Advantages of SMS for Non-Profits

Your recipients don’t answer their phones, and your non-profit’s email campaigns aren’t gaining any traction. It’s time to reach people where they’re most likely to respond—in their text message inbox. Personalized text messages let you connect with individual donors during an end-of-year fundraising campaign or when you’re trying to recruit volunteers. With SMS, you can also send personalized messages thanking people for their support.

Recruit and Manage Volunteers

Recruit and Manage Volunteers

If volunteers drive your non-profit, you need an efficient way to recruit, schedule and manage them. With SMS, you can send short and sweet messages to volunteers to fill shifts. Ask them to reply directly or click on a link to head to your organization's scheduling system. Once volunteers have booked shifts, use SMS to send them reminders and ask them to confirm attendance.

A big-name donor has just agreed to match all contributions up to $1 million. Now, it's up to you to get your donors to make those donations so you can get the match. SMS helps create urgency and makes it easy for repeat or first-time donors to pledge money toward your campaign. Let donors know your campaign goals so they are more likely to respond to your messages.

Benefits of using

Connection Icon SMS for Nonprofits

Donor and volunteer communications are just two ways that SMS solutions benefit non-profits. Red Oxygen’s SMS solutions can help your non-profit in many other ways:

  • Keep Staff Up to Date Keep your staff current on company news by sending SMS reminders and updates. For example, you might send a text reminding your team about an upcoming all-hands meeting or letting them know if the office is closed due to inclement weather.
  • Send out Event Reminders Does your organization have a gala or other event coming up? Send out reminders through SMS. If it’s not too late to RSVP, include a link people can click to register. If the RSVP date has passed, include a link so people can donate.
  • Increase Donations If a donor has regularly contributed $100 per month, consider sending them an SMS asking for slightly more, such as $125. You can also use SMS to encourage donors to sign up for automated monthly donations, which lowers your administrative costs.
  • Connect With Clients SMS makes it easy to keep up with your clients and the communities your non-profit serves. You can send personalized messages checking in on past clients or send messages that help them connect to resources. You can also use SMS to schedule client appointments or send them appointment reminders.
