Charity Effort By Evite, Pledgeling Raises $1M For Nonprofits

Two, Los Angeles area technology companies--Evite and Pledgeling--say that a joint effort, Evite Donations, has raised $1M in donations for thousands of nonprofits over its first year. The tool, available for any Evite event, allows hosts of Evite events to collect donations to their favorite nonprofit, at no cost, with no fee for donations from Evite. The back end of the service is powered by Pledgeling. Pledgeling is led by James Citron; Evite is led by Victor Cho. The two said Pledgeling has more than 10,000 nonprofits in its network.
