How Can I Run a Pledge Experience (A-thon) but Take Only One-Time Donations?

Discover the differences between an a-thon and crowdfunding using RallyUp’s team fundraising options.

With a RallyUp fundraiser, the term “pledge” can mean several different things. People can “pledge” with a one-time donation, a recurring donation, or a per-unit-of-activity donation. There are a couple of options for running a pledge experience, depending on the type of donations you want to include in your fundraiser.

Two pledge experience types

  • A-thon – per-unit-of-activity donations as well as one-time donations
  • Crowdfunding – one-time donations and recurring donations

If you are running a jog-a-thon, spell-a-thon, or another similar type of fundraiser with participants but you only want to accept one-time donations, you will want to choose a crowdfunding experience with the team fundraising enabled. This will allow people to join the experience to help raise funds, but the donations will be immediate and won’t depend upon the participants' activity results.
