NEW FOR 2014: SHARED FUNDRAISING FOR YOUR AGENCY IF YOU BRING A TEAM OF 10+ RIDERS
The 2015 Hazon California Ride has a pilot program open to large teams organized around other 501(c)3 agencies. Teams of 10 or more riders have the option of raising money for Hazon and their agency in equal proportion. After the costs of the ride are paid for, the dollars above that cost will be split 50-50 with Hazon. We are excited about our pilot and the potential it has to bring in new members to the Hazon riding community. Of course, we’ll be interested in your feedback along the way. To confirm that your organization qualifies and for more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
How does it work?
- The team captain from the organization registers for the California Ride & Retreat and creates a team.
- The team captain, with help from your organization and Hazon, recruits 3 or more people affiliated with the institution to participate in the Ride & Retreat.
- Complete our short application (below) for the grant so we can highlight your organization’s project in the Ride materials.
- The participants fundraise for the Ride & Retreat, train for the riding, and then join us for a memorable experience, with the knowledge that they’ve supported both Hazon and their own organization.
Teams of 4 riders receive a base grant of $1,000. For each additional rider over 4, an additional $150 is awarded.
Support from Hazon
Hazon will help you market your California Ride team to your constituency and provide marketing materials to help promote the Ride at your institution.
Each registered participant will receive a personal fundraising page, or s/he can fundraise through a dedicated team website.
Hazon will list all partners online and in the Ride program book, and each institution will be highlighted during the Ride weekend programming.
