How Does the Fundraising Challenge Work?

Now through Thanksgiving Day, compete in the Turkey Trot Fundraising Challenge to raise funds for Caritas of Austin through our online fundraising tools. All funds raised support Caritas of Austin and have a direct impact on the local community by helping individuals and families achieve self-sufficiency through housing, food, education, and employment services.

By participating through donations or fundraising you can earn all kinds of awesome incentives from ThunderCloud Subs and our Fundraising Challenge partners.  (Incentive info coming soon)

After signing up as a fundraiser, you’ll be given a personal fundraising page which you can share with your friends, family members, and co-workers online. They’ll have the option to donate directly to your fundraising efforts securely online without you having to manage any donations yourself. It’s quick, easy and everyone can get involved.

Milestones and Incentives

Incentives are awarded to donors and fundraisers based on the highest Fundraising Milestone level  a participant (or team) reaches by the end of the Fundraising Challenge on Thanksgiving Day, November 23 2017.

Any participant (donor or fundraiser) is eligible for Fundraising Milestone incentives.  In addition, groups of three or more participants can form teams and compete for additional Team Fundraising Milestone incentives.

Note: At most, a participant can earn a single Fundraising Milestone incentive (determined by the highest milestone reached) and a Team Fundraising Milestone incentive (if the participant is a team member) Team Fundraising Milestone incentives will be awarded to Team Captains and distributed to the team as they see fit.

Receiving Incentives:  You can pick up your incentives in January at the ThunderCloud Subs office @ 1102 W 6th St, Austin Tx 78703. Fundraisers who earn an incentive will be notified in December with details on how to pickup.
