HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS CRUSH FUNDRAISING GOAL WITH AUTO-ENGAGEMENT
Students for Senegal has a mission of expanding access to education in the West African nation of Senegal by building learning centers, providing education supplies and promoting cross cultural exchange. The organization is led by high school students who had an idea to partner with their local town government for the 2018 Turkey Trot 5k Race. Students for Senegal and the town offered free race entry for students if they raised at least $50 through their Pledge It campaign with incentives if they raised more.
"Overall, Pledge It was fast to set up, the cost can’t be beat (credit card fees only), and most importantly, easy to use so that students could get their own pages set up with a minimum of time and effort. The daily updates and great support from the team helped us stay on top of the fundraisers progress and follow up with those who needed a few more reminders to get going. Their staff reached out to us multiple times with helpful suggestions and tips and really cared about making sure our campaign was successful. One of their team members even came to cheer us on at our race! Altogether, these features allowed us to more than triple our original fundraising goal making it one of the most successful events we have ever run!"
