FAQ

1.  Where do I find the link to my Personal Fundraising Page?

Great question!!!  The link to your page is provided:

  • In your Registration Confirmation email.
  • On the home page of your account, after you log in
  • Find your page in the list of fundraisers by selecting the “Donate to an Individual” on the Donate page, your name is listed alphabetically by first name.  This will take you to your page.

A link looks something like this:  http://bowl4animalrescue.org/participantpage....

2.  How can I send donors to my Personal Fundraising Page?

  • You can copy the URL address and paste it wherever you want to share it:in the body of an email, into a post on FB, anywhere!
  • You can send your donors to the Donate page and tell them to look your name up by selecting the “Donate to an Individual”, your name is listed alphabetically by first name, but you want to make it easy for people you ask to donate. Consider that every click you spare them, the closer they are to just donating!  So, it is best to send them a direct link to your page.
  • You can also use the Social Share tools on your Personal Fundraising Page, located in the upper right-hand corner. These tools make it easy to share on FB and other places!

To Copy and Paste: To copy your link, first highlight the link by dragging your cursor over it, go to Edit at the top of your screen and choose Copy, then go to where you want to include the link and put your cursor there, go back to Edit and choose Paste. It's that easy!

3.  Can we obtain receipts for donations?

Yes

Online Donations: After completing an online donation both a thank you email is sent to the donor from the Bowl4AnimalRescue.org website and a Paypal receipt from the organization receiving the donation. This should be used for tax purposes.

Offline Donations: Via the Pledge Collection Form, donations over $10 accompanied by a name and address will receive a thank-you letter from the organization receiving the donation. This should be used for tax purposes.

6.  If I do not have a PayPal account, can I just pay with a Credit Card?

Yes.  You will first have the option to use PayPal, or set up a new PayPal account.  If you prefer, skip to the next option to pay with a Debit or Credit Card.

7.  Can I take my off-line cash donations on-line, adding them to my Personal Fundraising Page?

Yes.  To do so, you would simply use your own credit card to make a donation to your page, keeping the cash to pay off your credit card when the bill arrives.
