FAQ


What is ITRIFORGOOD™?

ITRIFORGOOD™ is a community driven online fundraising platform committed to helping endurance athletes of all abilities raise money and awareness for their favorite non-profit organizations.

How is ITRIFORGOOD™ different from other online fundraising platforms?

We GIVE 100% of what each athletes raises, to their chosen non-profit!

We remove the typical barriers & limitations associated with racing to fundraise. ITRIFORGOOD™ athletes can use their participation in any endurance event, choose any IRS approved 501(c)3 as the beneficiary of their fundraising efforts & select any amount as a fundraising goal.  We provide custom fundraising pages that accept and track online donations securely, share the athlete's fundraising story and enable social media sharing to generate more awareness and support.

Last but certainly not least, we are different from other online fundraising platforms because we too are a non-profit.  ITRIFORGOOD Foundation (ITRIFORGOOD™) is an IRS approved 501(c)3 charitable organization, based in Charlotte, North Carolina (FEIN 46-2398004).

What is the cost to register?

$19.95 is the registration fee for each fundraising campaign that an ITRIFORGOOD™ athlete participates in.


Why is there a registration fee?

ITRIFORGOOD™ absorbs all credit card transaction fees during your fundraising and ensures that 100% of those funds, get delivered to your chosen non-profit. To help ITRIFORGOOD™ sustain a secure online fundraising platform and maintain those higher standards of GOOD giving, $19.95 is due for each fundraising campaign that an ITRIFORGOOD™ athlete participates in. Payment is not due until an event is added to initiate fundraising.


What credit cards are accepted?

ITRIFORGOOD™ utilizes PayPal for cc processing.

PayPal accepts payments from 193 countries via the following cards:

  • Bankcard
  • Visa
  • Switch
  • Discover
  • PayPal Express Checkout
  • American Express
  • Solo
  • MasterCard

Is there a deadline for registering as an ITRIFORGOOD™ athlete?

We think it’s a GOOD idea to start your fundraising with plenty of time before race day. A minimum of a few weeks prior to the date of your event is probably as close as you would want to cut it.


Who can I fundraise for?

Registered ITRIFORGOOD™ athletes can choose any IRS approved 501(c)3 charitable organization as their fundraising recipient.


Are donations made by my donors tax deductible?

Yes! ITRIFORGOOD™ is an IRS approved 501(c)3 charitable organization. Every donation receives a confirmation email with a detailed receipt.


How will ITRIFORGOOD™ know where to send the check for my non-profit?

Checks are delivered to the headquarters of the non-profit recipient as listed with the IRS.


When will the funds I raise be delivered to my chosen non-profit recipient?

Your ITRIFORGOOD™ athlete page remains active for one week following your event in order to capture any final donations once you’ve let everyone know about your accomplishment. ITRIFORGOOD™ has a quarterly payout schedule. A check is sent to your non-profit by the end of the quarter in which your event occurs.


Can I fundraise for more than one organization?

Each race/event is a fundraising opportunity for one non-profit recipient. There are no limits to the number of events & fundraising campaigns that an athlete can participate in.


How will I know that the funds were sent to my chosen non-profit recipient?

You and your non-profit recipient will both receive a letter from ITRIFORGOOD™ regarding the details of your fundraising and GOOD efforts.

How do I know when someone makes a donation through my athlete page?

You will receive notification of donations via email, which you can opt out of.  You can also view donations in your athlete dashboard under the "Donations" tab.


Why aren't some of my donors listed in the donor scroller?
