(Relay For Life, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, Real Men Wear Pink, Golf, Gala, Endurance and Running Events, and Active & Community Events)
SMS Texting (sending outgoing text messages to your event Participants) is available for ALL of your revenue streams – Relay For Life, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, Real Men Wear Pink, Golf, Gala, endurance and Running Events, and Active & Community Events. SMS Texting can be set up for ACS Staff, and/or for trusted Volunteers. Each event is assigned a unique Textword, and Participants can opt into receiving SMS Text Messages by sending that Textword to the number 69922. We have an enterprise-level contract with SlickText (our SMS Texting vendor), so there’s no charge for your events to use this service. (We use your Society Key Codes simply as unique identifiers for your events.)
Use this link to setup an event with a new Textword, or to request Staff and/or Volunteer access to an existing Textword.
Many ACS Fundraising Events are already setup to use SMS Texting, but many others are not. If you're unsure about the SMS Texting status of one or more of your events, or you just have more questions about SMS Texting in general, use this link to make that request.
