YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley Supports Young Women with Give by Cell's Mobile Fundraising

San Francisco, February 26, 2013 - YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley in California has partnered with Give by Cell to implement its Mobile Give fundraising service for YWCA's "Just For Girls" program.

The "Just For Girls" program works to ensure that young women graduate from high school, continue their education, and develop career plans while promoting self esteem and healthy attitudes. YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley has also teamed up with actress and spokesperson LisaRaye McCoy, for a PSA to discuss the organization's mission and how to donate via mobile.

"Texting to donate is an easy way to make a difference," said Karen Draine, YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley Program Manager. "Our supporters find that picking up their phone and texting a one-time donation is much easier than the old fashion way of writing a check and putting it in the mail. Because we have supporters of various ages, we had to make sure that this would be easy for them to use and understand and Give by Cell had the easiest platform to understand.“

Supporters can donate $10, with the charge applied to their mobile phone bill, by texting "YWCAPFV" to 20222*. For more information about Mobile Give, please click here.

Additional services available include live screencasting, text alerts, audio information hotlines, QR codes and custom mobile websites. Give by Cell also offers two additional mobile fundraising platforms, Mobile Donate and Mobile Pledge, both of which can be used in conjunction with Mobile Give.
