Donate by Text
Simple Steps to Donate by Text
- Text ‘Give backpac’ to 301-329-2238
- A reply will ask, “How much would you like to give?”
- Enter your donation amount (minimum of * $10 is required)
- Respond to the reply, “Would you like this gift to be recurring? Enter yes or no”
- Enter your credit/debit card and billing information, and you’re done!
* Standard text-messaging rates will apply. Additional processing fees will be applied from your final donation amount.
For a $10 donation:
(10x3.3% = .33) + .30= $.63
$10 - $.63 = 9.37 is the amount collected
A gift of $10.75 sent by text should cover the increase in the percentage deducted.
It would clear $10.095 as the gift collected.
For any questions, please call the Partnerships Unit at 301-217-5370.
