Whether you’re creating your first Text Giving campaign or your 50th, the process is exactly the same. First, log into your Donr Dashboard, then click ‘Create new campaign,’ at the top of the screen. The on-screen instructions will guide you through the rest of the process, but here’s a quick overview:

First, you’ll need to choose a Text Giving keyword and shortcode. The combination of keyword and shortcode will be unique to your charity. Then, you can decide whether or not you’d like to specify a default donation amount. Following this, you can choose whether or not to turn on a 3p per text Gift Aid information collection text (a free option is available too), then there’ll be some information on collecting marketing information via Text Giving and a couple of confirmation screens to go through.

Don’t worry if that all sounds a bit daunting though – there are handy hints along the bottom of each screen to help you on your way and, of course, you can always pop back here to the Donr Help Centre to try and find an answer to your question.

If you’d like to chat through the process with a real human, drop us an email at or give us a call on 0333 4444 777 and select option 2.
