How does Text Giving work?

Donations made simple

Text Giving enables your supporters to donate on a one-off or monthly basis by sending a text message. Donations will then be added to their phone bill or deducted from their phone credit.

  • Unlimited Keywords

  • Custom Messages

  • Gift Aid

  • Regular Donations


Unlimited potential with keywords

A keyword is the word a supporter texts in order to make a donation. You choose your own keywords and can create as many as you like - for free.


Customise messages to fit with your brand

Edit the messages your supporters receive, so they recognise your brand and truly get that warm, fuzzy feeling of making a donation.


Collect Gift Aid at no charge

We can collect Gift Aid information on your behalf. Simply download the data and add to your claim to HMRC. 100% of Gift Aid funds will be paid to you directly by HMRC.


Steward supporters to become regular donors

Boost your income by over 30% with our Conversion Message. This is an optional add-on message asking supporters to make a regular donation.

Truly contactless donations

The importance of contactless donations is growing every year. Put your supporters at ease by allowing them to donate without any physical contact.


Quick set up, simple reporting

Set up a campaign in minutes, then track your donations in real time through our comprehensive reporting dashboard.


"Adding a text option to the donation page was a quick and simple way of offering more choice, and a new group of supporters their preferred way to give."

“Text to give is a simple, quick way for donors to give and this is what they increasingly want. They don’t want to spend an age filling in forms.”

“This is a different type of fundraising to what we usually do. We were amazed by the generosity of those watching our work online, with so many donating via text.”

“We had different generations in the same room, all making donations by text. We were surprised by the number of people who chose the higher donation amount.”

“We made sure that text to donate was on everything. We wanted to make it as simple as possible for people to donate.”
