Using a texting service for nonprofits has proven to be one of the most effective ways to motivate and communicate with volunteers, supporters, and beneficiaries. Since texting has an open rate close to 99%, many non-profit organizations use mass texting in their daily operations.

As long as you're reaching out to people with the information they want, and you have consent to message them - a mass text messaging service can be a very powerful communication tool for delivering reminders, notifications, and alerts.

While mass text messaging is by no means illegal, it is heavily restricted. The U.S. government has a long history of regulation, protecting consumer privacy concerning telemarketing and robocalls, and this also extends to text messaging. The most critical piece of legislation narrowing the scope of acceptable telemarketing practices came with the TCPA of 1991, which amended the original Communications Act of 1934.

With a spam rate of less than 3% and an open rate close to 99%, it’s not surprising that non-profits use mass text messaging extensively.

What Is a Mass Texting System?

It’s a system that allows you to send a text message to a large audience. You can upload a list of all your donors, attendees, volunteers, staff members or followers and directly send them a message all at once.

By eliminating the tedious process of individually forwarding text messages, time and money can be saved because you won't need to hire a person to do this job.

What Can I Use a Mass Messaging Service For?

Texting services can be used to make last-minute announcements, send emergency notifications, update staff members about the latest happenings, share helpful resources, and even manage events. The opportunities are endless!

What Kind of Non-profits Can Use a Mass Texting System?

There’s no limit. It’s a good option for any business that deals with a large number of people and want to send out a mass message. We have worked with several non-profits, such as The Red Cross and The BBB. At Text-Em-All, we do not allow text message marketing, so if you plan to send these types of messages, you'll need to look for another solution.

An Example of How a Mass Texting System Makes Life Easier

Let’s say you run a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) and need to inform donors about an event to be held next week. There are about 1,000 people on your list. Sending a message to all of them individually can be a lot of work and the likelihood of errors arising is high.

An easier way to send the event notification is to use a mass messaging service. The user creates a contact list with all the phone numbers and uploads it to the system. They then create and personalize the message and set up a specific time for it to be sent to all the recipients at once.

Plus, you can use this messaging tool to 1-on-1 communicate with the recipients. For example, you can ask the recipient to respond with a “Y” if they intend to attend the event. The responses can help you calculate how many people will attend the event so that you can plan accordingly. Plus, you can even configure the system to send an automatic text reminder to the attendees a day before the event.
