One of the easiest ways to donate to World Land Trust (WLT) is by making an SMS donation. 100% of the donation will go to the WLT.
How to make a text message donation to the World Land Trust (UK only)
- Text LAND12 £5 or LAND12 £10 to 70070 to donate £5 or £10 respectively.
- The amount donated, plus your standard network charge, will be deducted from your mobile account.
- You can donate a maximum of £30 by SMS in any month (e.g. three text donations of £10).
Where will your text donation go?
Your donation will go to the WLT Action Fund, for WLT's most urgent project needs.
Why donate by text?
- 100% of your donation will go directly to the WLT.
- Your donation is Gift Aid eligible if you are a UK tax payer, which means the WLT will receive more at no extra cost to you. See below for more details.
SMS Text Donations - the 'small print'
The text donation service is provided by JustGiving who do not currently charge charities or donors for the service.
Texts are a single £5 or £10 donation (plus your standard network charge), of which 100% will be donated to WLT and charged to your mobile phone bill or pre-paid account. Please refer to your tariff for details of your standard text message fee.
Please obtain the bill payer's permission before making a text donation to the World Land Trust.
All donations must be in whole pounds sterling. Text donations may be refunded in certain circumstances (such as where the donation was sent from your mobile phone by mistake or without your permission) at the absolute discretion of your mobile phone operator. If you wish to request a refund you should contact your mobile phone operator to discuss this with them.
Gift Aid information
Your donation is also Gift Aid eligible, so WLT can claim more at no extra cost to you. After you send a donation via text we will send you a text in response, confirming your donation and providing you with the opportunity to add Gift Aid to your donation. We will include a link to a web page where you can provide your details to enable us to collect Gift Aid on your behalf. Just confirm that you are a UK taxpayer in accordance with the requirements of the Gift Aid scheme.
Will the WLT contact me by SMS?
We do not currently contact our supporters via text messages.
If you do not receive a confirmation message your donation was not successful and you will not be charged. If this happens, contact your network for help.
What about WLT's old donation number?
Our earlier text donation number was 70300. We are no longer using this. Please rest assured that the World Land Trust have never and will not charge your mobile phone for ongoing services. Our text donation service to 70300 would have charged your phone only once - when you sent the text message. (Other companies and organisations use 70300 for other services. If you are unsure why you have been charged, contact your service provider.)
