Fundraising Essentials

We encourage our riders to fundraise, but if you prefer to pay your own way, that works too! Contributions to the Dream Ride Challenge  are fully tax-deductible.


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!
