How to Finalize Your A-Thon Fundraiser

Finalizing your a-thon fundraiser is a key step to accomplishing your fundraiser’s goals. This step allows us to calculate the final amount to charge your donors for their pledges based on the participant's activity.

We’ll show you how to finalize your fundraiser in the steps below. 

Before you finalize

Before finalizing your a-thon experience, take a few moments to go through the following steps.

  1. First, check that all write-in donations have been edited to credit the desired participant(s). You may need to edit some donations to ensure the appropriate individuals get credited.
  2. Second, if check donations were accepted on the experience, they will need to be marked as received to be included in the final amount raised. Note: Check donations are only allowed on one time donations, not per unit of activity donations
  3. Finally, you’ll need to enter all activity results.

How to finalize

Once the end date for your a-thon fundraiser is reached, a new FINALIZE button will appear on the enter activity results page. You won’t be able to finalize your fundraiser until your end date is reached.

Once you’ve completed the steps above and your experience has ended, you’re ready to finalize your experience. Simply go to the enter activity results page and click the finalize results button.

Please note that the donor credit cards are charged once you finalize results, and no additional activity results can be entered.
