A short code is a 5-digit number used to send and receive text messages just like a regular phone number, only shorter.
Our Text-to-Donate technology uses the short code 44321 (only on U.S. phone carriers).
Text-to-Donate and use of our Short Code are free for nonprofits, like the rest of Give Lively's fundraising technology. The Short Code comes at a significant cost, but our philanthropist founders are generously covering the whole thing.
