Faithworks

Choosing Regular Text Giving

Bournemouth-based charity Faithworks support a wealth of practical projects in their local area – including food banks, debt advice, recovery, and homelessness projects.

To keep all of their vital services running smoothly, Faithworks opted to expand their regular donation options by adding Regular Text Giving into the mix.

Regular Text Giving is a quick and simple way for a supporter to set up a monthly gift  – one which takes a couple of seconds to set up, before automatically being added onto their phone bill each month.

Faithworks chose to set up unique keywords for each of their projects, which allowed them to monitor the success of each campaign through our tracking and live reporting tools.

Ruth Argles explains the success Faithworks has seen with Regular Text Giving

Facing the Pandemic

At the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, Faithworks noted that the number of donors opting to use Regular Text Giving was actually increasing.

Donors were finding it an easy way to show their commitment to the charity during a tough time – with Faithworks able to monitor these donations through the Regular Donations area of the dashboard.

“I was really excited to discover Donr Text Giving as it seemed like a really simple, easy way for people to donate to our projects.” – Ruth Argles, Communications Lead

When the text CTA was promoted in the Annual Review of one Faithworks’ food banks last year, the response was fantastic – and this project now receives £75 a month (plus Gift Aid) from regular text donors, amounting to over £1k each year.

Faithworks has successfully used Text Giving to attract regular donations, helping to provide a sustainable source of income to the charity. If you’d like to chat to our team about setting up a regular text campaign, you can get in touch at hello@donr.com.
