How Race for Education Works

Start by ...

talking with us about your school, your financial goal, and your priorities; reviewing and signing our simple contract; and sending us a list of your students to use in building your online donation pages.

We then ...

organize your Race plan, hold a Work Session with your Race committee, customize your Race materials, and set up your school online for secure credit card donations.  

We also give you self-mailers for parents to distribute to donors who prefer writing checks, produce a Race for Education website for your event, create a sharing link to each student’s fundraising page, and support you throughout the planning and launch.

Your donors will ...

receive a website link to the student’s individual contribution page, click on a “Donate Now” button and make an online contribution, or use a self-mailer to enclose a check.

Finally, you can ...

track progress on our server to view contributions by students and grades, and, most important, enjoy a fun and successful race.
