£5 + 1 x standard network text message charge

The standard network charge for text messages is at your network provider’s rates. If you text after the closing date, or if the keyword or short code you text are incorrect, you may still be charged a message at your standard network rate. However you won’t be charged for the donation as you won’t be donating to The Salvation Army.

Who can use text-to-donate

You must obtain permission from the bill payer before sending a text message. If you are under 16 years old, you must have your parent or guardian’s permission to send a text message to The Salvation Army.

Gift Aid

Your donation may be eligible for Gift Aid. We may contact you on the mobile number you used to give you the opportunity to add Gift Aid to your donation. If we send you a link to a page where you can submit your details then, as with any mobile browsing, you may incur charges from your network provider. If we ask you to text those details, then a standard text message fee will be incurred.
