CONTRIBUTIONS

This year, Pedal With Purpose is using  CrowdRise to coordinate donations. CrowdRise is an online crowd-funding tool that provides a user-friendly interface for managing the overall fundraising campaign, and for each rider to manage their own fundraiser as part of the Pedal With Purpose team. Having all of this functionality in one location will streamline this year's fundraising process.

The fundraising page is located at www.crowdrise.com/o/en/team/pedal-with-purpose-tour-de-tucson-2017/azwater. Instructions for setting up and using your own CrowdRise fundraiser page can be found here.

Offline donations (checks or cash) will be collected at the Pedal With Purpose Team Dinner the night before El Tour (Friday, 11/17/2017) and routed to Water For People through the AZ Water Association. All checks should be made payable to "AZ Water - Water For People". Receipts for riders to issue to their offline donors are included as part of the rider confirmation packet. Information on online and offline donations is available in the CrowdRise instruction document.
