How do I set up a 'Giving Page' Text Giving campaign?

This allows you to create a Text Giving campaign to promote alongside your pre-existing Giving Page.

Set up a new campaign via:

Donr Dashboard > Menu to left side of screen > Text Giving > Create new > Select ‘Text linked to a Giving Page’ from the four options

Choose a name for your campaign to remind yourself of how you used the campaign. For example, it might be ‘Summer Party 2021’ or ‘General Website Donation Option.’ Enter the name for your campaign in the ‘Campaign name’ field.

Choose a keyword for your campaign, type it into the ‘Keyword’ field and click ‘Check availability’ to review which shortcode phone numbers your chosen keyword is available on. Open the drop-down menu and review the list of shortcodes; if there are none available (or the keyword is not available on the shortcode you’d like to use), you’ll need to choose a new keyword. Otherwise, select an available shortcode.

Click ‘Next’ to move onto the next stage of campaign creation.

This screen collects details about your campaign. 

Give an estimated live date in the ‘when is your campaign going live?’ field and an estimated end date in the ‘when is your expected closing date?’ field. Please note – these are only for guidance purposes: your campaign will be active and able to take donations from the end of the campaign creation process, and will continue taking donations until you use the ‘End campaign now’ button in the Configure menu, after you’ve completed set-up.

If your campaign has no set end date, check the ‘My campaign is on-going’ box.

Give an estimation of how much you’re trying to raise by setting the ‘amount’ field.

When you click ‘Next,’ your campaign will be active and able to take donations.

Use the ‘Edit your campaign’ button to edit certain details of your campaign, such as customising messaging, or click ‘Return to campaigns’ to go back to the Text Giving overview screen.

You can find sample promotional wording to help you promote your campaign in the Configure section:
