Pledjar

Sadaqah made simple

Everyone would love to give a little more Sadaqah everyday, but without the extra commitments. With our Pledjar app, you can now round-up pennies from your purchases and donate them to your chosen charity. 

Give from a loved one

Some of us wouldn't be where we are today if it wasn't for sacrifices from our friends and family. So why not dedicate giving a few pennies a day in sadaqah to a loved one so they can share the blessings.

Some quick answers to our most asked questions.

Pledjar does not store any of your personal banking information or have access to your account. We have partnered with TrueLayer, an FCA regulated and GDPR compliant trusted provider, to display a real-time breakdown of your round-ups on your app screen.

No, we do not charge the customer any admin fees. The full amount of your donation reaches our direct charity partners so that they can claim the maximum Gift Aid. At the end of the month, we charge charities a 10% transaction fee, which goes towards ensuring compliance and developing the app to help charities benefit even more. Donations administered by CAF will incur a 2% (from the 10%) fee to cover their costs. 

Yes, after installing the app, you’ll be asked to fill in the Gift Aid declaration form. This will automatically be added to your donations each time, helping our direct charity partners claim what they are entitled to. It is your responsibility to amend the declaration if your circumstances change.

Open Banking is a relatively new financial services technology, which connects the user’s bank account to an app, using a highly secure Application Programming Interface (API). Many other apps which use the round-up model for investment purposes use Open Banking, and it is extremely secure. We are an agent of Truelayer, who provide the live Open Banking feed.

You can simply search by name or category for charities who have signed up through our easy to use charity directory. More and more charities are registering with us everyday and, once they do, you’ll be able to select them as your new favourite.
