We're partnering with Pledgeling, the organization that provides a safe and seamless way of money transfer from your supporters to a charity of your choice.
Pledgeling Foundation, a nonprofit which maintains a "donor-advised fund," will make every reasonable effort to regrant net donations to a charity of your choice.
Once you create a challenge and your friends pledge their support, their information is taken by Pledgeling to be later used once you complete your exercise. Pledgeling will then use the info provided by your friends to charge them with the amount they specified in their pledges and transfer it to a charity.
Under federal law, contributions to donor-advised funds such as Pledgeling Foundation are considered irrevocable gifts and are not refundable. In cases of user error where we have not yet regranted funds, we may be able to reverse the transactions. If you have questions, please see the Pledgeling support pages.
Every donation made by you or your friends is tax-deductible in the US to the full extent allowed by law. Donation receipts will be provided to all the donors by email.
