SurveyMonkey Contribute

SurveyMonkey Contribute lets you earn rewards for completing surveys and donates thousands of dollars each week to participating charities. For each survey that you complete, we'll do both of the following:

If you're eligible, you can sign up for a free account and start taking surveys today at

When you sign up, you also get a free BASIC SurveyMonkey account you can use to create your own surveys. Your login details for both accounts are the same.

Your Profile

As part of the sign-up process, we ask you to fill out a profile with questions about your employment status, household income, recent purchases, and other targeting criteria. This allows us to send you surveys from SurveyMonkey Audience customers who are looking for opinions from people with your background.

From your dashboard, we'll occasionally ask you to fill out more of your profile to make sure your information is up to date. To edit your profile, go to My Account and click Edit my profile.

We share your basic profile data with the survey owner. To maintain your privacy, we don't share your name, username, email address, or home address. For more information, please read our Privacy Statement.

Taking Surveys

We'll email you to let you know when a new survey is waiting for you. You can also sign in to your SurveyMonkey Contribute account and click Take a survey from your dashboard. There may not always be surveys available that match your profile.

When you complete a survey, we'll automatically donate to your default charity. To enter the sweepstakes, go to your dashboard and click Click to play now under Play to Win.

If you exit a survey before completing it, responses you entered are not saved and you will not be able to access it again.

Account Settings

To edit your SurveyMonkey Contribute account settings, sign in and click My Account from the upper-right corner of your dashboard. From My Account you can:

  • Edit your default charity—the charity you select from the charities page is saved to your account automatically.
  • Edit your profile.
  • Change your email settings to opt out or unsubscribe from email invitations. You'll still be able to log in to take surveys.
  • Change your email address and password from within SurveyMonkey.
  • Delete your SurveyMonkey Contribute account.
  • Review your donation history and survey taking history.

If you delete your SurveyMonkey Contribute account, your survey history, profile information, and username are permanently deleted. Your SurveyMonkey account is not affected.

Increasing Your Donations

You can install the Contribute Plug-in on an iOS device (US only) to increase your contribution to participating charities from $0.50 to $1.00 each time you take a survey. To get this increase, your Contribute Plug-in must remain installed and have been active within the 24 hour period before completing the Contribute survey.

The Contribute Plug-in enables your iOS device to use our free VPN service that helps to secure your mobile data. In exchange for providing you with this free service, we collect and analyze some of your mobile data that passes through our VPN to gain insights and understand how consumers like you use mobile apps and mobile devices. We may also combine profile data from your Contribute account with your mobile data. Don’t worry — we’re not interested in snooping on what you, as an individual, are doing on your device. We use computer algorithms to analyze your mobile data and produce reports for our customers that only show aggregated data that is de-identified of any personal information. View our App Privacy Policy for more details.

Use of the Contribute Plug-in is subject to the App Terms of Service.

Installing the Contribute Plug-in

To install the plugin:

  1. On your iOS device, go to:
  2. Tap Install Contribute Plug-in.
  3. Tap Install on the install profile screen and confirm by selecting Install Now. You may also need to enter your device’s passcode.
  4. Once the VPN profile has been successfully installed, tap Done in the upper right corner of the VPN profile to return to contribute.

The plugin can only be installed on one iOS device per SurveyMonkey Contribute account, but your increased donation amount applies no matter where you take a survey, as long as you’ve used the device with the plugin installed within the last 24 hours.

Removing the Contribute Plug-in

To remove the Contribute Plug-in, you need to delete the Contribute VPN profile.

To delete the Contribute VPN profile:

  1. Go to Settings in your device.
  2. Select General and then Profiles.
  3. Select Contribute and then Delete Profile.

We stop collecting data on your app usage immediately when you delete the VPN profile. You may continue to contribute the higher donation amount for up to 24 hours afterwards.
