You’ve got the theme, you’ve got the location, you’ve planned the menu, but did you know you could incorporate giving right into the invitation? Pledgeling powers donations through Evite, making it easy to engage your guests to join you in giving back. Guests can easily donate without ever leaving your Evite invitation. See how it works below and Get Started HERE.


Run a #GivingTuesday campaign and process donations right on your website for a cause of your choice. Select the nonprofit that you want to support, set a fundraising goal, and watch the donations track in real-time on your custom page!

Choose between a Thermometer Page or a custom layout, as shown for our #AnguillaStronger hurricane recovery campaign with the Four Seasons Resorts & Residences. Contact our team to learn more.


Use Give & Grow, our 5-star rated Shopify app, to collect donations through your store for up to 12 nonprofits of your choice! In a matter of minutes, you’ll have your campaign up and running. The app makes it simple to designate a single product, collection or site-wide sale to donate from. The app provides a detailed report of each donation, downloadable tax receipts, and an impact calculator so you can share your #GivingTuesday impact in realtime with your customers! Check out (pun intended) how it works with our store partner ZOX HERE.
