Fundraising

For those of you who have signed up to your Ultra Challenge on the Charity Sponsorship or Mixed Fundraising here you can find all the information and advice you need in order to reach your target.

Contact from your Charity

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

You can expect to hear from your chosen charity within 2 weeks of registering onto your Ultra Challenge. Whilst every charity communicates slightly differently with their fundraising most offer advice, guidance, fundraising buckets/ donation tins, t-shirts etc. 

However we want to ensure that each fundraiser has heard from their chosen charity, and is receiving this vital support – therefore we ask that if you’ve not heard from your charity within 2 weeks of signing up to your challenge, or perhaps you’ve transferred/deferred from 2023 to 2024 and still not heard from your charity, please send an email to charity@acitonchallenge.com and we will follow up for you. 

Setting up your Just Giving Page

MAKE SURE YOU DO IT THE RIGHT WAY!

In order for your Charity to track your fundraising for your chosen event, and to know when you’ve reached your target we strongly advise you set up your fundraising page via Just Giving under the correct event page that we’ve had set up.

ADVICE FOR THOSE AFFECTED

If you were due to take on a 2024 challenge, and you cancelled or deferred your place please ensure your Just Giving/ fundraising page is set up correctly for 2024 so that your charity can keep a track of your fundraising.  

We advise that you set up a new fundraising page (using the links in the above section) and add any money you’ve raised on the 2023 event as an ‘offline donation’ to your new page. For more information on how to add money to offline pages please follow this link below:

Concerned about reaching your target?

YOU'VE GOT OPTIONS

If you are concerned about meeting your 50% target we suggest speaking to your charity for help and advice. Alternatively, you can contact us and cover the difference in registration fee to switch to either a Mixed Funding place (if currently on Charity Sponsorship) to reduce your target, or to a Self Funding Place to remove your target completely. 

If you would like to amend your fundraising option, or change to Self Funding complete our short form below, and our team will be back in touch.
