Too many worthy causes struggle to capture and keep people's attention, so we created an Ai-empowered, human-centered mobile messaging platform to help them forge unbreakable relationships with donors and volunteers.

Use this free checklist to work through critical steps, systems, and processes as you evaluate and deploy a text messaging solution to drive donor engagement.

“The Rally team is knowledgeable, helpful, and very responsive. Their platform provides resources as if they were a large corporation, while their service team backs you up like a small, local business focused on customer service... The resources they provide are extremely valuable to our non-profit.”

A Checklist

“The Text-2-Donate process was super smooth, and some of our largest donations of the night came thru via the platform! It gave us the relevant edge we needed to win over a mature crowd as well as engage the millennials in the audience."


Rachael P.

“…the ease in setting up the account with the team at Rally Corp was fantastic. I had many questions and they spent a lot of time with me to ensure I felt comfortable with my next steps.”

Queen of the Valley Medical Center

Andrew A.

“Rally has made an incredible impact in our communication techniques and our bottom line in a short period of time. Their technology and customer service is second to none.”

AARE/Mission Finder

Hannah K.

“Rally has been a wonderful tool for reaching out to our community regarding upcoming events and other important pieces of news, as well as providing a streamlined method for giving via text. Rally support is incredibly responsive and helpful. They quickly got us up and running and have answered our dozens of questions throughout implementation and beyond.”

Lake Forest Academy

Jenny E.

“We were new to text-to-donate platforms, but Rally Corp walked us through every step of the process and made it really easy to get started. Will went out of his way to make sure we felt comfortable with the setup and responded to endless questions with good cheer and blazing speed. If we didn’t have the ease for people to donate by text, we never would have raised the amount we did to feed hungry children. Well worth the investment, and we plan on using Rally Corp for future campaigns.”

Rockingham County Arts Council

Jeanne F.

“The Rally team is knowledgeable, helpful, and very responsive. Their platform provides resources as if they were a large corporation, while their service team backs you up like a small, local business focused on customer service. Their transparency is appreciated as well – if they don’t know an answer, or cannot fulfill a request, they have no problem telling you so right away. And the resources they do provide are extremely valuable to our small non-profit.”
