Entering Cash/Checks

There are no fees on cash/checks. You are able to add all cash/check donations for free.

This will help you track all donations as you can add a cash/check donation directly to an existing participant or your main campaign (e.g. a check from a business sponsorship).

As a reminder, 99Pledges is Free to use. The only fee is the credit card transaction fee charged by the credit card companies.

To enter cash/check donations:

  1. Log into your Admin account at

  2. Go to the Donations tab:

3. Click "Add Cash/Check Donation":

4. Choose to enter a donation for either the Main Campaign or a Participant:

5. You can then search for a participant by name, enter in the donation amount, and donor info. If an email address is entered they will receive a thank you email. **Please note that you do have the option of selecting for the donation to appear as anonymous.

All cash/check donations will be indicated by a red dollar to the right of the amount on the donations tab:

Fundraiser Admins may Reassign or Delete a cash/check donation. If an incorrect amount for a cash/check is entered-it can be deleted and a new entry made. You can reassign or delete a cash/check donation by hovering over the transaction, clicking the pencil and then selecting the action:

We understand accepting cash/checks is another option to give donors, but we recommend strongly encouraging donors to first use the platform to make a donation. There are many benefits to having all donors make their donation through 99Pledges:

  • Donors give 25% more online than through cash/check (well above the ~3% processing fees charged by PayPal/Visa/MC/Amex)

  • Donors can see goals and standings which motivates them to donate more (potentially even multiple times)

  • Donors can easily spread the word through the one-click sharing buttons

  • And finally, the biggest benefit we'd say, it's a lot easier on you (as the Admins) to manage and track
