ABOUT SOCAL ASSOCIA CARES UNITY IN COMMUNITY CAMPAIGN
You are invited to the SoCal Unity in Community “No Swing” Golf Tournament supporting Associa Cares! That’s right. We are inviting you to NOT golf in support of Associa Cares, our public charity affiliate.
Why are we doing a “No Swing” Golf Tournament in our 10th year for our event? Because more than ever it is important for us to keep everyone safe while also ensuring Associa Cares can continue to meet the needs of families and communities in crisis as a result of natural and man-made disasters. Join us in NOT golfing to ensure your safety and the priority to have as much of your donation as possible go to supporting the mission and work of Associa Cares.
To bring you an engaging virtual experience, we are collaborating with Charity Footprints so you can still participate on a team, each competing against one another by completing various qualifying physical activities. In addition, we will have fun golf-themed competitions you can compete in along the way via the Facebook event page found at: https://www.facebook.com/events/703853526854392/. And last but not least, you will receive great benefits and recognition for this "no swing" event!
Associa Cares helps people get back on their feet as quickly as possible in the wake of natural and man-made disasters by providing direct financial relief to families and communities who have been impacted by such tragedies. Your support will be a part of providing a means of hope to families who have been temporarily displaced or homes have been destroyed as a result of a qualifying disaster.
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.
