How do my friends and family make a donation to my event?
On the home page of the website, friends and family can locate an event by clicking on the "Search" or "Donate" buttons. By typing in the name of the participant, they will be directed to the person's participant center where they may make a donation, and view current funds raised. You may also invite friends and family to make an online contribution to your event by selecting "Send an email" while logged into your participant center. This email includes a template message, containing the link where donors may go to contribute online.

Who acknowledges my contributors?
Every online donation will receive an automated email acknowledgment that can be used for tax purposes. It is also a good idea to send your own personal thank-you to anyone who responds to your request for support.
