We at Dial2Donate are proud to be able to provide 0300 numbers to any charitable organisation absolutely free of charge, courtesy of our partners at Number Supermarket. Being a number range reserved exclusively for charities and other similar organisations, 0300 is quickly becoming the main way in which consumers are comfortable getting in touch with not-for-profits.
Through our partnership, we aim to make getting an 0300 easy and accessible to any charitable organisation in the UK. Our offer means that you will pay no set-up fee and no set monthly charge for having an 0300 number – hugely eliminating the barriers for small and medium sized operations getting a non-geographic number for their main telephone line.

The service is easy to set-up, and can simply adapt to the system you currently have in place – allowing for the routing of calls to individual departments or people with no extra infrastructure or hardware needed. Your free 0300 number can be set-up and ready to receive calls in minutes.
From the point of view of the person dialling, calls to 0300 numbers cost no more than an equivalent call to an 01 or 02 number, and will legally be included in the minutes allowances of mobile packages. Part of the reason the 0300 range was introduced was in order to eliminate the call confusion costs of 08 numbers, which had previously been the most popular number for most not-for-profits.

Perfect for not-for-profits that aren’t registered charities
We needed a simple “0300” solution for some very specific local services we had developed. Since we started operating across multiple sites I needed the flexibility of routing calls intelligently between them. We had the 0300 number assigned to us within a few hours, and after a bit of hand holding had a reliable system set up very quickly indeed. Highly commended service.
