The 2023 JFC Fitness is a fundraising activity to raise money for the various charities that JFC supports through its donations.
How can I support the 2023 Fitness Challenge?
Simply by getting moving! You can walk, run, bike, use your fitness equipment, whatever works best for you personally. You can sign up and you will automatically complete your own fundraising page that you can share with your friends, family, co-workers, anybody who you would like to sponsor you.
Link your fitness device to the Charity Footprints app and it will track your activity for the month of February 2023. Simply do whatever you’d like, wearing your device, and your activity level will be tracked and shown on your fundraising page. There will be some milestones that once you reach them, eMedals will be posted on your page and you’ll be recognized for your efforts.
The system will also keep track of all of the donations received on your page, as well as for the entire event. You can check the leaderboards and see who is raising the most and who is moving the most.
You can also create a team and get others to join you, or join an existing team. Why not get your whole family and you co-workers join you to raise funds for kids?
Your support will help Jewelers for Children and the jewelry industry to reach more children facing challenges through our charity partners.
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.
