FAQs/Donating/How to donate

Donate via text or the smartphone app

posted this on October 23, 2012 14:35

If you're in the UK, you can make a donation with a simple text message. To make a text donation, you'll need to know the six digit code of the charity or the fundraiser you want to support.  You then text the six digit code and the amount you'd like to donate (£1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10) to 70070.

For example, if the code you'd like to donate to was TEST80 and you wanted to donate £10, text TEST80 £10 to the phone number 70070.


The cost of donating by text

JustTextGiving is a free service. There is no cost to you for sending the text message and your free allowance/bundle will not be affected - the only charge will be the donation itself. What's more, 100% of your text donation (including Gift Aid) will be sent to the charity.

Being charged for a text donation

The amount you're donating will be added to your mobile phone bill or deducted from your pay as you go credit.
