Donating to Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre is a quick and easy way to help us support local women and girls affected by sexual violence.
How does making a text donation work?
Supporters should text the CRCC keyword they wish to donate to (detailed below), along with the numerical value for the amount they wish to donate. For example, if you want to donate £20 to our keyword ‘SURVIVORS’, you would text ‘SURVIVORS 20’ to the relevant short code number e.g. 70085.
Our text donation service allows supporters to donate every whole amount ranging from the value of £1 up to £20 (inclusive).
The keyword must be spelt correctly. The value of the donation must be given in numerical digits, rather than spelled out with letters.
The text will cost the supporter the value of the donation plus one standard rate message.
Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre accepts no responsibility for texts sent to the incorrect shortcode or donations failing to come to us due to misspelling of keywords.
Can I make a text donation?
You must be 16 years old or over to send a text donation. You must obtain permission from the bill payer before sending the text message.
What mobile can I send a text donation from?
You can only donate from a UK mobile.
What is the cost of the text donation and how much goes to Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre?
All texts are charged at the amount set out for the relevant keyword below plus one message at your standard network rate (based on your service provider rates).
100% of your text donation will be received by CRCC.
There is no limit on the number of times you may make a donation via text but there is a daily limit of £30 on text donations. You will not be able to donate more by text from the same number on the same day, but you may still incur your standard network message charge if you try.
Will you continue to contact me by text after my donation?
Each time you make a text donation, you will receive a thank you text and then a text giving you the opportunity to Gift Aid your donation. After that, we will not communicate with you via text.
If you would like to hear from us about our work including our newsletter and information about fundraising, events and volunteering then please do sign up to our mailing list here.
How will the donation appear on my phone bill?
How the transactions appear on your phone bill differs by mobile network provider. Generally, the date and the amount of the donation should appear next to ‘Donr’ or a shortcode. For example, donations using an O2 mobile appear on the bill as ‘70730 – Premium Text’.
Your donation may be eligible for Gift Aid. You will receive a text after you have donated giving 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 when visiting that page. If we ask you to text those details, then a standard network message charge (based on your service provider rates) will be incurred.
