Text to Donate & Support Football Aid/Field of Dreams!

Dear Football Aid Supporter,

First and foremost we would once again like to offer our most sincere thanks to you for the truly fantastic support you have shown to Football Aid in recent months. We've been overwhelmed by your good will and it's helped us enormously in these challenging times. With there now being some light at the end of the tunnel, we look forward to be back doing what we do best in the not too distant future.

In the meantime, we are now reaching out to you with the most important ask we have had to make in our 20 year history.

As with many businesses and charities across the world, COVID-19 has had a significant impact on Football Aid and our ability to deliver our magical supporter led events.

In order to safeguard our future and protect our ongoing commitment to our charity partners, we hope to count on you to support our new ‘Text to Donate’ campaign.

By using Donr.com's Text Giving platform it is now quick and easy for you to instantly support our cause by simply texting the keyword FOOTY to 70085. 

All donations will go direct to our parent charity Field of Dreams and you can even Gift Aid your donation by following the link in the reply text message.

We thank you for your truly magnificent and loyal support.

Stay safe.

The Football Aid Team

Q) How does Text Giving Work?

A) Donr.com's Text Giving service gives you the chance to support our cause by texting a keyword to donate £10, which will then be added to your phone bill or deducted from your credit. Texts cost £10 plus one standard rate text. 

Q) Can I Gift Aid my donation?

A) Yes, because your donation will be made direct to our parent charity Field of Dreams, we can reclaim the tax back from the UK Government. This means that if you donate £10, and use Gift Aid, it's actually worth £12.50.

To Gift Aid your donation just follow the link in the reply text message and take a few seconds to fill out your details on Donr.com's website. Football Aid will then be able to use your Gift Aid declaration to collect the tax from HMRC. 

Q) Do Donr.com collect a Fee for the Donations?

A) Yes. They don't charge any signup or monthly fees, but they do collect a small 5% fee per donation. 

Q) Will you use my mobile number for additional marketing messages?

A) No, please don't worry, we won't use your mobile number for any further marketing communications.
