Give to First Pres using Text Giving

Posted by Lindy Keffer on with 3 Comments

Use text giving to fulfill your giving commitment or make a spontaneous contribution. Text a dollar amount to 719-297-2232. (Example: Your message might say "$25")

The first time you give this way, you'll be asked to visit a secure site and enter your credit or debit card information. To maximize your gift, use a debit card for lower processing fees.

Registration is quick—less than 2 minutes if your card is already stored in your device. Once your gift has processed, you'll receive a confirmation text. It's that simple!

 Helpful Hints for Giving by Text

1) Texts with only a dollar amount will be placed into the general budget ("Budget Gifts" on your statement). 

2) You can designate your contribution for any of the following purposes by adding the fund names below to your giving amount: (Example: "$25 Pledge Giving")

  • Pledge Giving
  • Deacons
  • Undesignated Missions
  • Disaster Relief
  • Flower Fund
  • Get Set
  • Worship Center

3) If you need to be reminded of these fund names, text "Funds" to the number above

4) If you need instructions on text giving, text "Help" to the number above. 

5) To clear your payment information from text giving, text "Reset" to the number above. 

Thank you in advance for your generosity!

Hi Russell, Go to the Online Giving login at http://www.shelbygiving.com/dl/?uid=firs219188 and sign in, or choose "Quick Give" if you don't want to create a login. Enter the amount you'd like to give and choose "Flower Fund" in the dropdown menu right next to the amount.

If this doesn't answer your question, please don't hesitate to call Michelle Adams-Fooshee in the business office at 884-6165, and she will be glad to help you!
