5 Real Challenges For Non-Profit Texting Campaigns

5 Real Challenges For Non-Profit Texting Campaigns
"“The big challenge for non-profits is that they don’t get the donor info from the cell companies — the non-profit just gets a check from their text donation provider 30 to 90 days after folks make the donations,” said Lucy Bernholtz, principal author of the Disrupting Philanthropy: Technology and the Future Social Sector report. “This is problematic; as knowing who the donors are and being able to keep in touch with them is as important as the donation.
