Editing a Fundraiser
To edit your fundraiser, find the fundraiser you would like to manage, and click on the “Edit Fundraiser” button to access your Fundraiser Management Page.
If you are currently viewing donations, or viewing your share options, then you can find your way to the Fundraiser Management page by clicking on the button for “Edit Fundraiser”.
On the fundraiser management page, you can edit your Fundraiser Name, and your Fundraising Goal.
You can turn on or off your goal thermometer, and/or your scrolling list of donors.
Your Fundraiser Page URL can be edited, as well as your Personal Message to Display on Your Fundraiser Page, and your Fundraiser Image can be added, edited or removed here as well.
You can also choose to hide your fundraiser from the public by checking off Hide from Public Lists. While hidden, your fundraiser will still be visable via the direct link. To unhide, simply uncheck the box for Hide from Public Lists and Save the changes.
More details on these features can be found in the “Becoming a Fundraiser” section of “How to Create an Individual Fundraiser or Team Fundraiser.”
Once your edits are made, then you can click on “Save Fundraiser Changes”... and you will receive confirmation that your fundraiser has been updated.
You can then scroll down the page, and go “Back to Fundraisers”, to return to the “My Fundraisers” page.
On the “My Fundraisers” page, you can click on “View Donations”, and this will allow you to see who has donated to your fundraiser.
You can also arrive at this page using the menu buttons to the left of the screen. If you are currently editing your fundraiser, or viewing your share options, then you can find your way to the donation viewing page by clicking on the button for “View Donations”.
On this page will be useful if you are planning on sending out personalized thank you messages to all of the donors to your fundraiser.
Please note, a general thank you message is usually sent out by the race. The default email will say “Thank you for your donation!”; but the race is allowed to edit and add to this message. For more information on what the race’s standard donation confirmation email says, please contact them directly, by going to the Race Page, scrolling down to the Race Contact Info section, and filling out the Questions form.
Sharing Your Fundraiser
On the “My Fundraisers” page, you can click on the “Fundraiser URL”, open up the “Manage Fundraiser” options, and click on “Links/Sharing”, in order to find your fundraiser sharing options.
You can also arrive at this page using the menu buttons to the left of the screen. If you are currently editing the fundraiser, or viewing donations, then you can simply click on the “Links/Sharing” button, and this will allow you to view the Fundraiser Sharing Options page.
Here you will find your Fundraiser URL, which you can copy and share with people who are interested in donating to your fundraiser.
You can click “Send Email”, to send out an email to your contacts, requesting that they help support your fundraiser.
And if you have a website that you would like to embed a widget for your fundraiser into, then copy the code that is supplied here, and paste it into any section of your website that allows HTML code.
Deleting Your Fundraiser
In order to delete a fundraiser, you will need to contact the race directly.
You can reach them by going to the Race Contact Info section of the race page and filling out the Questions form, or, if you are already registered, you can use the email listed at the bottom of your registration confirmation email.
