Text Messaging For Nonprofit Organizations

SMS For Nonprofit Organizations

In order to have a successful nonprofit organization, it is essential that you have a broad reach when communicating with your members. Whether you’re a political group, religious organization, or charity, using texting for your nonprofit communications can help you build and nurture your network. Use texting to alert members of important issues, boost attendance at events, and fundraise.

How Trumpia Can Be Used for Nonprofits

  • Make it Easy for Members to Join

    With Trumpia, you can set up a mobile keyword to capture even more than just a phone number: you can ask questions about the type of information they’re interested in and automatically capture their responses. You can then use this information to sort your members into distinct groups so they only receive messages they’re interested in.

    Keep Members Informed

    Keep your members in the loop by updating them through text messaging for nonprofits to ensure important updates are seen. With Trumpia, you can even include links that lead to more information or picture and videos in your text message too. Then, track who clicks the link and who doesn’t, so you can automatically send follow ups.

  • Boost Event Attendance

    Drum up excitement and boost attendance for events using text messages, rather than emails that go straight to the spam folder. You can also schedule alerts to go out at a specific time/date. Better yet, if you already use a scheduling software like Calendly or Google Calendar, you can even integrate Trumpia with them so they do things like automatically send a reminder for the event as the date comes up in that software.

    Coordinate Staff and Volunteers

    Make sure everyone is up-to-speed about what needs to be done with weekly check ins and assignments. Particularly with volunteers during an event, texting offers a great way to coordinate them as needs for resources change.

  • Maximize Your Donations With SMS

    Increasing donations is a crucial part of enabling nonprofits to continue to bring awareness to their cause. Trumpia allows your nonprofit to set up a unique mobile keyword so members can easily donate. When texted, you can ask how much they would like to pledge, or even send them a link to your donation webpage.

    And with a sophisticated system like Trumpia, you can save yourself time by implementing our automated system to run certain functions for you. So if the member doesn’t click the link within a week, you can do things like automatically send a reminder, or automatically send more information about the projects their donations would help fund.

Automated Use Case Templates for Nonprofits

Trumpia’s Workbench comes with prebuilt workflows specifically designed to help nonprofits reach their goals. These include campaigns that our other nonprofit customers have successfully used to streamline operations and better serve their causes.

  • Send a Link to Obtain Signatures

    Have supporters text in a keyword and Trumpia can automatically forward them to your online petition pages, potentially reaching thousands of people with just a keyword.

    Volunteering Surveys

    This workflow allows you to ask questions to find out what causes your supporters are most passionate about and gauge their interest in volunteering.

  • Text-to-Donate

    Set up a special donation mobile keyword. When texted, our system will automatically send a message with an embedded link that leads to your donation page. Then, if they don’t click that link, you can have a reminder automatically sent a few days later.

What Nonprofits Are Saying About Trumpia

  • Special Spectators

    “The transformation of the children on game day is amazing. When they arrive, they are maybe a little shy, but over the course of the day, you see them smiling and laughing, maybe for the first time since their diagnosis. And the reverse is true as well – kids will see parents smile for the first time in months.”

    - Blake Rockwell, Founder of Special Spectators

  • 100,000 OPPORTUNITIES Initiative

    “Trumpia was very effective. We surveyed the kids, and 90% of them identified cell phones as the primary way they wanted to be contacted. And of that 90%, 90% of them opted in for our texting program.”

    - Daniel Yao, 100,000 Opportunities Initiative
