I’m a small/new organization. Is it worth it for me to participate?
Absolutely. Challenges are designed to help your organization leverage your network, gain awareness and learn more about social fundraising. We encourage charities of all sizes to participate.
We also encourage checking the Challenge you’re interested in to see if there are Weekly Bonus Challenges. Weekly Bonus Challenges will include a variety of rules and prizes so organizations of all sizes have opportunities to win something. If you are worried you might not be able to compete for one of the grand prizes, we recommend picking a Bonus Challenge or two to rally your supporters which will still allow you the option to take home additional funds.
We also provide all organizations with plenty of resources to successfully run a Challenge campaign and we’re always ready to answer your questions along the way.
How do I find out about future Challenges?
Since all Challenges are different, recruitment for each one is different.
Challenges can be focused on a certain cause space, Challenge sponsors may preselect a group of charities to participate, or the application may be open to any eligible organization. We recommend claiming your organization’s account on our site by following These Quick Steps. Make sure you opt in to receive CrowdRise emails and you’ll be on our list for future email updates.
You can also Contact Us at any time to hear more about upcoming Challenges that may fit your organization.
Can I see some examples of previous Challenges?
Challenges come in all shapes and sizes. Some are focused on a certain cause space, others are focused on organizations in a certain region, others are a mix of everything. Please note that you don’t need to be able to raise a ton of money or have the biggest following ever in order to participate or be successful in a Challenge.
