What is EducationMatters Text to Donate?

EducationMatters Text to Donate is a quick and convenient method to make a difference. With a simple text message, you can contribute to ongoing initiatives, projects, and campaigns at Calgary Board of Education (CBE) schools. It’s a hassle-free process that offers flexibility to both donors and schools.

How Does It Work?

Here’s a step-by-step guide to using Text to Donate:

Step 1: Compose a Text Message

Open your messaging app and create a new text message.

Step 2: Enter the Recipient

In the “To” field, type “30333.” This is the designated number for Text to Donate transactions.

Step 3: Type the Message

In the body of the text message, enter “EdMatters” followed by the unique keyword for the CBE school you want to support. Keywords for each school can be found here. If you don’t have a school in mind, you can contribute to EducationMatters Area of Greatest Need by texting EdMatters on its own without a keyword.

Step 4: Choose the Amount

You will be prompted to donate either $5 or $10, depending on your preference. Just type the chosen amount in the text message.

Step 5: Send the Message

Once you’ve composed your message, hit the “Send” button.

Step 6: Support Students

You’ll receive a confirmation message, and your donation will be added to your monthly cellphone bill.

EducationMatters Text to Donate is one of the simplest ways to give. You don’t need to fill out forms, visit websites, or make phone calls. With just a few taps on your smartphone, you’re contributing to a good cause. For parents and guardians who don’t have credit cards or who may not have the means to make a larger donation Text to Donate is a great way to ensure everyone feels part of the community.

Your donation directly benefits the CBE school you choose to support. Schools can allocate these funds to their most pressing needs, whether it’s technology upgrades, learning materials, food support, or other essential resources. Text to Donate is available all year round. This means you can support Calgary public education whenever you’re inspired to do so, not just during specific campaigns.

This service is provided by Mobile Giving Foundation Canada, and 100% of your donation will go to EducationMatters.
