How do pledge campaigns work?
Pledge fundraisers are one of our most popular campaign types, because you can take donations by virtually any unit of activity!
In a nutshell, you will enter the units you’re measuring in campaign setup, like laps run, words spelled, songs danced, goals scored, selfies taken etc. Feel free to get creative!
Your supporters will then visit your campaign page, set a per-unit contribution, and enter their payment information.
At the end of the fundraiser, you’ll enter your activity results, and with one click, close everything out. We’ll then automatically charge payments, send receipts, and update your participants on their progress. It’s all done for you; no more paper, and no more donor follow-up to collect their pledges.
Per-unit contributions won’t be charged until your campaign ends, but any fixed amount (i.e. $100.00 instead of $1.00 per-lap up to $100.00) contributions that are made are processed right away.
