JustTextGiving

In the UK, JustTextGiving enables individuals and charities to collect donations via text. Through a partnership between Just Giving, Vodafone UK and the Vodafone Foundation the service allows individuals and charities of any size to leverage the power of mobile giving to raise money for charity.

In 2012, JustTextGiving was awarded Big Society Award for the way it has revolutionised charity giving through text donation.

JustTextGiving is being used by almost 350,000 individual fundraisers and by over 25,000 charities. This has helped raise more than £41 million since its inception in May 2011. In August 2014, more than 800,000 text donations, amounting to over £3.7 million were raised using JustTextGiving for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. In August 2017, Vodafone Foundation match funded over £93,500 of donations made using JustTextGiving for the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire disaster.

To donate money, all a user has to do is text a unique code and the amount they want to donate (£1, £2, £3, £4, £5, £10) to 70070. The total amount donated goes to the charity.  Using JustTextGiving, fundraisers and charities alike can benefit from the power of mobile with 100% of donations going to where it’s needed most.  You don’t even have to be a Vodafone customer to raise money or donate.
