This page outlines how donations are processed via the Reason2Race (R2R) fundraising campaigns.

How Donations are Received

  • Fundraisers email, Facebook, Tweet and share donation campaigns with family and friends
  • Donors click the Sponsor Me or Make a Donation Button button to donate to a fundraiser’s cause
  • Donations are collected by R2R on behalf of Nonprofit Partners
  • Once an online donation is submitted, R2R sends an automatic email acknowledgement to the donor for tax purposes*
  • The receipt is designed as if delivered from the nonprofit. It contains the nonprofit logo, address and Tax ID number and a message thanking donors for their gift.


How Donor Data is Managed & How Funds are Distributed

  • The first week of each month, R2R generates a donation report and notifies Nonprofit Partners that reports are ready for download
  • Donation reports include all online and offline donations received for the prior month
  • The first week of each month, via ACH R2R issues donation payments for the previous month to Nonprofit Partners. Payments include all online donations minus the processing fee.

  • Reports include data on both online and offline donations.
  • Reports are formatted for easy upload into a nonprofit’s donor management system
