JustTextGiving by Vodafone – Information for Donors
A quick and easy way to donate to charity
JustTextGiving by Vodafone makes giving to charity simple, convenient and spontaneous.
All you need to do is:
- Look out for Vodafone Individual Codes (or VICs) on charity and fundraising posters
- Text your chosen charity's VIC plus an amount to 70070 – for example: 'SWIM36 £5'
- Reply to our Gift Aid text – adding Gift Aid means your charity can claim an extra 25%
How do Vodafone Individual Codes (VICs) work?
Let's say your local swimming club needs to raise money for an additional pool. It decides to hold a swim-a-thon, and joins JustTextGiving by Vodafone to aid its fundraising efforts.
You see a poster about the new pool fundraising campaign and notice there's a Vodafone Individual Code (VIC) which might look like this: 'SWIM36'. You text this code along with an amount (£1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10) and the money goes straight to the club. Your text would look like this: 'SWIM36 £5' – and the number you text it to is the JustTextGiving by Vodafone number: 70070.
How much will it cost me to donate?
All text donations are free, and won't come out of any inclusive texts you have as part of your price plan – even if you're not with Vodafone. You just pay the cost of your donation.
How is my donation collected?
When you make a text donation, it'll either be deducted from your mobile phone credit or added to your mobile phone bill – and you won't pay any VAT on your donation.
Can I add Gift Aid to my donation?
Yes. Just follow the instructions we send you by text every time you make a donation using JustTextGiving by Vodafone. By adding Gift Aid, you'll help charities reclaim the tax on your donation from HMRC.
How much of my donation goes to charity?
Every penny you donate using JustTextGiving by Vodafone goes to your chosen charity. And if you add Gift Aid, charities get even more money by reclaiming any tax you've already paid on the amount you give.
Text Santa aims to improve the quality of life for people in the UK by raising funds for six national charities that provide practical help and support to others.
