That’s why our platform is free—so you can pursue your passions and make a positive social impact.
Many crowdfunding sites charge 5% to 10% in fees just to use their platform. Pledge It is free because we understand that when you’re trying to make a difference, every dollar counts.
While our platform is free, all online fundraising requires a third-party credit card processor, which charges a small fee to allow money to be safely collected and transferred online. Each donation will incur a 2.9% plus $0.30 per transaction fee to cover payment processing.
We offer special programs for our nonprofit and charity partners. Contact us to learn how Pledge It can help you with your fundraising needs.
We rely on the generosity of community members like you to help us provide a free crowdfunding platform for athletes and non-profits who want to make a difference. We are incredibly grateful for those who have contributed and by doing so, help us maintain and improve our free platform so that we can help even more people.

How does Pledge It support itself?
We rely on the generosity of our community to us help us maintain and improve our free platform.

Once a donor has selected their desired pledge or donation amount, they will be presented the option to ‘tip’ Pledge It.
