How do I give via my mobile phone?
Once you have created a Mogiv account it's easy to enable your mobile phone for giving. From your Giver Dashboard simply click on Settings and then follow the steps under "Manage Contact Options" to enable your Mobile Phone. Once your mobile phone is enabled you will be able to give to Denver First Church anytime simply by sending a text message.
To initiate a gift to DFC from your phone, simply send a text message with the amount you'd like to donate to DFC’s general giving address - email@example.com. As an example, to send $20 to Denver First Church’s general fund you would text: "20" to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Seriously. It's that simple. We'll send you a confirmation text to make sure we got your request right. If we did, you'll text back a "Y" and your donation will be on its way.
To enable email giving, follow all of the steps above, but enter in your authorized email address instead of your mobile phone number. When sending an email gift, put the gift amount (ex. “20”) in the subject line and send the email to email@example.com.
Can I really send a text message to an email address? Yes you can. The majority of US mobile carriers support text-to-email messaging. To send a text message to an email, simply substitute an email address for the usual phone number in the "To:" space. The best way to do it is to create a “DFC” contact in your phone with the email address (ex. firstname.lastname@example.org). Then, simply send a text message to that contact and it’ll come straight to us!
What is GivUp?
This is pretty cool - a whole new way to be intentional & sacrificial in your giving!!
Central to the Mogiv system is the GivUp functionality. GivUp allows Donors to "Give Up" a discretionary purchase and instantly redirect the resources to the mission and vision of Denver First Church thereby "Giving Up" those funds to a greater cause.
As a donor, you initiate a GivUp gift just like any other gift on the Mogiv system... with one addition: simply add the name of the item you are giving up to the beginning of your donation request text or email.
For example: Say that you want to "GivUp" a night out at a restaurant and you value that dinner at $20. To GivUp the $20 to DFC, you would text/email: "Dinner 20" email@example.com. The Mogiv system will initiate a gift of $20 and also record the item you gave in your account, allowing you to track both.
How do I get a receipt for my donation? The Mogiv System will email you a receipt for each gift that you make. Receipts and giving reports can also be printed from the dashboard at any time. All donations to Denver First Church of the Nazarene are tax deductible.
Can I really give any amount? The Mogiv System allows you to make donations of $1.00 or more.
How much does it cost donors to use the Mogiv system? The Mogiv system is free to use for givers. There is no cost to have a Mogiv account and no cost or fee to you in making an online or mobile phone donation.
Who do I talk to if I have problems using the system?
The Business Office of Denver First Church is always available to help with any questions we can. For questions, technical issues, or to void any unintended payments, you can contact Mogiv Support 24/7 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
