    The Mobile Giving Foundation was founded in 2007 by veterans of the wireless industry to connect nonprofit organizations with the fundraising potential of wireless communications. The Mobile Giving Foundation acts as the intermediary between the donor, the phone carrier, and the nonprofit. MGF has licensed Give by Cell as a qualified provider of mobile giving campaigns, which capture text message donations and help to reach a new generation of donors. Currently, only a handful of firms in the world have met the standards of the MGF and are therefore authorized to resell this service.
