Can I set up an Online Fundraising Page?
When you register for the Canuck Place Adventure Race, you will automatically create your own fundraising page. Your page can be customized with photos, video and information about why you support Canuck Place. It’s an easy way to share your fundraising goals online, encourage donations, and raise awareness.
Do I have to fundraise?
The 2015 Canuck Place Adventure Race is a fundraising event. Funds raised at this event support Canuck Place Children’s Hospice in providing critical clinical care and programs for BC’s children with life-threatening illnesses and the families who love them. Therefore, we ask that all participants do their best to reach the $1,000 goal. Canuck Place supports all participants in reaching their fundraising goals. A weekly newsletter to participants includes tips for fundraising, proper nutrition, training, and social media to help you achieve your goals. However, if the goal is not met, participants will not be charged a penalty. It may help to see what fun things some #CPCHAdventureRace teams have done in the past: Team Sunshine Racing for a Good Cause.
What if I don’t raise the minimum amount?
With our fundraising tips and your enthusiasm we are confident you will have all the tools you need to successfully reach (and surpass!) your fundraising goal. Keep an eye on our Participant Newsletters for great tips.
What if some of my supporters want to give me cash or cheque donations?
While donating online is quick and easy, some of your supporters may wish to give you cash or cheque donations. Keep track of these donations with our pledge form and make sure you capture all of your donor’s information so we can issue a tax receipt.
How do I add cash and cheque donations to my online total?
Log into your Participant Centre and click “Enter Offline Donations”. This will allow you to add any cash or cheque donations to your grand total so you can keep track of your progress.
How do I submit my cash and cheque donations to Canuck Place?
If you collect cash and cheque donations, you can submit them on Race Day or to the Hospice at 1690 Matthews Ave, Vancouver BC V6J 2T2 along with a completed pledge form. Please ensure you have complete donation amounts, names, addresses and telephone numbers for donors. Tax receipts will be issued under the Canada Revenue Agency Guidelines.
