SurveyMonkey Contribute

SurveyMonkey Contribute lets you earn rewards for completing surveys and donates thousands of dollars each week to participating charities. If you're eligible, you can sign up for a free account and start taking surveys today »

For each survey that you complete, we'll do both of the following:

TIP! When you sign up for Contribute, 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.

Filling Out 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. You'll also be able to spin to win as soon as you complete the survey. Or you can 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.

What does it mean to complete a survey?

Some survey creators want to get responses from specific types of survey respondents. These survey creators may ask screening questions at the start of the survey to confirm they are getting the survey respondents they desire. You may not be able to complete a survey and collect a reward if you are disqualified from continuing after answering these screening questions. In that case, you weren’t the type of survey respondent that survey creator was looking for, but don’t worry—we’ll try to help you find another survey.

Increasing Your Donations

You can install the Contribute Plug-in on an iOS or Android 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 you to earn additional rewards when you take surveys. In exchange for this benefit, we collect certain data from your device to gain insights and understand how consumers like you use mobile apps and devices. The device data we collect may include what apps you’ve installed and how they’re used, your mobile device identifiers, notifications you receive, browsing histories, and bookmarks. Device data may contain your personal data. 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.
