What if someone wants to pledge with a Credit Card?

Are Donations tax-deductible?
Yes. Kids Kicking Cancer, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Tax I.D. 38-3500655.
Some of my supporters would like a “receipt” for their tax records. How do I get them one?
If your donor makes a donation online they will automatically receive a receipt for their tax purposes.
How do we set-up a team page?
Use the standard Registration and if there's not a Team created from your school already you will have the option to create one. Search to avoid duplicates!
What is the deadline for holding a “Kick-A-Thon?”
All Kick-A-Thons must be held and completed between September 10, 2019 and October 31, 2019 to qualify for competition prizes.
What is deadline for mailing in paperwork and funds?
You must postmark by 5 pm EST and mail all fully completed School Package materials in one package by November 12, 2019 to be eligible for competition Prizes.
Please mail package to:
Kids Kicking Cancer 2019 Kick-A-Thon Competition 27600 Northwestern Highway, Suite 220 Southfield, MI 48034
Can I co-mingle all checks and mail in one school check?
We encourage you to not do this. Commingling of funds creates tax and accounting problems for supporters who may be expecting a tax deduction receipt, for identifying donors to send a thank you message to, for attributing donations correctly to the individual students for prize distribution. Please submit all checks separately with the School Package mailing.
Can I send in Cash?
While individual Students may receive cash as pledges / donations, we will not accept cash to be sent in to us. Please make sure all cash donations made to the individual student are noted on their pledge sheets and collected. Please convert all cash donations into a safe payment instrument (money order, cashier’s check) and send in with your school’s package materials.
How are prizes determined if several schools hold their Kick-A-Thon event together?
If multiple schools / studios schedule their Kick-A-Thon’s together then each individual participant must turn their permission slips, pledge sheets and donations into their own school or studios Kick-A-Thon Coordinator. Each School / Studio will mail in their own Package of materials and donations. This way Prize Winners can still be determined and awarded per school / studio.
How will winning school be announced?
The competition numbers will be calculated no later than a week after receipt of the school packages. We anticipate announcing the winners in early December 2019! Winning Schools will be notified directly and we will post the Winners on our Website under the 2019 National Kick-A-Thon Competition area.
