1. SUBMIT YOUR PROJECT
Submit your project once you have logged in (and registered) via the “start a project” menu link.
Make sure to complete all the required fields, especially your target amount, and fill in some detail about the cause, and yourself.
Submit and wait for your project to be approved. This is normally within 12 hours.
2. SHARE YOUR CAUSE
Your project will only succeed if people know about it. Each cause has social media sharing icons which make this easy as pie.
3. UPDATE YOUR SUPPORTERS
When you login to the platform you have a very easy to use dashboard under the “my account” section.
Make sure to keep your supporters engaged by letting them know how you are getting on with your charity or cause. This encourages sharing.
4. FINALIZE AND WITHDRAW
When you are done with your fundraising (yay you!) you are able to withdraw all the contributions from your dashboard. At the moment the only method on the backend is via Paypal, but as we are collecting the funds locally we request you send us an email when you wish to withdraw funds and we will transfer these the next business day.
While it’s free to launch your campaign, fees are deducted from each donation.
Pledge-a-Portion deducts a fee of 5%.
