Your Christmas Fundraising Appeal and Text Giving

Yep – it’s that time of year again. As summer becomes a distant memory and the nights continue to become darker and cosier, it can only mean one thing – the long old road to launching your Christmas fundraising appeal starts here!

So, whether you’re more excited about Christmas than Buddy the Elf catching a glimpse of Santa Claus at the store – or, you’re a bit more of Scrooge when it comes to discussing anything festive pre-December 1st – one thing’s for sure:

For our sector, Christmas appeal planning season starts now.

But no matter where you’re at with your planning – whether you’re just starting, or ready to go – our brand-new guide “How to: Easily add Text Giving to your Christmas Appeal today is here to help you to do just that.


We can add a keyword right now, you say?

Yes, really! Even if your Christmas campaign was finalised long ago (we see you, early planners!), it’s not too late to add in a text keyword to your promotional material.

Since a new campaign can be set up in a matter of minutes from our dashboard, you could create your new keyword now, and use this as part of your Christmas appeal fundraising toolkit in a range of places – from events, to social media (our Guide offers more detailed advice).

Of course, if you’re still in the planning stages then it’s the perfect time to set up a text keyword as part of your campaign. Be sure to pop it in any printed collateral you might be sending out to supporters!

Finally – not signed up to use our service? No problem. You can sign up here, and even create your first text keyword in the process, to get started immediately.
