What are My Fundraiser pages?

My Fundraiser pages are customizable personal fundraising pages that are built in to our website. This system makes it simple for you to customize your page and email your friends and family to ask for their support and makes it easy for them to donate securely.

How do I create a My Fundraiser page?

Visit My Fundraiser, click on the "Create your Fundraising Page" box on the right and follow the instructions on your screen. After you register, you will be prompted to set up a My Fundraiser page. Customizing your page is a great way to connect with your supporters and personalize your cause.

What kind of event should I host?

It’s up to you. People have raised money for us with events that range from lemonade stands to gala dinners. See our My Fundraiser Toolkit for ideas. Be mindful of local laws and regulations when planning your event. The PBTF reserves the right to deny permission for use of our name and logo at any time.

How can I customize My Fundraiser page?

You will see instructions in your Participant Center after you have registered your home page. If you need assistance, call us at 800-253-6530 or email myfundraiser@curethekids.org.

How do I direct people to My Fundraiser page?

When you set up your page, you can create your own custom URL (web address) that you can use again and again. Add this link to your emails and other correspondence with supporters.

Call 800-253-6530 or email myfundraiser@curethekids.org with questions.

What kind of gifts can I accept on My Fundraiser page?

My Fundraiser pages accept credit card and Pay Pal gifts and allow you to enter cash and checks you receive as “offline donations.” Cash and check donations should be sent to the PBTF after you have settled all of your event expenses.

How do I cover my event expenses?

All expenses affiliated with your My Fundraising event are your personal responsibility. The PBTF cannot reimburse community fundraisers for their expenses. Be sure to plan your event so you will have enough cash or checks made out to you to cover your event expenses. You should submit your net proceeds to the PBTF after all of your event expenses are settled.

If you have any other questions call us at 800-253-6530 or email myfundraiser@curethekids.org.

Where does the money go?

Donations fund the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s medical research and family support programs. The researchers we fund specialize in childhood brain tumors. Their results are leading to new treatment protocols that are shared with neuro-oncologists and neurosurgeons around the country. We also offer family support services in local communities, including free educational materials and college scholarships for brain tumor survivors.

Who are the checks made out to when I am fundraising?

All checks should be made payable to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation or PBTF. If someone gives you cash or writes a check in your name, please deposit the funds in your checking account and write us a check for the total. You can mail funds to PBTF, 302 Ridgefield Ct., Asheville, NC 28806. Be sure to include your donor's name, address and gift amount. Contact us at 800-253-6530 or myfundraiser@curethekids.org with any questions.

If someone sends me money, how do I add it to my fundraising page?

You can enter these funds as offline donations on your My Fundraiser page. Click here to login and update your page if you have already registered. If you need help, contact us at 800-253-6530 or myfundraiser@curethekids.org.

Will I get a tax receipt?

Is my credit card information secure?

Are Donations Tax Deductible?
