"Our fundraising increased by more than seven times with Handbid.

When we used paper bid sheets our auction raised $3,000. When we started using Handbid, our auction raised over $23,000."

Here’s how Text2Give
works in Handbid

number 1

Create a keyword. The keyword can be virtually anything

number 2

Text your donors and advise them to text back with the keyword.

number 3

When donors text the keyword, they receive a response directing them to your donation page, event registration page, or auction

Keep donors engaged throughout the year

One of the best ways to use Text2Give is for driving donations between your live events. You can also use it to reach donors during peak giving times, such as the holidays, or to boost revenue during slower times of year.

Take advantage of interactive keyword responses to engage donors in new ways! Use Text2Give to boost event registrations, direct donors to a virtual auction, or sell more merchandise.

Since you can text any kind of link using Text2Give, there really are no limits.
