2019 Fundraising Challenge
We are super excited to launch our second annual Fundraising Challenge!! This year's goal is to raise $10,000 for the upcoming summer program (July 2019). We are challenging all Team and Meresera to take part of this initiative, to ensure this year's program is both engaging and impactful for all who journey to Captivenia. We acknowledge your magnaminity in helping us to meet this fundraising goal, which allows us to keep Captivenia registration fees as conservative as possible for everyone! Thank you!!
So what’s a 'Fundraising Challenge?'
Team & Meresera are invited to create a personal fundraising page to promote a fundraiser to her personal & social network. (Information on how to set up your fundraising page is linked below.) Last year we recommended the 'Slow Bottle Drive Fundraiser.' This is a simple fundraising initiative where you invite family and friends to save bottles and donate collected refunds through your personal fundraising page (hosted through our Canada Helps Donation Partner). All who donates online via your personal fundraising page will receive a tax-receipt for his or her donation(s). But you aren't limited to a 'Slow Bottle Drive,' there are many options, so choose something close to your heart and promote away!
Earn Points on Funds You Raise Toward Captivenia Logo Items
The personal fundraising page you create will track the total funds you raise. For every hundred ($100) dollars raised, you will be awarded 15 points in ‘Swag Dollars’ which can be used to purchase Captivenia ‘Swag’ items. (Swag = Captivenia Logo items, such as Thermal Mugs, Journals, clothing, etc). For example, if you fundraise $500, you receive 75 Swag Dollars towards said items; if you fundraise $1000, you receive 150 Swag Dollars, and so on. Each Swag Dollar has a $1 value. So if you collect 75 Swag Dollars, this equals $75 dollars which you can use to purchase 2019 Logowear.
Note: We have been asked if points earned can be used to reduce camp registration fees, they cannot. As we want to keep things simple for our administration and book-keeper, we are not able to offer points to discount your camp registration fees at this time.
Prizes to Top Fundraisers
In addition to earning points towards the purchase of Captivenia logo items, we will also be awarding prizes to those with the highest fundraising totals. Prizes will be awarded at Captivenia in July. *Note this list is subject to change as additional prizes are donated.
