Provide personal fundraising pages to your runners
New service makes your charity program less work and more effective
Cool Running is introducing a new service to enable your runners to create their own online fundraising page. This service will help more runners raise more money and take the hassle out of the fundraising process.
The service will enable runners to quickly and easily set up an online fundraising page that can be personalized with their own picture, text message, fundraising goal and page title. It enables them to send out emails to family and friends and enables them to make secure online donations with a credit card that are automatically processed and sent to the charity. Click here to see a sample page: http://www.justgiving.com/PFP/pages/default.asp?id=CGG/1036
You can offer this capability to your runners directly as a way to help them raise more funds for charity more easily. You can also enable your "official" charities to offer the service to their supporters participating in your event and is a great way to unite more charity runners around your event.
The service can be set up to enable runners to raise funds only for charities designated by you or for any charity (the service includes a vetting process to ensure that organizations nominated by runners have a 501c3 tax status).
We are working with Justgiving, an established leader in online event based fund raising, to provide this proven and award winning service. Earlier this year, the service was used to help over 3,000 runners of the London Marathon raise in excess of $2 million dollars for hundreds of charities.
The service has no set up fees for you, your runners or the charities, there is only a small processing fee when donations are actually made so there is no risk.
This personal fundraising service can help your event to raise more funds for charity, reduce effort associated with managing your charity program, will help charities get more participants for your event and can provide some great public relations opportunities.
How to get started:
Cool Running will be launching the service with a small number of events early this fall.
