TravelPledge provides your organization with a free year-round fundraising website so your supporters can purchase experiences. When a supporter purchases a certificate, a donation of up to 70% of the purchase price goes to your cause.
At any given time, there will be 3-4 experiences for purchase. The featured experiences will differ based on the location of your donor when they visit your fundraising site. This provides each donor with a local experience they can enjoy.
Additionally, the featured experiences rotate daily so donors will want to return to your Fundraising Site often throughout the year to see what's available.
Promote Your Year-round Fundraising Site
Your year-round fundraising site is simply your TravelPledge website:
Replace "<short name>" with your nonprofit's short name that you provided during signup.
Many nonprofits link to their year-round fundraising site from their organization's website and share it with supporters via email. For a copy/paste email to send supporters, navigate to the Year-round tab in your TravelPledge dashboard.

Receive Payment for Online Purchases
Whenever an item sells from your year-round fundraising site, Geronimo Solutions (TravelPledge's parent company) will mail a check to the address we have on file for your organization. To review your address:

How much will we receive?
The percentage of the purchase price that you keep will depend on the provider's settings who posted the certificates on flash sale. The percentage is be shown to your donors, and it will always be between 35% and 70%.
