We’re excited to be heading into 2024 with comprehensive event management solutions that will transform the way you organize and manage your fundraising events. Over the past year, we’ve expanded our platform’s offerings to meet your organization’s growing needs.
Whether you’re hosting a peer-to-peer campaign, charity bike race, 5K run, golf tournament, or annual gala, Pledge It has something new for you!
Here are some of our favorite new features from 2023:
Sell registration and add-ons in an intuitive, mobile-friendly interface
Our user-friendly ticketing system simplifies the registration process for participants, allowing them to register themselves and others in a single order. Event registration is customizable based on your needs: you can ask custom questions, enable discount codes, set minimum fundraising commitments, and more. Whether you’re selling tickets for your gala or requiring registration for your next in-person run/walk, we’ve got you covered.
Let participants showcase their commitment to your cause by selling some swag alongside registration! Whether it's T-shirts, hats, mugs, or more, attendees can purchase items during or after registration, supporting your cause while getting something tangible in return. Set quantity limits, collect color or size preferences, and mark orders as fulfilled directly in your dashboard.
Silent auctions can be added to any style of Pledge It campaign
Hosting a silent auction at your event? Our platform allows you to manage and promote your silent auction with ease. You can showcase unlimited items and track bids in real-time, while your bidders can take advantage of SMS notifications to stay on top of their bids. With automated charging and receipts for easy collections, you’ll have all the tools you need to maximize your auction’s earnings.
We understand that every penny counts for nonprofit organizations, so we’ve given you more choices for how to reduce your event’s transaction fees. Organizations using our Donor Cover Fee model are reporting 95% or more of their transaction fees covered by donors. Let us help you save on credit card processing fees so you can retain more funds for your mission!
Campaign creation at your fingertips
You’ve got the power to create what you need, when you need it! Design a new campaign from scratch at any time or duplicate a previous campaign, pulling over your settings, design, and customizations. We've got campaign options for your in-person events, peer-to-peer campaigns, donation only pages, and more.
Easily add, organize, and hyperlink sponsor logos on your campaign page. Don’t worry about having to resize images before uploading – our tool helps you crop and standardize sizing, optimize for mobile view, and make sure sponsors get the shout-out they need.
Repeating a campaign just got easier. Your fundraisers that have participated in past campaigns on Pledge It now have access to their donor history, allowing them to invite past donors to give with a single click! Team captains have a similar tool at their fingertips, allowing them to easily assemble their team for the next campaign. Watch the donor invite tool in action below.
Participants returning to your annual fundraiser can easily reinvite previous supporters
Our dedicated Customer Success team is here to help you plan your next gala, golf event, run/walk, or race. No matter your plans, we’ve got strategies and best practices to help you amplify your mission. Schedule a time to chat with our Customer Success team or simply login to your account to create your next campaign.
Thank you for entrusting us with your fundraising efforts in 2023. We're excited at how we’ve expanded our platform over the past year and are looking forward to bringing you even more in 2024. Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to innovate and provide you with the best tools for your fundraising success!
