How to Bank Offline Donations
If your friends have sponsored you via cash or cheque, read the information below to learn how you can add the donations to your page, bank the funds and issue receipts to your sponsors.
All offline donations should be added to your fundraising page (through your dashboard) to allow us to issue receipts to your sponsors.
You can pay in each donation as you go, or you can pay all your offline donations in one transaction (at the end of your fundraising).
