Donations are managed by our solution partner Pledgeling Foundation.
There are two types of deductions that Pledgeling Foudation takes from the gross donation amount of your donation.
1) card processing costs
Virtually all donations are made via credit or debit card, and a 2.9% + $.30 per transaction fee covers the card processing costs charged to them for processing your donation.
2) technology fee
There is a 10% technology fee that Pledgeling Foundation pays to its service providers – this pays for payment processing and disbursement, including staff, infrastructure, customer support, office space, and more. This is deducted from the gross donation amount before it is paid to the charitable organization.
