Let Your Entrants and Their Supporters Give A Little.

Several times a year, we are approached by clubs or organizations running charity events. They've asked for a method to have their entrants reach out to their supporters to raise money for a worthy cause.

To answer this need, we've developed a Pledge console that let's supporters pledge a donation to the chosen charity to support the efforts of a specific entrant. The way the system works is simple --
  • As sailors enter, they are automatically added to the pledge page.
  • They can then direct their supporters to the pledge page to pledge support for their entry. And they are offered the opportunity to complete their pledge directly with the charity.
  • The progress of each competitor is displayed on a pledge "Leader Board
  • And as the organizer you can provide the charity with the contact information on all pledges, so they can follow up with a thank you or reminder.
To see the pledge system in action, please the CBS Charity Regatta on www.yachtclubdemo.com,
Or you can view the pledge form and tote board from the entry form here
