Pledje Fundraising Solutions facilitates public donations to campaigns ("Donors") and enables contributions directly to specific Charities. Any donation made to a Charity through our Services will be subject to a Services fee. Please note that Pledje is not a charity. If you or your charity wish to register to be listed as a charitable organization on our Platform, kindly contact us at [email protected] for assistance in this process. While we strive to list legitimate and worthy Organizations and/or Charities, we cannot guarantee the actual activities of such entities. We bear no responsibility for the accuracy of information provided by Organizations and/or Charities. Prior to selecting a specific Organization and/or Charity, you must conduct your own research, and we do not vouch for the worthiness or standards of any such entity. Our Services serve as an administrative platform. Pledje facilitates donation transactions between Organizations and/or Charities and users but is not a party to any agreement between them. We do not act as a broker, agent, financial institution, creditor, or insurer for any user. Pledje disclaims all liability regarding the conduct of, or information provided by, Organizations and/or Charities or their representatives, as permitted by law. We cannot guarantee that a particular campaign, Organization, and/or Charity will receive specific donations or any donations at all. We do not personally endorse any campaign and do not assure the accuracy of information provided by a user through the Services. We explicitly disclaim liability or responsibility for the success of any campaign or fundraising purpose. As a donor, you are responsible for determining the value and appropriateness of contributing to any campaign or Organization and/or Charity. We do not verify the information provided by Organizations and/or Charities, nor do we ensure that donations will align with the intended fundraising purpose. It is the sole responsibility of Organizations and/or Charities to use donations in accordance with applicable laws. While we are not obligated to verify the proper use of raised funds, we take fraudulent activity and fund misuse seriously. If you suspect misuse of funds by an Organization and/or Charity, contact us at [email protected]. Donors may also be covered by the pledje Guarantee, details of which can be found on this page.


Donations are currently accepted via major credit cards, checks, or ACH transfers. Pledje reserves the right to add or modify payment methods at its discretion. Users must adhere to the terms and conditions of their chosen payment method. Users are solely responsible for any applicable taxes on amounts paid or received through the Site. Pledje will deduct relevant charges and taxes from payable amounts as required by law. When a user pledges a donation, Pledje sends a notification to the user. Donors agree to provide payment information at the time of pledging to a fundraising campaign. A hold will be placed upon pledging, and if the campaign succeeds, payment will be collected at or after the campaign deadline. After donation, donors receive an automatically-generated receipt via email. However, due to spam filters and connectivity issues, receipt delivery is not guaranteed. Donors consent to Pledje and its payment partners authorizing a hold or charge on their payment method for the pledged amount at the time of the pledge and upon campaign completion. Donors agree to have sufficient funds or credit available at the campaign deadline to ensure collectibility of the pledge. Pledje does not offer refunds. Nonprofit organizations are not required to grant refund requests from donors. Due to chargebacks, Pledje does not guarantee that the charity will receive the full pledged amount minus fees. Pledje and its payment partners deduct fees before transmitting campaign proceeds. Fee structures may vary, currently set at 2.9% + 30c per credit card transaction and 0.8% (up to $5.00) for ACH transfers. Pledje reserves the right to cancel a pledge at any time and for any reason, as well as reject or suspend a campaign without liability for resulting damages. Pledje does not comment on the reasons for such actions. For all campaigns, Pledje provides the nonprofit with each donor’s name, email, mailing address, and pledged amount. Nonprofit organizations should refrain from taking action based on having their campaign posted on the Site until they have access to and authorization to use the funds. There might be a delay between a successful campaign’s conclusion and fund accessibility, typically up to one week. Pledje disclaims liability for any damages or losses incurred through Service use. We are not obligated to mediate disputes between users or between users and third parties arising from Service use. Pledje does not oversee fund usage for campaign purposes or endorse user submissions. Users release Pledje and its officers, employees, agents, and successors from claims, known or unknown, arising from such disputes and Service use.
