pledge4good lets you advocate for a favorite nonprofit by inviting friends to make a donation when events from your life occur (e.g. you bowl a strike or a favorite basketball team wins). On our web and mobile platform, we make it easy for you to invite friends to donate to your pledge (as little as $1 per event) or “brag” about your strike or favorite team’s victory as you share it on social media. Since launching 2 months ago, we have raised nearly $15k for nonprofits, of which 75% has gone to organizations a donor has never given to previously.
