Text to Give

You can make your offering to Walton just by sending a text.

How to give:

Want to give to the General Fund?
Just text a dollar amount to 84321, e.g. “$25”. The General Fund is our main fund and does not need to be specified in your text.

Want to give to a different fund?
Text a dollar amount followed by the fund you want to donate to, e.g. “$25 mission” donates $25 to Mission & Service Fund.

You can also specify “building”, “foodbank” or “benevolent”. For a full list of possible fund keywords click here.

Want to give to several funds at once?
Text the dollar amounts followed by the fund names as one continuous text message,
e.g. “$10 general $5 mission $5 building”
Please always include the “$” signs to ensure your donation is correctly allocated.

Made a mistake on your text?
Just text REFUND to 84321 and the donation will be refunded.
