dollarFormat takes a number string and formats is putting the $ , and . in the number.

try using number format instead.

UPDATE Donations
    Set Amount = #numberFormat(rereplace(form.amount,"(\$)|(,)","","all"), "9999999.00")#
    WHERE pledgeID = #getPledge.pledgeID# AND donationID = #getDonations.DOnationID#
I've had better luck with:

Set Amount = <cfqueryparam value="#numberFormat(REReplace(form.amount,"[^0-9.]","","all"), "9999999.00")#" CFSQLType="CF_SQL_DECIMAL" />
WHERE pledgeID = <cfqueryparam value="#getPledge.pledgeID#" CFSQLType="CF_SQL_INTEGER" />
AND donationID = <cfqueryparam value="#getDonations.DOnationID#" CFSQLType="CF_SQL_INTEGER" />

But rob's answer is essentially what you'll want to do.
