When MOCA first began, the main way to donate to our organization was with cash or check. Fast-forward 14 years, and how things have changed.
These days, though we still get many cash, check or credit card donations, many of our supporters opt for the ease of online donations. This month, we’re excited to announce that we’re making it easier than ever to give to MOCA, just by sending a simple text.
You can now text MOCA to 20222 to donate $10 to MOCA – directly supporting our programming, research, education and support. Available on major cell phone carriers, this tax deductible donation will be charged to the users’ cell phone bill.
We’re excited about the fact that this service can make it simple to donate to MOCA in a few easy steps. For many, this may be their first-ever donation to MOCA! But just as importantly, we’re excited about how it can spur on a new audience to give, learn about our organization and, hopefully, get even more involved.
We plan to promote our texting keyword at popular public events that draw in people who may not yet be familiar with MOCA; events like the Athleta Diva Dash, parades and Tie it Teal Night with the Twins. Now these event participants can easily support our cause at the touch of a screen.
A lot has changed since a group of ovarian cancer survivors founded this organization 14 years ago. We have adopted new methods enabling more people to give. But we are steadfast in our mission of supporting women and families, funding research, and providing education about ovarian cancer. Thank you for your continued support as we change and grow.
