Frequently Asked Questions

Creating your first Eventgroove Fundraising a-thon?

Here are answers to our most often asked questions.

What a-thon activities can I create with Eventgroove Fundraising

Any kind of a-thon you can dream up (Hack-a-thons! Art-a-thons! Horse-riding-a-thons!) can be created with Eventgroove Fundraising.

Our unique ‘pledge-per’ functionality gives you the ability to assign any unit of measure to your a-thon. Jog-a-thons can take pledges per mile. Spell-a-thons can take pledges per word.

Can I create an a-thon with one participant?

Yes. Single participant a-thons are common, where only one person is completing an activity and collecting per-unit pledges for their cause.

How do I record a-thon activity results?

Campaign organizers or individual participants can enter activity results into the Eventgroove Fundraising system at any point during or after the fundraiser.

For example, a person participating in a spell-a-thon would add the number of words he or she spelled. That way, the system can calculate results and charge donors for their pledges.

Results don’t need to be recorded at the same time, which means participants may enter results when they are finished—handy if your a-thon runs for an extended period of time.

When are pledge donations processed?

When the campaign ends, you’ll need to confirm that all activity results are in to finalize your a-thon. Once you’ve finalized, the system will calculate each supporter’s total donation based on what they pledged and the activity results entered.

Then, the system will automatically charge each donor’s credit card with the amount, followed by a receipt and a thank-you email to donors.

Can a pledge supporter pledge an unlimited amount?

Yes, if they choose that option. When a supporter makes a pledge, they can indicate the maximum amount they’re willing to donate. They will never be charged any more than that, even if the per-unit pledge activity exceeds their limit.
