ABOUT CCCC'S VIRTUAL WALKATHON FUNDRAISER CAMPAIGN
In lieu of our annual Spring Gala typically held in March of every year, CCCC is excited to host our first Virtual Walkathon Fundraiser! The Center relies heavily on our annual Gala, as it is the sole fundraiser of the year. Unfortunately, we were unable to hold it last year, but we are grateful for your ongoing support and encouragement. Although we cannot support each other in-person, please join us in spirit and energy on this virtual walkathon!
From May 15 to August 1, we invite our supporters to join us in logging 49 miles to celebrate CCCC’s 49 years of service to the community. Run, jog, ride, or walk anytime, anywhere, and log your miles online. Cheer on your fellow supporters, raise money for our children and our centers, and win some fun swag along the way!
Track workouts anywhere & anytime and complete goal.
ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
CHINATOWN COMMUNITY CHILDREN'S CENTER
The Chinatown Community Children's Center (CCCC) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing quality early education and other social services to meet the needs of new immigrant and bilingual/bicultural families in San Francisco. Our mission is to help integrate these families into American society and gain economic stability while maintaining their cultural identity.
All funds raised from the Walkathon will be used to support our center, including the purchase of instructional materials, basic operational supplies, and enrichment activities and experiences for our children.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Charity Footprints?
Charity Footprints is a social enterprise that connects fitness and charitable giving. We empower people just like you, to get fit & give back.
Our Virtual Races allow non-profits to challenge their patrons to run, walk or ride and raise funds just as they would in a fundraising walkathon. The best part - charities save over 45% in event and logistical costs. So, the dollars that you pay to register or fundraise, go farther.
What is the campaign registration fee?
Campaign registration fee is the amount that you'll need to pay to enroll in this virtual race. This fee (less transaction charges) will go to the non-profit running this campaign as a donation.
The registration fee along with the funds raised through your individual fundraising page will enable the non-profit to fund various programs and pursue their organization's mission.
How can I create my fundraising page?
Well, you wouldn't have to create a separate fundraising page. Once you register for this campaign, we'll give you the link to your fundraising page.
While registering for the campaign, select the team you'd like to join or create a new team and invite others to #GetFitGiveBack with you. If you want to join a team (or create your team) after registration, login to the campaign site and you would find a link to edit "My Team" in the menu under your profile in the header.
I am an international donor (non-US), what are my donation charges and tax-deductibility?
All donations are made in US dollars, so the donations may be levied an exchange rate fee via your bank. Donors will want to connect with their bank to determine exactly what that fee may be. Additionally, international donors will need to reach out to a tax professional to discuss if and how tax deductibility will apply to their donation.
Who can sponsor my fundraising efforts?
The short answer is - everyone. The fundraising research shows that the number one reason for people not donating is that they weren't asked to.
That said, there are things you can do to attract people to sponsor you. Adding a picture to your fundraising page, telling potential donors why this cause is so personal to you, sharing your fundraising page on social media, email, and chat groups.
Last, if your employer has a gift matching program, check with the human resources department to support your favorite cause as well.
Who can I contact if I need help?
You can contact us any time if you need help. We love hearing from our users so please don't hesitate to write to us about issues, suggestions, or to just say hi. You can also contact the non-profit administrator directly if you would like.
How do I change or switch my team?
If you want to join a team (or create your team) after registration, login to the campaign site and you would find a link to edit "My Team" in the menu under your profile in the header.
