HOW IT WORKS Philanthropy + fitness ALL▴TRIcoaches you, encourages you, and helps you reach a minimum fundraising goal which pays for ALL▴TRI sponsored training, event entry and event travel costs.
Many national charities raise money for their own operations through running, triathlon, walking and bicycling endurance event training programs.
All of these charity fundraising events and campaigns spend money to make money.
The Better Business Bureau's Wise Giving Alliance says that charities should spend no more than 35% percent of related contributions on fundraising.
ALL▴TRI keeps its cost of fundraising at or below 35%.
You will be coached to complete a triathlon and achieve a fundraising goal,
Your proceeds benefit the cause of your choice
At least 65% of the funds you raise will go directly to your beneficiary's mission.
ALL▴TRI is a volunteer-powered non-profit organization. ALL▴TRI also receives direct contributions that help us help you help others.
As such, 35% percent of your minimum fundraising goal is all that ALL▴TRI retains to help cover the out-of-pocket costs of training and sending you to your event.
These out-of-pocket costs include your event travel expenses, race entry fees, bike shipments for non-local triathlons, a pre-race carbo-loading dinner, an online training tool with a customized training program, your training coach, group swim workout facilities for triathlons, and more.
Your minimum fundraising goal will vary based on the event for which you are training.
ALL▴TRI participants are responsible for whatever personal equipment is required for their training program (such as running shoes, plus a bicycle, swim goggles and bike helmet if training for a triathlon) and their individual training activity (such as access to a pool).
ALL▴TRI participants are required to provide a $150 non-refundable registration fee to activate their training program. This amount does not count toward minimum fundraising goals.
