Text to Give

Throughout the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, Trinity Cathedral will continue to be a community that supports people in their efforts to cultivate their relationship with God and with one another.  Times of extraordinary need call for extraordinary faithfulness, and we hope you will take full advantage of the opportunities for worship, prayer, and ministry Trinity will offer in the coming months; please check our website for the latest offerings and information (trinitysc.org/coronavirus).

One very important way you can participate in the mission and ministries of the Cathedral during this challenging time is to continue supporting Trinity financially. Trinity’s Finance Office has put together a new Text to Give service that makes it very easy for you to submit your financial offerings. Whether it’s during the offertory that’s part of our virtual service at 10 am on Sundays or any time during the week you feel called to give, our goal is to make it easy for you to do so with this new service. 

Text to Give can be used to contribute to your pledge, make a one-time offering, or make a contribution to an existing fund. It’s easy: all you need to do is send a text from your phone. 

Here is how it works:

  • Simply send a text message to 73256 and include in the body of your text message the keyword trinitysc followed by a space and the dollar amount you wish to contribute (for example: trinitysc 100), and the press send. Aside from the keyword trinitysc and dollar amount, you don’t need to include any other information in the initial text message to 73256. The following images are an example of how to draft the text. Please note that it will work both with and without the dollar sign before the amount:

               

  • A follow-up reply will be texted to you with a link in the message (the images above include an example of what the reply message looks like). Click the link that was sent in the reply to you. You will be directed to a page where you confirm the amount and enter your name, address and billing details: 

  • After entering all of your information into the form, click submit. When the contribution has been submitted, you will receive a response to your text acknowledging receipt of your contribution. 

  • Please note, the first time you use Text to Give you will need to follow the steps outlined above; but the next time, all you will need to do is text 73256 with the keyword trinitysc and an amount to make a contribution. Your information will already be retained for use after the initial offering, eliminating the need to type in your name, address and billing information again. 

Your faithfulness and generosity are always greatly appreciated, but that is especially the case during this time of exceptional need.  If at any time you need assistance with Text to Give or you have other questions, please contact Ryan Headley via email (rheadley@trinitysc.org) or telephone (803.461.7302). Thank you for your support for Trinity, now and always.
