Pledgeling is pleased to offer all registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations & approved NGOs a free and simple version of our text-to-donate service to help drive donations to your cause!

Now anyone, anywhere with a mobile phone serviced by US wireless carriers can donate to your organization directly from their phones. Did you know the average open rate of a text message is 98% vs the average rate of email is 24%? And now with over 90% of Americans on mobile phones, nonprofits of all sizes are successfully using mobile services like text-to-donate to reach & engage new donors.

To see how text-to-donate works, check out the example shown below of a campaign we created for The World Is Just A Book Away (WIJABA). Try it! Text WIJABA to 707070

To claim this free offer, simply click this link and complete the form. Your nonprofit can choose your own keyword, message, and visual content (including a video, image, or gif) that will be sent to donors who text to donate to your cause! Every keyword comes with a custom branded Apple Pay donation form to make the process of donating as simple as a thumbprint.

Once your keyword is up & running (in approx. 1-3 business days), you are free to promote it wherever you like, including on your website, digital ads, emails, events, print materials, or on-air. This service is accessible to over 97% of mobile subscribers in the US on nearly every wireless carrier.

All donations are captured and viewable in real-time by logging in to  Pledgeling’s free Impact Hub. If your nonprofit doesn’t have access yet to the Impact Hub, simply request it at While you’re there, check to ensure your nonprofit’s public profile is up-to-date with it’s mission statement, website, and social media handles. And to help Pledgeling promote your mission and vision with our brand partners & donors, upload your very own impact stories & dollar handles that we can share to drive even more donations your way.
