Pledgeling, the easiest way to donate to charity, today announced it was selected by Swagbucks to handle the company’s employee giving program. Each quarter, Swagbucks gives its employees $50 to donate to the charity of his or her choice.
The funds are credited directly into the employee’s Pledgeling wallet, allowing the individual to donate to multiple charities in his or her own name through the Pledgeling mobile application, or website. The charity is then notified that the donations were part of Swagbucks’ employee giving program.
Based on research from Dunham & Company, nearly $10 billion dollars in donations is lost to problems in the charitable donation flow, from cumbersome checkout processes to a lack of mobile capability. Donors using Pledgeling are six times more likely to complete their donation via Pledgeling due to the introduction of one-click donations and a best-in-breed mobile application, which ensures more donations are made and more money goes directly to charity. In the last several months, Pledgeling customers have given over $500,000 to more than 1,000 non-profit organizations without taking a penny for transaction fees.
Swagbucks has over 15 million members and has awarded millions of dollars in real rewards. Headquartered in El Segundo, California,
