What problem does Give & Grow solve?


94% of consumers want to shop from companies that give back. Most business owners, though, don’t have the time to keep track of the backend accounting for their philanthropy. Pledgeling solves all of these problems with a seamless, end-to-end platform that helps you choose your cause or nonprofit, quantifies the impact, and handles the donation disbursement and all of the backend accounting.

3 Easy Steps to Get Started Today:

1. Choose your cause or nonprofit

Choose up to 12 nonprofit organizations or choose to donate to one of our funds.

2. Choose your donation amount

Donate a specific dollar amount or percentage of sales, ask your customers to add a donation at checkout, or both!

3. Display your Impact

Embed our customizable impact calculator on your site to show your real-time impact.

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?


To get started, install the app into your Shopify account. From there, you will be directed to set up your impact calculator - including choosing your cause, your donation amount, color for the calculator, and icon to be displayed. You will receive the embed code to place anywhere on your site that you want. You are then ready to start changing the world!

Who is Pledgeling?


Pledgeling powers social impact for brands of all sizes to the causes and charities that they care the most about. We’re on a mission to make the world a better place through giving back, and we built Give & Grow to enable your store to help change the world by easily allowing every purchase to make a donation to a cause, or charity of your choice, and displaying the real-time “impact” on your site for all to see. We've raised over $10M for over 10,000 nonprofits... and counting!

UPDATE FEBRUARY 2018: Now you can match your customer's donations! Embed the ability for customers to add a donation at checkout and you can choose to match it. Install now and start giving!

UPDATE JANUARY 2018: You can now support multiple charities at once (up to 12 at one time) and give your customers the choice of where they want the donation from their purchase to go.

UPDATE DECEMBER 2017: Now you can customize and differentiate the donation amount per product, and also add the ability to add a donation at checkout.

UPDATE NOVEMBER 2017: We added the ability for you to choose a specific nonprofit to support, so now you have the option between supporting a cause (i.e. literacy) or a nonprofit (i.e. First Book).

Faced some issues with adding the code to include donation option for my customer and Melissa was extremely helpful and efficient. On a Sunday nevertheless. Amazing app and services!

Recently installed this app and it was easy. The parts I did not understand I emailed help@pledgeling.org and Melissa emailed me and was able to help me. She was amazing!

Update: I heard from Give and Grow and they said they never received my email. They also showed me a second order that I was changed for, and it was correct that they should have charged for it. In other words, they didn't double charge me. They only charged for what they were supposed to charge for. So I'm happy to say this review is back to five stars and I'm going to reinstall their app.

Update on last review. I changed it from a five star review to a one star. They double charge for the donations. I had my donation set at $5 and they charged me $10 for the order. I sent an email asking about it weeks ago and never heard back. If it was an error and I hear from them after this one star review, I'll update this review.

Wonderful support. They added my preferred charity in just a few days. Can't wait to put it on my website. Thanks for this great app!

So far so good! I requested a small charity and they were added within a couple hours. I am not able to set up the shopping cart button in my theme as directed but they are willing to do that for me. I'll update as I get going!

great app, allows you to contribute a portion of funds to charity. They have a lot ' of charities already set up, so it is easy to use. also comes with a "total contributed" widget to display on site. I uninstalled because we are not going to contribute to charity as a part of purchase anymore.

Love this app! It allows my supporters to select which organizations they will like to donate to! I also don't have to worry about the calculations as it is automated! Thanks Pledgeling!
