Pledgeling is a platform that powers giving back for brands of all sizes to the causes that they care the most about. We’re on a mission to make the world a better place through corporate giving, and we built Give & Grow to enable your store to help change the world by easily allowing every purchase to support a cause and displaying the real-time “impact” on your site for all to see - look good, feel good, do good!

What problem does it solve?


Most people know that they want to give back, but don’t have the time to structure the partnership or figure out the best nonprofit to give to. Plus they don’t want to keep track of the backend accounting. Pledgeling solves all of these problems with a seamless, end-to-end platform that helps you choose your cause, quantifies the impact, and handles all of the backend accounting.

What does it do?


This app allows merchants to choose their cause, choose their donation amount, and display the real-time “impact” on their sites using a customizable Impact Calculator.

How does the app work with Shopify?


You will decide how much you want to donate per purchase (either a dollar amount or percentage of the total sale) and the Give & Grow integration automatically take that amount per order and donate it to your cause of choice. On your dashboard, you will see a report of all of the donations and also be able to download your tax receipts.

How will this change the look of my store?


The app itself will not change the look of your store. You will be provided, though, with a customizable impact calculator that you can embed directly onto your store to share the live and real-time impact of the donations you have made.

How do I choose a cause and how much to donate from each purchase?


In the app, you can select how your customers’ purchases will give back - either with a fixed amount (i.e. $1 of every purchase supports a cause) or a percentage (i.e. 5% of every purchase supports a cause). You will also select from a list of causes that your store will support. When a purchase is made on your site, Give & Grow will make a donation to your selected cause.

Each cause has an “impact” associated to it with a cost (i.e. $0.10 can provide a meal to help end hunger). Your donations flow into an “Impact Calculator” that shows how many impacts your store has provided. When you add the Impact Calculator to your site, it will automatically increment every time an impact is funded - so that your customers & visitors see the real-time impact your store is making in the world.

Can the customer add an additional donation at checkout?


Yes! This is an additional feature.

Analytics, reporting, & tax receipts


This app gives you a detailed report of each donation, a summary of each time period, and easily downloadable tax receipts for the shop owner to use for tax purposes.

Please note: You will see real-time donation reporting in the app. At the end of each month, the credit card on file will be charged for the sum of that month’s donations, which will be processed by our 501c3 foundation and distributed to the nonprofits. Donations are sent directly from Pledgeling to the nonprofits to remove the backend responsibility of merchants. This makes it easy for any shop to start giving to the cause of their choice.

How do I get started?


Simply install the app and you are then ready to start changing the world!

A few problems with this thats open to abuse

1. You cant choose and display a specific charity you are donating to. only options like "Support the environment" "Save animals" etc and no specific Charities to choose. which will make buyers very suspicious if they dont know who you are donating to and no way to verify you as a "Verified donator/Sponsor" on the charity's website. Most charities list their donors on their website to prevent frauds/fake websites etc advertising their charity and pocketing the donations themselves.

2. Im asked to provide my credit card details to receive Payment. not comfortable with sharing my credit card details in any way. other than by paypal.

I've wanted to give back as part of my store since I started it, but have had to do it manually this whole time. It's been time-consuming and more work than it should be. This app is the perfect solution for taking that burden off of me, and letting me show my customers how much I've given!
