Hope club badge

At the end of every week we will hand out the Hope Club Fundraising Badge to individuals who have raised at least $100 US on their personal Fundraising Dashboard.  Display this at your home, in your business, at your club. You will also receive a texture to proudly display in your profile in Second Life or on your Facebook page

************************************************

If you do not see your team listed on the Fundraising Dashboard Page, you may Start A New Team, or Bring Back An Existing Team.  You do not have to be a team captain to do so, however, do not choose “lead the team” if you are not the captain, simply choose “join as a team member”. You can sign up with your Second Life name as well as with your Real Life name to reach out to family and friends.  Simply create two accounts using two email addresses.   No information is ever shared or crossed between the two accounts unless you choose to do so.

If you choose to register on the Fundraising Dashboard with both your Second Life and your Real Life names we can combine those totals for you.    Simply complete the confidential  form below and ask for the two to be combined.  This form is created by and accessible only by our American Cancer Society Staff Partner – Courtney Goodall.. aka  Hopewalker Resident

There are classes offered on how to set up and use the Fundraising Dashboard to increase your fundraising totals. Please check the Relay University class schedule for times.  Your Fundraising Dashboard is easy to set up, easy to personalize and easy to fundraise with.

So get yourself registered under your team on the Fundraising Dashboard site and start sending those emails to your family, friends, or co workers.  Find SL or Real Life Sponsors for our relay and have them pay via  the your Fundraising Dashboard to your personal page.  Put out that coffee can at work, collect the donations and pay them into the  site yourself.  Be creative in your fundraising and you may very well be watching relay next year on your 40 inch samsung tv you rewarded yourself with!

Team Fundraising Club

TEAM FUNDRAISING CLUB

The Team Fundraising Club program rewards team fundraising excellence. Your teams combined US and Linden dollar total  is used to determine which level your team earns each year.  As a token of appreciation, once your team reaches the Rising Star Fundraising Club level ($100 US), your team will be recognized for their first milestone as a member of the Fundraising Club.

When your team reaches the next Fundraising Club level, Bronze, your team name will be recognized as a Bronze team on the Fundraising Club totals page…and as you reach each new level, your team status on the Team Totals page will update. Your team captain will also receive our newly designed Fundraising Club badges which you can use on your SL profile, on facebook, or on twitter to proudly show your teams accomplishments.

All teams who reach the Rising Star or higher Fundraising Club levels will also receive a Fundraising Club sign at the Halfway There Event on May 6. Your team will also receive another at Relay Weekend on the July 15 & 16  which will be displayed at your teams campsite to recognize your team’s efforts and motivate other teams to reach higher levels next year.  The team may take this sign with them when Relay is over and proudly display it throughout the year at your businesses, clubs, or homes to show your success and generate publicity for our Relay event.

 Amounts Are In US $ Dollars

fundraising club swag bags and stars incentitive

New for 2017 is our Star Recognition and Swag Bag Incentive as part of the Team Fundraising Club.

This year you can help your team become a 5 star team.  There are 5 levels at which your team will earn a star.  The star will be added to your team campsite marker on display along the track on the July 15 & 16 Relay weekend.

In addition, as each team reaches one of the 5 levels in the Team Fundraising Club, the captain will submit a list of ACTIVE team member names to the Steering Committee.  It is up to the captain to ensure only ACTIVE team members names are entered.  We go on an honor system and with the assumption a captain would want an active,  participating, helpful  team member to win the 2 swag bags, not a team member who may not have participated in helping the team.  The names are submitted into the draw, and at wrap up in August, one lucky relayer will win a SL Swag Bag full of fantastic items  AND have a Swag Bag mailed to them from the American Cancer Society Relay For Life full of great goodies.

The 5 levels for name submission are:  Silver, Platinum, Sapphire, Ruby and Purple.  At each level the names are entered again into the draw. If your team reaches purple, your name would be in the draw 5 times for example.

********************************************

fundraising club badges

As your team reaches each level on the Fundraising Club, your team captain will receive  corresponding Fundraising Club plaque and texture. You are encouraged to use the texture on your profile, your Facebook page, your twitter, or your team website.  Proudly display yours as a thank you for all you have done.

********************************************

Fundraising Club levels for Relay Weekend are determined as of 8pm SLT Wednesday July 12.

Any teams who meet a new level between 8pm SLT July 12 and closing ceremonies 10am July 16 will be recognized during closing ceremonies.

Teams who reach new fundraising club levels between July 16 and Wrap Up, 10 am SLT August 4, will be recognized during the wrap up ceremony.

Fundraising Dashboard Challenges 2017

Yes!  They are back !! and you can raise those team totals higher again this year by using  your very own,  very cool online Fundraising Dashboard! READ ON & RELAY ON!

The Dashboard Challenge is fun for many reasons, but two of them are 1) We can get the TEAM fundraising started (BEFORE kickoff), outside of SL. 2) it lets us reach outside SL to our family, friends, co-workers and let them join us in our Relay.

What is the Fundraising Dashboard? It’s essentially your team and  your own personal web page for doing real-life fundraising. Donors can pay with credit card or paypal. You can put your personal or team fundraising page in an email, in twitter, on facebook, etc.   You can ask for donations to your team or your avatar, or just the event in general.  You can sign up with your SL Avatar name or your real name, or both. Upload pictures or videos, or tell Why You Relay, and so much more.

To sign up for your Fundraising Dashboard, visit our Relay For Life of Second Life webpage
