  • If you wish to give to general giving all you have to do is text your dollar amount (ex: $5) to 84321 and you are done.
  • If you wish to give to a specific GUMC Fund you will need to add the fund or the fund’s shortcut after the dollar amount
    • By default, Text-to-Give donations will go to General Giving unless another fund is specified. A donor can indicate a specific fund by appending the fund name or fund shortcut after the donation amount. (For example: “$5 building”)
    • Donors can also split donations between funds in a single text by listing the amounts and fund names for each fund. (For example: “$5 missions $6 building”)

      • general-giving (general)
