As part of our ongoing fundraising initiatives we are part of the JustTextGiving service from Vodafone and JustGiving. If you would like to donate, the easiest way is by using your mobile phone. To make a donation to GroceryAid with JustTextGiving simply send a text message to 70070 including our code - GAID00 - and a monetary amount up to £10. For example:
You can donate £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10.
After you've sent the text, you’ll receive a confirmation text back containing details on how to add Gift Aid, meaning GroceryAid could benefit from an extra 25%.
Your mobile operator will pass 100% of the text donation on to JustTextGiving.
The minimum text donation is £1 and all donations must be in whole pounds sterling. The maximum text donation allowed is £10 for all mobile operators.
Donations sent via text will usually incur your standard text message fee. Please refer to your tariff for details of your standard text message fee.
Your donation will be deducted from your mobile phone credit, or added to your monthly phone bill.
This service is free for GroceryAid, and anyone on any mobile network can use it to donate. You can find out more about the service on the JustTextGiving website.
Gift Aid It
Please consider adding Gift Aid as this enables us to receive an additional 25p for every pound given. Charities can claim Gift Aid tax relief of 25p on every pound you give.
NB. To qualify for Gift Aid, you must pay an amount of UK Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax at least equal to the tax that the charity reclaims on your donations in the appropriate tax year (currently 25p for each £1 given). Tax year is 6 April one year to 5 April the next.
Link to Your Fundraising Page
JustTextGiving can also be used by fundraisers and linked to a JustGiving page via text message.
Once your fundraising page has been created on JustGiving simply create a unique six-digit code, share it and then receive text donations to your JustGiving page.
All text messages are free to send on all network and 100% of every donation (plus 25% Gift Aid if this option is selected) goes to GroceryAid.
