1. Thank you
First of all, a huge thank you for choosing to take part in Challenge 1000.
Your decision to raise £1000 for our charity during 2016 will contribute towards ensuring that more children in the United Kingdom can access the benefits of the Dot Com programme.
Your kind fundraising efforts will ensure more children are empowered to practice positive values and make safer choices in life.
The purpose of these Participant Guidelines is to ensure you fully understand the terms & conditions of supporting the Dot Com Children’s Foundation (‘Dot Com’) by entering Challenge 1000.
As a Challenge 1000 participant, you are taking on a voluntary and temporary role. Your objective is to raise the sum of £1000 before the end of 2016. You will receive no monetary payment or other financial incentive in return for your participation.
As a registered UK charity, Dot Com has a duty to properly record all of our fundraising activity.
By choosing to volunteer for Challenge 1000, you understand and accept that four (4) months, after your registration, we will contact you by either telephone, email or text to check your progress in raising the £1000.
We encourage only safe fundraising activities.
If you choose to take on a physical activity (such as a sponsored run, walk, swim or a diet) it is important for you to ensure this activity is as safe as possible.
All participants in Challenge 1000 are responsible for their own health and safety and the Dot Com Children’s Foundation is not responsible or accountable for any accidents that may occur as a consequence of any Challenge 1000 activity you choose to undertake.
There are many simple, ethical ways to raise funds.
Some of the ideas you might want to consider include:
karaoke talent evening
car boot sale
small dinner party
Strictly Come Dancing talent show
If you choose to hold a raffle, it is important that you:
If you choose to hold an event (such as a dinner party) you may incur costs that need to be recouped from the proceeds. It’s important to keep a proper record of these costs.
We have a simple Event Management Record sheet that we can share with you. Please send an email to email@example.com to request this and we will send this to you.
All Challenge 1000 participants will be issued with an identification lanyard, with your unique Dot Com fundraising reference number on it. You can carry this on your person or wear this at your event.
The lanyard will contain your name and Dot Com’s registered charity number, website address and an email address. This information will allow people to contact us to verify that you are a registered fundraiser for Dot Com.
All participants in Challenge 1000 will be entered onto our database as a registered fundraiser.
You are welcome to send the funds you have raised for us at any time.
These funds can be sent using the following methods:
When you are sending any money to us by bank transfer, please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can track this payment and ensure it is allocated to your total.
If none of these methods is possible, let us know on email@example.com and we can arrange an alternative.
If you do not succeed in raising the full £1000 that is understandable and we appreciate all fundraising efforts.
The amount that you have raised will need to be sent to us no later than 31 December 2016. We are happy to receive interim payments along the way – we will keep a record of these, but helpful if you do too.
If we have not heard from you by 31 December 2016 we will contact you to arrange collection of the money you have raised. In any event, we’d love to hear from you along the way to see how you are getting on!
Those people that successfully raise the £1000 will be given a ‘Certificate of Success’.
This will be awarded at a specially arranged celebration party that will take place when the 2016 Challenge 1000 has been completed.
