Your Donate Now page can be converted to Pledge Mode to allow users to pledge donations contingent on future events (such as read-a-thons, matching grants etc).
Note: Optional Offset fees to cover credit card processing fees cannot be collected in Pledge mode because the software does not store the users' decisions to opt in or out.
Check out the Demo site for an example of how the software can be set up to accept pledges, then follow the instructions below to set up your own site/page.
When you're ready, you can Send Invitations to Pledge to you supporters.
