Creating Your Contribute Account

Signing Up for Contribute

If you’re eligible, you can sign up for a free Contribute account and start taking surveys today.

When you sign up for Contribute, you also get a SurveyMonkey account (our free plan) you can use to create your own surveys. The username and password are the same for both accounts.

Your Profile

As part of the sign-up process, you'll fill out a profile with general questions about you and your lifestyle. This profile info helps ensure you’ll take surveys relevant to you, your background, and other targeting criteria that SurveyMonkey Audience customers are looking for.

To update or edit your profile:

  1. Log in to your Contribute account.
  2. In the upper-right corner, click My Account.
  3. Click Edit my profile.
  4. Select Edit your answer to update any existing profile info or Tell us more about you to complete more profile questions.

We share basic demographic info in survey results. To maintain your privacy, we never share your name, username, email address, or home address. For more information, please read our Privacy Statement.

Taking Surveys

Finding Surveys

To take a survey, you can log into your Contribute account and click Take a survey from your dashboard, like you can see in the image at the top of this article.

We sometimes send you an email or text inviting you to take surveys, if you’re subscribed for these notifications. You can update your Notification Settings at any time.

There may not always be surveys available that match your profile, but don’t worry—we’ll have more surveys for you to take soon.

Completing Surveys

When you complete a survey, we’ll automatically donate to your default charity.

You’ll also gain a chance to spin the wheel to the win the sweepstake prize. You can go to your dashboard and Play to Win to see if you have any spins.

In order to donate to your default charity and Play to Win you must complete the survey. Completing the survey means that you answer all required questions and click Done on the last page of the survey.

Some surveys may have screening questions at the start of the survey to ensure survey creators are getting the respondent data they need. You may not complete the survey and collect a reward if you are disqualified by the screening questions.

If you exit a survey before completing it, responses you entered are not saved and you won't be able to access the same survey again.

Editing Your Account Settings

To get to your account settings, click My Account in the upper-right corner of your dashboard. Click on the setting you wish to update.
