Your online fund-raising page is your biggest asset as you work to meet your goal. Keep in mind that the average online donation is significantly higher than the average donation made by check. So, whenever possible, direct your supports to your fund-raising page to make donations. Setting up your page very simple, and it will take you less than 15 minutes to complete.
1.) Click this link. You will be directed to the First Giving website, our online donation partner.
2.) Click “Get Started”
3.) Select “Powered by Hope” unless you are registered with Team TobyMac, in which case select “Team TobyMac with Powered by Hope”
4.) Follow the instructions to set up your page.
5.) Personalize your page: Make sure to upload a picture of yourself (it doesn’t have to be an athletic picture.) and personalize the message a bit, telling your audience why you decided to run or walk with Powered by Hope.
6.) When you complete the set-up, you will be given a URL for your page. Use this in all communication with your supports. Congratulations, you are now ready to accept donations online!
