Text Giving

Give by Text – we also offer giving your offerings and donations by text! In much less time than it takes to write a check and address an envelope, you can now make your contribution to St. James with a quick text message.  To get started, text your donation with the dollar sign (example: $5) to 610-546-2102.  You’ll receive a registration link.  Click the link and enter your contact and payment information.  Then click “Process”.  You’ll receive a verification by text and a receipt by email.  For future giving, simply send a text with the amount you wish to give to Current (default fund) and it will process automatically.  Use text codes to give to other funds.


In order to donate to various funds, use the following text codes:
