We encourage our riders to fundraise, but if you prefer to pay your own way, that works too! Contributions to the ride by your friends and acquaintances are fully tax-deductible. Your own contributions are tax deductible, except for the portion that pays for the costs of the ride, such as food and lodging (which usually come out to around $850)
Fundraising Page Instructions
To set up a personal fundraising page, follow these steps:
1. Go to https://www.mightycause.com/event/Californiadreamride and click 'Join this event'
2. Sign up or log into your existing account, then click 'Start a fundraiser'
3. Customize your page and set your fundraising goal. Consider setting a higher fundraising goal than what you actually need to raise: sometimes a higher goal will prompt bigger donations. Don't forget to click 'Publish' once you're done making changes!
Once your fundraising page is set up, share it on social media and check out the links below to reach your goal!
