Pledge It is Introducing a 0% Platform Fee

HARRISBURG, PA, June 2018 – Pledge It, the nation’s leading performance-based crowdfunding platform, is introducing a 0% platform fee for all campaign organizers.

Pledge It will no longer charge a platform fee based on the amount raised by the campaign. Instead of charging organizers a platform fee, Pledge It will present donors the option to give Pledge It a voluntary “tip” to support their mission of empowering more teams and athletes to drive a positive social impact. The donor’s entire gift will benefit the beneficiary, but the donor can add a tip on top of their donation to support Pledge It.

“From the beginning, Pledge It’s mission has been to provide individual athletes and teams a platform to drive positive social change. We’re incredibly excited about our 0% platform fee, because it allows us to reach even more people and amplify their impact,” said Scott Shirley, Founder & CEO of Pledge It. “We understand that every dollar counts when you’re supporting a cause. We also believe there are so many that share our passion for making a difference that we can rely on the generosity of our donor community to continue to provide a best-in-class solution.”

Pledge It’s 0% platform fee will become effective for all campaign organizers in mid-July.

Pledge It was founded in 2014 on the idea that the power of sport can change the world. Pledge It empowers teams and athletes to raise money based on their gameday performance. Fans can pledge for every home run, touchdown, or goal scored to raise funds for their cause.
