Fundraisers created and hosted on the Pledge platform are free to set up and use – there are no subscription or per-fundraiser fees. Pledge is compensated via tips.
In most cases there is no deduction for payment card processing costs:
- Pledge covers all payment card fees for any donation less than $1,000 made using Pledge’s products on the Pledge platform: our Fundraiser Pages, Donation Forms, and Zoom App.
- In all other cases, such as donations made on one of our partner's platforms, Pledgeling Foundation deducts payment card processing costs (~2.9% processing fee + $.30 transaction fee) from the donation when the donation is processed.
There may be disbursement-related fees. See this article.
