Anyone can do it!
SMS Texting is inexpensive to add to your fundraising programs. At only $0.01 per credit, you can start texting your donors instantly with up to 120 characters including emojis and hyperlinks. Plans start as low as $10 per month and credits roll over.
Easily search, organize and manage donors and their contact history within one system. With separate "Manager" and "Dialer" accounts, callers can call off a given list and disposition donors while manager accounts can view calling reports and history.
Send email blasts, schedule drip e-mails, or send ‘em on-the-fly to supplement your fundraising dialer efforts, and track results from coordinated campaigns. You’ll know when an email is opened, so you can call right away. Create and save templates, and include pictures and video. Email Marketing is included with our 3-line and 4-line dialers; it costs $10/month with 1-line dialers.
