DoJiggy-Athon software provides schools and nonprofit organizations a cutting-edge, responsive website for online Athon and peer to peer crowdfunding campaigns, such as Run/Walk/Ride events.
Just like our peer to peer crowdfunding software, our Athon software platform allows individuals and teams to create personal fundraising pages and solicit donations for your organization. Fundraising totals are tracked via fundraising thermometers and leaderboards and prizes for top fundraisers are displayed.
The main difference between our Athon platform and our peer to peer crowdfunding platform is the ability to accept pledges. A fundraising pledge is the promise of a donation that will be paid at a specific point in the future. Often a pledge is processed after a fundraising event or trigger occurs. Pledges are often utilized when participants are running a certain number of laps or miles or bowling a certain number of pins. This makes pledge software a little different than traditional donations software, as donor credit cards must be securely stored for processing at a later time.
Features of DoJiggy-Athon Software
- Personal and team fundraising pages with fundraising thermometers
- Team fundraising area with leaderboards
- When a supporter makes a pledge, they can indicate the maximum amount they’re willing to donate. They will never be charged any more than that, even if the per-unit pledge activity exceeds their limit.
- Take pledges per lap, per mile, per hour, per-anything you define.
- Add unlimited participants and manage your goals and donations from a single dashboard.
- Donors enjoy a simple checkout experience when pledging. They can choose to make an easy per-unit pledge or make a flat donation.
- Credit cards are securely stored when pledges are made. When your Athon ends, the platform automatically charges your donors.
Entering Athon Activity Results
Campaign organizers and participants can easily enter activity results in the Athon system at any point during or after the fundraiser.
A person participating in a walk-a-thon for example would add the number of miles they walked. Results can be entered throughout a campaign and the system will tally the entries. That way, the system can calculate results and charge donors for their pledges based on the total units entered. Results don’t need to be recorded at the same time, which means that your participants can enter them whenever they want. This feature comes in handy if your athon runs for an extended period of time (ie a school readathon or virtual walkathon hosted over a month). Our system even supports multiple units of effort, if your organization needs to track more than one type of effort.
