Did You Know? A Pledge for Every Purpose
We continually evolve the pledge functionality in Revolution Online because our clients find new donor-centered ways to enhance these commitments to giving. Here are just a few of the ways that you can shape your pledge programs.
- A pledge doesn’t have to be limited to sustaining monthly gifts. We support a variety of pledge payment schedules – monthly, quarterly, annual, or defined by individual – and flexible durations so a pledge can be limited by a certain timeframe (like a monthly pledge that lasts a year – so 12 payments) or to continue on until requested by the donor.
- When combined with our credit card processing partner Vantiv’s recycling service, donor retention is infinitely easier. This service automatically retries failed donations and can often find the updated card without your having to contact the donor.
- Online sustainers (or those that are acquired through street canvass) are seamlessly incorporated into our comprehensive pledge processing service. A single platform regardless of how you attract your most committed donors.
- Pledge program statistics can be measured by pledge type, status, duration, close reason and a variety of other attributes that are available on every pledge. In the coming months, we’ll be adding pledge specific data visualizations to make this analysis even easier.
- Donor services staff have “easy buttons” to update payment methods, change payment schedules and even replace a pledge with a new (hopefully bigger) commitment.
Ask your Client Services representative if you’d like to know more about the Revolution Online pledge features.
