      7. Select the # of Installments field. Manually type the expected number of installments or select the up arrow button to increase the number of installments. The Ending Date field will adjust according to the number of installments you enter.                                                                         

      8. Choose the Distribute Unpaid button. DonorPro will calculate equal payments based on the frequency selected and the total pledge amount entered.                                                                   

      9. Select a Reminder either 1-20 days in advance of the installment due date, on the day the installment is due or choose not to be reminded.

If the donor has a credit card on file, you can choose to use an existing card or add a new one.                 

      11. Follow the same steps as listed in the Entering a Credit Card Donation section, above.

      NOTE: At this point in entering the pledge donation, the credit card is being verified as a valid card and the credit card is being entered into DonorPro Merchant Services for future processing of the installment payments on this pledge.                                                              

      Upon returning to DonorPro, you will see the last four digits of the credit card and the Card Type.

      2. Finish entering the pledge as you typically would and select Save. You have successfully created
