Are you a fundraiser? Read these FAQs to learn more

 

1. I’m a registered rider. Am I automatically set up to fundraise?

Yes, a fundraising page was automatically created for you when you registered.

You should have received the link to your page in your confirmation email. You can also visit this page and login at the top right-hand corner.

 

2. When do I need to reach my fundraising minimum of $150?

All riders are committed to a fundraising minimum of $150. Unless you took care of this during registration and added the $150 to your check out, you will need to reach this amount BEFORE you ride on 8/12/17. You are welcome to pay the difference on your page to fulfil your minimum. If you do not reach the minimum, we will charge your card on ride day. But you will save time during rider check-in if you take care of this in advance. 

 

3. How do I invite friends to donate to my campaign?

Copy and paste the link to your fundraising page into emails and social media posts to share with your friends and family. Tell them about your ride and why hunger is important to you. They will be thrilled to help you reach your goal. 

 

4. I’d prefer to fundraise offline. Can I donate by check?

If you receive any donation checks, please have them made out to the Vermont Foodbank. Please make sure you provide your name in the memo line of the check and mention in your note that you are a Harpoon Point to Point rider when you mail in any checks. 

All pledge checks should be mailed to:

The Vermont Foodbank
