Making a donation to the Rob George Foundation (RGF) can be as simple as sending a text – literally!
Most of our supporters own a mobile phone. So, thinking about it, utilising your phone is arguably the easiest and most convenient way to make a donation. When you read or hear about the work of the RGF it’s often when you’re out and about, browsing through Facebook, for example, or at an event, and it’s at this point you are most motivated and determined to make a donation (perhaps with no cash in your wallet) but at your fingertips you have the most accessible method on the planet – your mobile phone – why not give it a go and see how easy it is!
Text-to donate is a very simple and amazingly quick way to donate and raise much-needed funds for the RGF and ensures that we are able to continue to support our two objectives:
- To provide practical and/or financial support to young people with life threatening or terminal illnesses.
- To provide financial support to young people who demonstrate exceptional commitment and/or ability in the worlds of sport or the performing arts but may be held back by their financial situation from pursuing their goals.
How do I donate?
You can donate a one-off amount of £1, £2, £3, £5, £10, £15 or £20.
All you have to do is:
It doesn’t matter if you include a £ or not, as long as the keyword ‘RGF’ is spelt correctly (it is not case sensitive so can be capitals or lower case) and the amount you’d like to donate is included in numerical value, not spelled out with letters, the donation will work!
Please be aware, the text will cost the donor the value of the donation plus one standard rate message .
Can I donate regularly using this method?
You certainly can. Donr takes the pressure off your hands when remembering to donate monthly with the recurring donation option. All this means is, instead of donating your amount once, it donates the same amount once a month along with your phone bill – couldn’t be easier right?!
All you have to do is follow the same steps as above but add MONTHLY after you type RGF.
E.g. texting: RGFMONTHLY 10 to 70085 will donate £10 once a month!
Every single donation to the RGF makes a difference, irrespective of the amount. Furthermore, every single penny goes to young people the foundation is set up to support.
Thank you for your support!
