Donor Setup Process

"Text any amount to 84321 to give" - Standard message & data rates may apply.

If a donor texts $5 and they've never set up Text-to-Give, they'll be asked to set up a payment method. From that point forward, giving will be as simple as sending a text. You'll be offered 2 options for how to give -- either by linking directly to your bank account, or by linking to your credit/debit card. If you choose the option of linking to your bank account directly, GraceLife Church will incur no card processing fees. ALL text-to-give options are processed via Stripe, which is a highly secure online system. 

  1. Send an amount (example: $5 or $1.00) to the short code 84321. This is a shared shortcode used by other churches in your area. 
  2. If your phone number isn't set up for text-to-give yet, a setup link will be sent back. Tap the setup link to be guided to the next step.
  3. Select your church. A list of churches in the area will be suggested. If your phone number is recognized by Planning Center Giving, the appropriate church will be listed as a "Suggested" organization. Choose "GraceLife Church" (you'll see our logo) as your church.
  4. Enter your email address and, if prompted, your name.
  5. Enter the payment method you'd like to use for text-to-give. If you're already a donor and you've added a payment method before (say, a bank account for ACH or a credit card) then you can optionally log in to access your saved payment methods. 
  6. Complete your initial setup donation. Donations will go to the General Fund. Within seconds you should receive an email receipt for your donation.
