Is ePledge Right for Your Company?
Do you want to move from paper pledge cards to online pledging?
United Way of the Quad Cities Area offers an easy online pledging system, which is customized for your company. We set it up, manage it, and send out all notifications for your campaign.
Also, we give you the log-in information, so you can pull reports, check your campaign’s progress and monitor in real time the outstanding pledges, so you can make quick adjustments to increase the effectiveness of your campaign.
How Does it Work?
One month prior to the campaign kick-off, your United Way representative will meet with you to review the timeline of when you’d like the emails sent to ask employees to pledge and any special customization for your site (e.g., tracking percent participation and/or pledges for special incentives).
Then, around two weeks prior to the campaign, you send us an employee data file with names and email addresses (and any other data you’d like us to customize) along with a welcome letter from your CEO for the home screen.
We’ll set everything up and send you a preview one week prior for you to test. Once you approve, then we’ll be good to go!
If you need additional support during the campaign (e.g., reminder emails, help with reports), we have a member on staff dedicated to helping you answer your questions. After the campaign is over, we’ll close down your site and submit the spreadsheet to your payroll department.
I’m Interested – What’s Next?
Please let your United Way staff person know you’re interested. Then, we’ll sit down with you to discuss the details and develop a plan to get ePledge working for your Workplace Campaign. This ePledge Checklist is a useful tool to help you prepare.
