Additional Details

A fundraising event on October 2nd, 2021.

We are planning to host a ride or walk/run event to celebrate our 25th anniversary and raise money.

We already have the date and initial plans done.

I would like help with some of the fundraising aspects, especially technology for the participants to manage pledges and sign-ups. Knowledge of web-based management services for fundraising like this would be helpful.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a preliminary list of participants, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have our details and goals planned, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $3,002 , allowing us to pursue more cases and clients

It will connect us with potential and existing large donors as well as fund raise.
