As a Supporter you are charged your standard network rate per text sent (check with your network provider for exact amounts).
Each text message is an automatic donation of £10 plus your standard network rate.
The amount you have donated will be taken from your phone credit or phone bill.
Instagiv receive 5% of your donation as an administration fee and the ManxSPCA receives 95% of your donation.
Who can donate?

You must be over 16 years of age to send a donation by text and you must obtain the bill payer’s permission before sending a donation text.
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.
If you are outside the UK/IOM but still using your UK/IOM registered mobile phone number you may incur additional charges to send a donation text.

How are donations used?
The ManxSPCA is the Isle of Man’s only all animal rescue centre, and we are classed as one of the island’s national treasures. We are not funded by government and rely purely on donations (we need £800,000 per year to survive).
