What is a Group Target Fundraiser challenge?
The Group Target Fundraiser challenge mode encourages your group to step for a good cause. For a certain amount of steps, distance, or minutes moved by all participants, your organization or another donor commits to donate a specified amount or item(s) to a designated charity organization.
The Group Target Fundraiser requires participants to reach the group challenge goal to unlock the donation. You will also have the option to add up to 3 additional donations that participants can unlock by reaching 25%, 50%, and 75% completion of the challenge goal. Please note that any additional donations you include will be in addition to the donation for 100% completion. For example, if you commit to donate $1,000 for 100% completion + $500 for 75% completion, you are committing to donate up to $1,500 in total donations.
You set a Group Target Fundraiser challenge goal of 1,000 miles to unlock a donation of a new commercial fridge to your local food pantry. When your group reaches the 1,000 mile goal, your donation unlocks!
In addition to reaching 100% of your challenge goal, you also have the option to include extra donations for the group to unlock at 25%, 50%, and 75% of the challenge goal. In this example. you can set up your challenge to unlock a case of canned food at 250 miles, a case of cereal boxes at 500 miles, and a case of bottled water at 750 miles. These extra donations are made in addition to your commercial fridge donation for 100% completion.
