Fundraising FAQs

How do I find the URL to my fundraising page?

Be sure to include this link in your outreach for donations!

How do I edit my page and goal?
To edit your page and goal, visit www.ascv.org/challenge and click the profile icon in the upper right corner.  Log in to your account, go to your profile, then scroll down until you see "Fundraising."  Click "Edit Fundraiser" to edit the content, goal, or fundraising URL. We encourage you to customize your page and share your story & inspiration for participating!

How can people join my team?
People can join your team by visiting www.ascv.org/challenge, clicking "Sign Up," and choosing your team name during registration. If someone is interested in fundraising with you but can't attend the race, they can visit the website, click "Become a Fundraiser," and join your team!

Can I fundraise on Facebook?
You can create a Facebook Fundraiser that connects to your page!  When logged into your RunSignUp account, visit your personal fundraiser page, scroll down, and click the "Create your Fundraiser on Facebook!" button.  This will create a fundraiser on your Facebook page that makes it quick and easy for friends and family to donate.  All donations made through the Facebook fundraiser will show up as part of your total on RunSignUp.  You must go through your RunSignUp page to set up a fundraiser that connects; if you accidentally set one up through Facebook instead of RunSignUp, please reach out to development@ascv.org for assistance.

Please note that only personal fundraising pages can connect on Facebook; you will not be able to connect your team fundraising page.

If you prefer not to connect your pages, you can share your link on Facebook and ask folks to visit your Challenge page to donate.

 

Is there a fundraising minimum to participate?
While there is no minimum fundraising amount to participate we hope you will consider asking your friends, family, and colleagues to contribute. The ASCV Challenge, 5K & Family Fun Day is an opportunity to raise autism acceptance, community support, and funds for the ASCV.

Are donations tax-deductible?
Yes, as long as they’re donations made directly to your fundraising page, via checks made out to the “ASCV," or through Facebook. Donors will receive a tax acknowledgment letter from the ASCV via email from RunSignUp, through the mail for a check, or from Facebook directly for a Facebook donation.

Can matching gifts be applied to my fundraising total?
Yes, we will apply matching gifts to your fundraising total as soon as we have the official paperwork and it is approved by your company.

How can I apply cash or checks to my total?
Mail checks to our ASCV office:

ASCV
8730 Stony Point Pkwy, Ste 150
Richmond, VA 23235

Please do not mail cash; reach out to development@ascv.org to arrange delivery. Upon receipt of your cash or check donation, the ASCV will process them and add them to your fundraising page.
