PledgeStar always helped raise more with less work than any other online fundraising system, and three new features take it to the next level:
Rachel del Monte with Ulloa Elementary in San Francisco raves about PledgeStar’s donation matching feature. “Our families were thrilled with how easy PledgeStar makes corporate matching gifts count toward their children's goals,” she says. “Sometimes large companies take three months to process matching gifts, but with PledgeStar, it counts right away.” “Donation matching increased our fundraising 10%!”.
“PledgeStar's new mobile app helped make our fundraiser successful,” says Ann Gomez of Bradshaw Christian School. “The ability to easily email or text donation requests right from your phone's address book is really attractive to younger generations. With the rapid embrace of smartphones and apps, there is a generation of parents at our school that are used to doing things this way.” It was a long-overdue shift according to Ms. Gomez. “It really speaks their language.”
Finally, PledgeStar’s fee coverage option lets donors cover credit card and platform fees. Alia Hedges, from Cooper Mountain Elementary’s PTA, explained that this feature convinced her school to use PledgeStar. “We used PledgeStar’s Fee Coverage feature that lets donors elect to cover credit card and platform fees. It was amazing. It’s hard to give up any money during a fundraiser, and the donations we raised this year covered 100% of the fees.”
Each year PledgeStar finds new ways to help raise more and work less.
