Is there a fundraising minimum? What’s a good fundraising goal?

While there is no fundraising minimum, we strongly encourage all registered participants set a fundraising goal of at least $250.

How do I create a fundraising page?

A personal fundraising page is created automatically for you when you register to participate, whether you register as an individual, team member or team captain. Visit your Participant Center to customize your fundraising page with a unique name or URL, tell your story, set a fundraising goal, send emails and updates to friends and family, and collect donations online.

Can donations be made by check?

My supporter needs a tax-receipt letter. How do I get one?

A tax receipt is automatically generated for supporters who give online through your personal fundraising page. For gifts made by cash or check, donors must provide their complete name (first and last names) and mailing address. We will mail them a letter and tax receipt when their gift has been processed.

How are teams created?

Anyone can create a team by selecting that option on the registration process. Then simply choose a team captain who will manage the fundraising page, recruit team members, set a fundraising goal and designate the area of the hospital the team will support. It’s important to stay in touch with team members and encourage them to reach the team’s fundraising goal.
