Short version: If you don't recognize a charge, search your email, including your spam folder, for "Pledgeling." Please contact us before disputing the charge with your credit / debit card company.
Did you make a donation for someone's birthday party, for Shark Week, or for Puppy Bowl? Pledgeling Foundation is a nonprofit "donor advised fund" that receives donations from a number of sources and re-grants those funds to the donor-designated US nonprofit. The highest volume of donations is from Evite invitations to events like birthday parties, anniversary parties, and fundraisers.
We email tax receipts almost immediately after your donation is processed, so unless there was a typo in your email address, you should have that as proof. Search your mail, including your spam folder, for "Pledgeling" and see if that email rings a bell. Also search your email for recent Evite events you've been invited to. Click the link to the event's web page, and the Activity tab there may show donations, including yours.
If you still don't recognize the charge, email email@example.com with your name and the email addresses you might use when making a donation, and in most cases we can tell you how you made the donation.
Unfortunately, if you contact your credit card card company, that creates a "dispute" that our card processor charges us $15 for. We then have to deduct that from the next monthly donation we make to the charitable organization associated with your donation, which is effectively a "negative donation" caused by you that comes out of other people's donations. So please get in touch with us before disputing a charge through your bank or credit card company.
