Fundraising Questions

 

HOW DO I FUNDRAISE?

No, fundraising is not required to participate in K2K. It is important to note even the smallest amount of fundraising goes a long way to helping Dance Marathon achieve its mission for the kids. Events such as K2K are costly to produce and important to host a great event while making a large impact in our mission.

 

WHAT IS THE FUNDRAISING DEADLINE?

The fundraising deadline will be Monday, October 19, 2020.

 

HOW DOES SOMEONE MAKE AN ONLINE DONATION?

If you send them an email requesting a donation they will simply click the link on the email and will be directed to the donation portal. Another way is to click on the orange Donate button in the upper right hand corner and search for the participant you wish to donate to. Select Quick Donate to start the donation process or View Profile to learn more about them!

 

HOW DOES SOMEONE MAKE A CHECK DONATION?

Please write the full name of the participant you wish to donate to in the memo line and mail your check made payable to Kinnick to Kinnick at the address: 425 E. Oakdale Blvd. Suite 101, Coralville, IA, 52241

 

WHAT DO I DO IF A DONOR HANDS ME A CHECK?

Please mail the check to 425 E Oakdale Blvd. Suite 101, Coralville, IA 52241. Also, be sure that your participant name is included in the memo line, so that we may appropriately apply the donation to your ride. If the donor made the check out to your name, you are able to sign the check over to Kinnick to Kinnick prior to mailing it in by writing "Pay to the order of Kinnick to Kinnick" in the endorsement area on the back of the check along with your signature.

 

HOW DOES KINNICK TO KINNICK HANDLE TAX ACKNOWLEDGEMENT RECEIPTS FOR CASH DONATIONS?

If you would like a tax acknowledgement receipt, it is always best to make a credit card or check donation. Kinnick to Kinnick cannot issue tax acknowledgement receipts for cash donations that are not brought directly to the Kinnick to Kinnick office by the actual donor. Please do not send cash through the mail. If you are a participant who has received a cash donation, there are two options for applying the cash donation to your ride. In the first instance, you may keep the cash and make an online credit card donation to yourself for the same amount. Please note, however, that if you use this option, you will become the official donor and you will receive a tax acknowledgement receipt at the email address that you provide. Please do not substitute the cash donor’s name or address for your own when you make the credit card donation on your card. Alternatively, you may bring the cash donation to our office. In this scenario, Kinnick to Kinnick still cannot issue a tax acknowledgement receipt to the cash donor who is not present, but you can pick up a blank cash donation receipt that you can provide to your donor to fill out for his/her own record keeping. Please note, Kinnick to Kinnick will not complete this receipt form for you as it must be completed by the donor.

 

IS MY DONATION TAX DEDUCTIBLE AND IF SO, WHEN WILL I RECEIVE A TAX RECEIPT?

All donations are 100% tax deductible in the United States, unless the donor received goods and/or services in exchange for all or a portion of his/her donation, such as through an auction or other fundraiser. For foreign donors, please refer to your local tax laws to determine if your donation to Kinnick to Kinnick is tax deductible. All credit card donors will immediately receive a tax acknowledgement letter via email. All check donors will receive a tax acknowledgement letter snail mail after the check is received by Kinnick to Kinnick.

Yes, Kinnick to Kinnick is a 501(c)(3). If you would like more information about our Tax ID# or non-profit status, please contact us at Anna@cadencesports.com.
