The Text Giving program is coordinated in Australia by the Telco Together Foundation, with support from Telstra, Vodafone, Optus and program aggregator partner Ansible.
This program follows on from a successful 24 month pilot period, whereby 20 Australian charities trialled the technology to assist in the evaluation of the program functionality from a donor, charity and carrier viewpoint.
Telco Together Foundation is a registered charity that brings together the telecommunications industry in support of Australian communities in need. The core focus of the Foundation’s work is the development of community projects that build on the technology, reach and capabilities of the telecommunications industry to support the not for profit sector of Australia, as well as promoting fundraising, volunteering and workplace giving across member organisations.
Members of the Foundation include Telstra, Optus, Vodafone, Vocus, NBN, Nokia, Equinix, iiNet, Cisco, and 14 other ICT organisations. The Foundation is governed by an Advisory Board that has Executive Officer level representation from members.
