Our "all are welcome" policy toward non-profit fundraising through the Tops Friendly Markets Community Walk and other events at the Syracuse Festival of Races was established in 2000 with two goals in mind. The first is provide the opportunity for any interested non-profit organization to benefit from the Syracuse Festival of Races. The second is to enable Festival participants themselves to choose what non-profit organizations will benefit from our event each year. Participating non-profits raise funds and visibility through their pledge-centered participation in the event. Since 2000, scores of participating groups have reaped the benefits of participation, raising well over $150,000 for their programs and services.
GROUP REGISTRATION: There is no charge to register your organization for the Tops Friendly Markets Community Walk. To do so, please contact Dave Oja at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide the following information:
We'll be happy add you to our list of participating non-profits for the current year and provide you a couple of pledge envelopes and a supply of individual entry/pledge forms.
Participating non-profits also have the option of receiving online donations via CrowdRise.com. The CrowdRise platform offers each non-profit group the opportunity to create its own giving page at www.CrowdRise.com/SFoR2014. Individuals interested in making donations then have the convenience of making donations by credit card, enabling them to support deserving non-profits while earning credit card rewards at the same time.
