Snowball, which was formerly known as @Pay, is a mobile fundraising option that specializes in text-to-give software. In addition to offering mobile giving, Snowball can also assist in email donation buttons, fundraising thermometers so you and your donators know where you stand, as well as branded online and mobile donation pages. 

This makes Snowball one of the top mobile giving platforms for nonprofits who are looking to raise money for a good cause but need some assistance in reaching their goals. The platform also has PCI-compliant donation processing and integration capabilities. 


MyPledger was developed in mind for college and university fundraising. So, if you fall into that category, this mobile pledging platform is definitely worth checking out. 

However, the platform can still be used by nonprofits and churches as well. Like other solutions of its kind, MyPleder allows donors to pledge and give straight from their phones — regardless of what type of phone they have or their service provider. 


Qgiv has a main online fundraising solution that allows people to donate with just a few simple clicks. Qgiv also works with a lot of nonprofits, making them a great resource for those who need help getting their word out on the cause they are supporting. 


Another text-to-give software that was designed specifically with nonprofit needs in mind, OneCause is a great option for those who are looking to increase their proceeds at their respective fundraising events. 

One Cause works best for nonprofits that hold events regularly. They offer a larger suite of fundraising software, which includes mobile bidding (which is an auction-style form of mobile giving), as well as an event planning software that supports an unlimited number of events each year. 

Double the Donation 

Double the Donation is not like the other text to give solutions that have been listed so far. Instead, this platform can work in tandem with your text to give fundraising campaign. 

Double the Donation offers nonprofits the option between a website branded to their organization or a customizable plugin for their current site that offers donors the ability to research their employer’s matching gifts policies. 

So, if you’re looking to take advantage of corporate philanthropy to help reach your nonprofit’s goals, Double the Donation can help you get there. 


Particularly for smaller nonprofits, Pledgeling offers a great way to directly engage and communicate with your supporters while accepting donations.

You’ll be able to send both photo and video media with your text donation appeals, as well as the ability to receive inbound messages for immediate feedback, and customized landing pages and donation widgets.

Other Members Engagement Solutions For Your Church

Mobile giving solutions are an effective tool for increasing your donations, but it’s also important that you have solutions in place for increasing your church engagement as well.

With ReachNow and ConnectNow, you can do just that. 


ReachNow is one of the most effective solutions out there when it comes to interacting with your congregation members. We understand that your role in running the church is a busy one, and that’s why with ReachNow, you can draft and send messages directly to your church members’ phones. 

So, whether you want to send mission trip updates, calls for volunteers, donation appeals, daily or weekly devotional messages, updates on weather delays, and much more, ReachNow is the church engagement solution for you. 

No more frantically sending emails at the last minute. Using ReachNow will allow you to be consistent with your messages, sending them on-time, every time.


ConnectNow makes it easy for new church members to get acquainted with your church, as well as for you to get acquainted with them. 

ConnectNow allows you to receive the necessary information to start a relationship with new church members, including:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Validated Cell Phone Number

If you sign up to be a part of our GiveNow solutions, you’ll automatically receive ConnectNow.

This means that you’ll not only be able to easily welcome potential new members into your church — but you’ll also be able to increase your church donations by allowing your congregation to easily tithe from their smartphones.
