by Audrey Tétreault, Advisor, Mobile Giving Foundation Canada (MGFC)
As a Founding Partner of GivingTuesday Canada, Mobile Giving Foundation Canada (MGFC) is giving back to the charitable sector by waiving text-to-donate campaign fees for the months of November and December. This offer specifically applies to new campaign activations that occur between November 1st to 29th, 2016.
This offer is limited to one free campaign per charity. A campaign may consist of one keyword, any or all donation amounts, either French or English or bilingual messaging, a customizable follow-up message, a customizable mobile form to collect donor information, and the short code number 20222.
For charities new to MGFC, the standard one-time application fee of $350 applies. For those that have registered in the past, but do not currently have an active campaign, a $100 registration fee applies for the renewal of the account. The charity’s registration with MGFC is confirmed through a countersigned agreement which ensures transparency of practices and compliance with best practices, and assures MGFC’s accountability when conducting its activities for the benefit of each charity registered, notably: consolidation, reconciliation, and remittance of all funds donated across all participating wireless service providers.
