Text to Give -- Accept Donations by Text

Give by text offers donors a quick and easy way to get donations in the door. Unlike other give-by-text services, donors can send any amount, not just a set dollar amount, and money is deposited into your organization's bank account. Give by text is an optional feature from Vanco Services. Donors simply enter their cell phone number, payment method and a 4-digit PIN. After the initial one-time setup, donors receive both an email and text message containing instructions for sending donations by text.

Polling

Determining your grassroots support requires that you understand voter sentiments in a fast-paced political world.  Enjoy Trail Blazer’s political software polling tools that allow you to quickly develop scripts, make calls and compile the polling data all in real time.
