Frequently Asked Question

How do I calculate my pledge if I’m unemployed?


Some circumstances change the amount of your giving pledge, such as while you are unemployed.

A giving pledge does not require you to donate while you aren’t earning any income (even if you are receiving some form of assistance). However, in the interests of all of our members giving what they can, we feel that it's within the spirit of the to donate something regularly if they can and it is therefore conventional for people who are unemployed to give at least 1% of their spending money

We define spending money as money received for the purpose of spending on items such as food, rent, travel, or personal items.
