# Pledge Calculation

A list of the different frequencies during which gifts can be pledged.

## How are pledges calculated?

- Once a week
- This frequency calculates the pledge total based on the number of Sundays between the start date and stop date. So a range as short as eight days that includes two Sundays would be calculated as two pledges.
- Every two weeks
- This frequency calculates one pledge occurrence for every other Sunday, starting with the first Sunday in between the start date and stop date. So a range as short as fifteen days that begins on a Sunday would be calculated as two pledges.
- Once a month
- This frequency calculates a pledge for each month. So a range as short as two days—if it spans two months—would be calculated as two pledges.
- Twice a month
- This frequency calculates two pledges for each month. So a range as short as two days—if it spans two months—would be calculated as four pledges.
- Quarterly
- This frequency calculates a pledge for each quarter. So a range as short as two days—if it spans two quarters—would be calculated as two pledges.
- Annually
- This frequency calculates a pledge for each year. So a range as short as two days—if it spans two years—would be calculated as two pledges.
