Start a Read-a-thon with 99Pledges

Read-a-thons are super simple. Students will ask friends and family for sponsors online for the number of minutes they read over a certain period (they choose the books). No event to organize or junk to sell. SUPER EASY.Β 

Here's how SIMPLE it is:

  • Parents receive a link to their student's page via email - ZERO parent set-up which leads to more donations!

  • They simply share that link via email, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

  • Students obtain donations for minutes read over 2-3 weeks

  • You enter the results and we send you a check the next day

Use 99Pledges for FREE - you only cover the standard credit card processing fee of 3.49% + 49 cents per transaction and that's it!

We help you supercharge your fundraiser:

  • Substantially increase the amount you raise - reach grandma in Florida easily.

  • Eliminate the work for you and your parents - stop chasing down checks and pledge forms.

  • Accept, track, and report on online, cash, and check donations.

  • We do all the set-up for you. We can go live today.

**Please Note: The pricing on the video above is outdated. We no longer charge 10% fee, we are now a Free platform. Only the credit card fee applies. On average, schools keep 96-98% of funds raised.
