We’re crowd-sourcing a better world

The world is better when like-minded people work together. With this in mind, we’ve set out to transform charitable giving by creating a tool that makes it easier and more convenient for people to donate.

You can read more about how Pledjar works in the FAQs section, but rest assured that we have worked with experts from across all sectors of industry to ensure that Pledjar is a secure and user-friendly charity app.

Pledjar values

GROUND-BREAKING

Pledjar is the first app of its kind to use Open Banking to allow users to pass on their ‘spare change’ to aid the tremendous work that so many charities do.

And this is just the beginning. We are working on more innovations that will bring fresh thinking and help to drive real change in the charity sector.

SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE

As an enterprise with a strong social conscience we are committed to putting the needs of charities first. That’s why our 10% admin fee is charged after passing on 100% of donations, enabling them to claim maximum Gift Aid.

We are also committed to reducing admin fees as our user base grows. And finally, we are regulated by the FCA, ensuring security for donors and charities alike.

FORWARD LOOKING

Our expert team isn’t just here to reflect change, we are committed to driving change too.

So whilst we are striving to keep improving our processes and our technology to help reduce admin fees, we are also looking for other ways to help charities achieve more.

“At the heart of our organization lies a thirst to encourage people to pledge their spare change, thereby enabling charities to achieve more positive change in the world”

Meet the team

As you might expect, the management team at Pledjar is packed with eggheads, computer geeks, and philanthropists who have experience in fintech, financial services, digital innovation, and the charity sectors.

We also have board members who are leading authorities on matters relating to law, regulation and online security, but ultimately Pledjar is a product of collaboration. It’s taken a multi-disciplinary team two years to design and build a product that works for everyone.
