Automatic Card Updater

GiveCentral is one of the only donation platforms to offer an automatic updater as and when cards expire. This has increased monthly giving by 4%, due to a decrease in failed and lapsed transactions.

In today’s fundraising world, the ability to give on a mobile device is paramount. GiveCentral offers:

  • Responsive design – All donor facing pages are responsive and fit to the user’s phone or tablet appropriately (including custom pages).
  • Mobile app – We have an admin and a donor facing app to manage gifts.

  • Text-to-Give – We offer the ability to give using text message, and the data filters to the donors GiveCentral record, not a secondary system.

Text Messaging

To better enable your organization to receive donations online, GiveCentral allows for three types of text messaging/text-to-give :


-Allows the donors to text their contact information (first name, last name, email address) to a phone number designated for that location. This information is automatically sent to your GiveCentral database to build your contact list.


-Donors can make donations to their Appeal through texting – these donations can be in response from an ask from the parish or Diocese, or the donor can self-select to text a donation.

-Unlike other text-to-give programs where the donation is charged to the donor’s phone bill, the money is attributed to their GiveCentral account, and visible through all reporting automatically.

-Text Announcements

-This gives the ability for the Diocese to message all donors en masse. (Meant for use for announcements such as a Christmas Thank you, or a reminder of the school carnival).

System Functionality

Administrators have the ability to set frequencies for each contribution :

  • Reporting is done in real-time.
  • Location administrators can request reports to be sent to the proper location staff member on a scheduled basis (i.e. the transaction report to the finance manager monthly).
