Can we use 10 Minute Fundraiser for our Jog-A-Thon?

Absolutely. 10 Minute Fundraiser is an extremely efficient way for kids to get donations for their Jog-A-Thons.

We also have the ability for donors to donate to the child if you are running a traditional envelop packet Jog-A-Thon fundraiser. If the child has someone who wants to donate via credit or debit card, the donor can text to pay using our technology.

Why doesn't 10 Minute Fundraiser use emails?

Most families do not want to give away emails to a 3rd party. Emails are often entered incorrectly. Emails catch spam filters and frequently fail to reach the potentional donor. Emails aren’t checked immediately, or get deleted quickly. Typically only 20% of emails are opened. Emails go out repeatedly for weeks with typical crowdfunding websites. All of this turns off a lot of donors, and results in fewer donations. So, along with the strong positives associated with our texting system, this is why we focus on areas that provide the best results.

What type of credit and debit cards are accepted?
