EDUpledge is an Online Platform for Schools and Universities to Launch Their Fundraising Campaigns
EDUpledge bridges the gap for fundraising managers making it easy to leverage technology, social media, and online payment processing.
You can get started in as little as 15 minutes.
- Create your account
- Enter your campaign details
- Select your donation preferences
- Launch your campaign! It’s that easy…
How Does It Work?
EDUpledge lets you run either a traditional campaign where donors can pledge any amount the like or you can run a new ‘crowdfunding’ style campaign which lets you specify various donation/reward levels.
You can also choose whether to accept all donations as they are given or only accept funds when the campaign reaches it’s target goal.
What Donation Options Are Available?
Both Paypal and Credit Card payment options are available to donors.
EDUpledge does not take donations or payments on your behalf but rather provides you full access to specify your own Paypal account and your own Stripe.com account details for credit card processing.
With Stripe.com, it takes just a matter of minutes to setup your account, enter your bank details, and start accepting online payments.
How Much Does It Cost?
EDUpledge is included with Platinum Package.
We do not charge a fee for payments accepted through this platform. You will however have a merchant transaction fee from either Paypal or Stripe.com when a donation is pledged.
As of April 2014 the current fees for Paypal are 2.4% + $0.30 per transaction* and the current fees for Stripe.com are 2.7% + $0.30 per transaction*.
Who Created This?
The reason we created EDUpledge is because we saw a need for a platform such as this specifically devoted to Schools and Universities. This is such a fantastic opportunity for fundraising managers to leverage what they are already doing and take advantage of technology to increase their fundraising results.
We wanted to take this opportunity to provide value to our community and recommend our related services.
