Pledgeling is pleased to offer all registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations & NGOs a free text-to-donate keyword to help drive donations and make it easier than ever to engage your communities. Make it easy for anyone to donate to your cause by putting the opportunity at their fingertips.
Your nonprofit can choose your own keyword that will be sent to donors who text to donate to your cause! Every donation form is Apple Pay & Google Pay enabled, giving users an even faster checkout.
Once you select your keyword, you are free to promote it wherever you like, including on your website, digital ads, emails, events, print materials, or on-air. This service is accessible to over 97% of mobile subscribers in the US on nearly every wireless carrier.
- The user texts your keyword to our shortcode (ex: Text TREES to 707070)
- Our system replies with a link to the donation form.
- The user clicks the link to the web form and fills in the limited amount of info we ask for – users can pay with Apple Pay, Google Pay, or credit card.
- Donation is processed immediately by the Pledgeling Foundation, and a tax receipt is issued via email.
- Pledgeling Technologies' has a 0% platform fee, but donors are able to provide an optional tip to support our free service. We pass through our 2.9% + 30¢ per charge credit card cost.
- The Pledgeling Foundation mails checks at the end of every calendar month to the nonprofit recipient
