Click on the gradient tool in the tools palette. You can read here for more information on gradients.  Once you have a gradient you like, click and drag it across your text box.  You can play around with the placement of the gradient, change the linear/radial setting, and modify its colors.

Tip:  A gradient cannot be applied to text if the "fill" box is unchecked in the shapes palette.  This is because the gradient is the fill.
