SMS For Charities and Not For Profit Text Messaging
Not for profit (NFP) organisations and charities face unique challenges that for-profit organisations do not; as such the marketing may also differ widely. However there are some distinct similarities; budgeting mindfully being one of these similarities.
Given limited access to resources for NFPs and charities, careful consideration of budgets and return on spend can be even more critical. Not for profit SMS text messaging is a great marketing solution for charities and other organisations as it is relatively inexpensive to implement.

Integrate SMS with your NFP Software for Simply Great Results
Check out our helpful integrations that shave hours off your regular business tasks. You could get your in-house tech team to create a fully customised solution, or check out our no-code options and have your integration up and running in minutes.
Integration with Fundraising Software
Do you use fundraising software like Donately? Get the most out of it by integrating with your not for profit messaging platform.
Send text message updates for new pledges: if you receive pledge forms with pledges for credit card payments, send text messages ahead of charging the card to give donors the heads up to ensure funds are available on the card. This will reduce the number of failed transactions and improve user experience for donors, helping to encourage them to make regular recurring donations.
Automate Your Regular Processes
With so many available integrations, the sky really is the limit for processes that can be automated. Our NFP clients love the following integrations:
Integration with accounts software like Xero to automate communications like sending invoices, text message reminders for accounts receivables or automated expense claim notifications.
Scheduling communications: integrate your scheduling tool like Calendly with ClickSend to automate sending text message reminders and never miss a meeting.
Events - if you run a non-profit sports club, community radio station, entrepreneur hub, cultural association or simply organise a lot of events, simplify event coordination by integrating your event management software with ClickSend.
