We have the perfect online resource for you if you want to hold a fundraising event such as a walk-a-thon. Typically walk-a-thons and other events are run manually on a local basis. Choose-a-thon opens up the entire world for potential donors. Here are the easy steps involved with getting your walk a thon or other fundraising event started.
Plan Your Fundraising Event.
Determine what type of fundraiser event you will be holding. Remember, Choose-a-thon does not plan your walk-a-thon or other event. It simply offers an online resource for administrative and marketing functions.
Choose the dates for your fundraiser event and write down a list of participants you would like to invite to actually participate in your fundraiser.
