The If Then Give app allows you to create personalised pledges so that you can customise almost every aspect of the pledge: maximum budget, duration, expiration date, and conditions.
Set the conditions
The pledge builder will guide you through the process of customising your rules and conditions. Note: For some pledges, you will not need to set all parameters to create a valid pledge. For example, an earthquake project only requires that you set a magnitude. You will be able to continue once the minimum parameters have been set - some may require more than others.
Set your budget
There are two ways to set your budget for a pledge: One-off pledges and recurring pledges. One-off pledges will only happen once after your conditions have been met (you can decide the amount) and release the entire amount you configured. Recurring pledges, however, will release a fraction (defined by you) of you total budget each time your condition is met. Recurring pledges will have a maximum limit (set by you) which will remain locked until the pledge is complete (or expires)
Set the duration
The amount you set (either as your one off or maximum recurring) will be locked until the pledge completes or expires. You can set the expiry date of your pledge and any pledge made will have a ‘cool down’ period where you can cancel should you need to (more info can be found here).
In this video tutorial, we will guide you through the pledge builder. We will highlight all the aspects of creating your fully customised pledge, from selecting a cause, setting condition, to define your budget and the duration of your If Then Give pledge.
