When churches run campaigns or fundraiser, pledges are ofter collected from the congregation as a commitment to the cause.
Pushpay's provides a tool to add the pledges for Campaigns, so churches can forecast the outcome of a campaign with the pledges and measure against the total collected donation.
Where do I start?
If campaigns is available on your plan, the "Add a Pledge" option will be visible underneath the Campaigns button on the sidebar menu:
Click in and you can see the Pledge entry page underneath the Campaigns session.
Add a Pledge
To add a Pledge for your givers, you need to first create a Campaign. Choose you campaign you need to add pledges for from the drop down menu.
Search for a giver by the community member name and enter the pledge amount. You can add a new member if you couldn't find the giver's profile.
The pledge will be added to the campaign. You can find the total pledge amount in the Campaigns dashboard and the overview page.
Update a Pledge
When you add a Pledge for a giver, we will check if a Pledge has already been added for this giver to the same Campaign.
If there is already a Pledge added, you can choose to update the Pledge amount if there is a change requested from the giver; or you can delete the previous Pledge if it is a mistaken Pledge.
After a Pledge is deleted, you can add a new Pledge for the giver to the same Campaign.
Search for a Pledge
You can search a Pledge by the name of the pledger on the overview page.
If you have entered a pledge by mistake, click the bin icon to delete the pledge and add a new one.
