Why Sign Up for a Troop Plan?
“We make a living by what we get.
We make a life by what we give.”
- Winston S. Churchill
How does it work?
When you sign up for a Troop Plan, you are automating your contribution to the local needs we source each week. So if you want to contribute $5 a week, you only need to sign up once and then we do the rest to ensure your money goes to the local cause every week.
Each week you’ll get a text telling you about the local need we’re working on. At the end of the week, you’ll get an update on how we fulfilled the need and what the total impact was. If you’re the type of person who really wants to know the details, we take pictures and videos telling you exactly how we’re creating impact in your area.
You can change your Troop Plan value or cancel at anytime by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. (wait… email, what? Yes, email, but just for now). We’re building out a login portal for you to manage your Troop Plan and to keep track of your local giving.
What’s the fee?
Troop will charge a 5% fee on all Troop Plan contributions. This fee covers the cost of payment processing (2.9%) and the service of finding and fulfilling the local needs.
Why wouldn’t I just donate directly to a charity?
First things first, you should donate directly to charities that address causes that are important to you! Troop is different because we allow you to contribute to a number of different charities and causes that will positively impact your community. So you don’t need to limit your caring capacity to one cause when it comes to your neighbourhood. We address immediate, local needs. We tell you what we’re working on each week and we update you at the end of the week about the impact you’ve had.
