register, they will receive instructions on how to send donations by text message. Text donations are sent to a 10-digit number where they are received and processed by Vanco. Your organization is provided with a dedicated 10-digit number. (see above)

How do members know when their donations are processed?
Members receive immediate confirmation via text that their donation was received. After a text donation has been processed, it appears on the member’s credit card statement.

How quickly are text donations deposited?
Text donations are electronically deposited into the church bank account within 2 to 4 business days for credit and debit card transactions.

Are all contributions set at a fixed dollar amount?
No. The member chooses the amount of the donation.

Are members assessed any special fees?
No, but normal text messaging fees from their cell phone carriers may apply.

Are text donations ever charged to a member’s mobile 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.

What payment methods are available for giving by text?
Vanco Give+ Text supports donations via credit and debit cards.

Can members set up recurring donations by text?
Yes. Donors can text “Repeat” after they’ve made a donation to make it recurring. They can also text “Schedule” to set up a recurring donation.
