Matching Gifts

Does my employer participate in a matching gifts program?

Visit https://www.velosano.org/donate/employer-match and simply type in the name of your employer and click the employer name to find out more information on the matching gift program.

If you do not see your company or have further questions about matching gifts, ask your Human Resources (HR) representative for additional information. 

 When recommending your matching gift, use the following information: 

  • Our legal name: The Cleveland Clinic Foundation
  • Our IRS tax identification number: 34-0714585 
  • Designate your match request to: VeloSano; indicate Rider Name and/or Team (if applicable

If you or your company needs additional documentation to complete this process, contact us at velosano@ccf.org
 
Mailing Address: Cleveland Clinic Philanthropy Institute; P.O. Box 931517; Cleveland, OH 44193-1655 

If you submitted a match request with your company for your donation, then they’ll reach out to VeloSano to confirm the gift. From there, your company will process the request, send VeloSano the matching funds and we will credit the matching gift to your Personal Fundraising Page upon receipt.

How long will it take for a matching gift to be processed?

The matching gift submission, verification and disbursement process can take an extended period of time and varies by company. Some companies will approve and pay out a matching gift request quickly after the submission date, and others may take up to a year.

It is important for you to find out your company’s matching gift policy and procedures so that you understand when VeloSano is likely to receive the funds, as this can affect the fundraising commitment of the participant you are supporting.

We encourage you and your donors to apply for s matching gift as soon as possible to ensure your funds have the best chance of arriving before the October 15, 2024 fundraising deadline.

NOTE: If your company does not match gifts until after the October 15, 2024 fundraising deadline, notify us at velosano@ccf.org. It’s possible that these funds will not be received prior to the distribution of VeloSano dollars to advance cancer research at Cleveland Clinic and therefore cannot be credited until Bike to Cure in 2025.

When does a matching gift need to be received by VeloSano in order to count to a participant's fundraising commitment?

Matching gift funds must be received by VeloSano by Sunday, October 15, 2024, to count toward a participant’s fundraising commitment.

Teams

What is a team?

There are many reasons Riders come together as a team to ride and fundraise – in honor or in memory of someone or perhaps to bring colleagues together for camaraderie, wellness and in support of a mission. Teams can be made up of family members, friends and/or colleagues.

How do I join and fundraise with a team?

Each team member must register individually and is responsible for their own fundraising commitment for their chosen route. The team captain creates the team and once this is completed you can register to “join” the team.

Is there a minimum number of participants on a team and who can join?

Teams may be as small as two participants and there is no limit on the number who can be on a team. Teams can consist of Riders who are riding different distances, Virtual Fundraisers and Volunteers.
 

If I create a team and people donate to our team, will that fulfill our fundraising commitment?

Fundraising minimums are per individual Rider and Virtual Fundraiser and each is responsible for their personal fundraising commitment.
 
However, team donations made to the overall team are credited into team funds and these dollars can be transferred to individuals with written authorization from the Team Captain.

Team Donations
Team donations are encouraged, accepted and will appear as “Team Funds” on your Team Roster Page. Often, donors can’t choose just one person on a team to donate to and the team donation option alleviates that conflict!
 
Team Funds are separate funds than those raised by individual Riders and Virtual Fundraisers. Although Team Funds are reflected in the total dollars raised by the Team, fundraising minimums are per individual Rider and Virtual Fundraiser and each is responsible for their personal fundraising commitment.
 
Team Fund Strategy
Many Team Captains use Team Funds as a strategy to incentivize and match their teammates’ fundraising efforts or to fill-in gaps necessary to help individuals meet any outstanding fundraising commitments before the October 15 deadline.
 
Credit proceeds from your team fundraisers to team funds. Building this fund can help your teammates reach their individual fundraising commitments and your team to meet your overall fundraising goal!

How many Captains can help lead a team?

Whoever creates the team, becomes the Team Captain as an integral part of the registration process. Once the team is set up, the Team Captain lets team members know to search for and select the team when they register to "Join a Team".

A Team Captain can designate up to four (4) Co-Captains and be listed on the Team Roster. To make someone a Co-Captain, contact velosano@ccf.org. Once established, Co-Captains will be identified on the team roster with a Team Captain badge.

Only the Team Captain has access to the Team Fundraising Dashboard with team tools to communicate with their team mates and monitor team progress.

While Co-Captains do not have the ability to access the Team Fundraising Dashboard and tools, they will be invaluable to support your recruiting, team fundraising and training activities.

Can we accept team donations?

Yes. Team donations are accepted and will appear as “Team Funds” on the Team Roster. Team Funds are separate funds than those raised by individual Riders and Virtual Fundraisers. Although Team Funds are reflected in the total dollars raised by the Team, fundraising minimums are per individual Rider and Virtual Fundraiser and each is responsible for their personal fundraising commitment.

Many Team Captains use Team Funds as a strategy to match their teammates’ fundraising efforts or to fill-in gaps necessary to help meet any outstanding fundraising commitments before the October 15 deadline.

It is the responsibility of the Team Captain(s) to determine the distribution of Team Funds among team members. If as Team Captain you decide to distribute Team Funds to individuals, simply complete this Team Funds Distribution Form instructing to which team member(s) to distribute the funds, scan/save and email it to us no later than October 15, 2024.

Email it to velosano@ccf.org

or mail to:
VeloSano
9500 Euclid Ave, DV
Cleveland, OH 44195

Contact us if you have any questions at velosano@ccf.org or leave a message at 216.444.6150.

Can Team Funds be transferred to individual team members?

Team donations and proceeds from team fundraisers if credited to the team will appear as “Team Funds” on your Team Roster Page. 
 
Team Funds are separate funds than those raised by individual Riders and Virtual Fundraisers. Although Team Funds are reflected in the total dollars raised by the Team, fundraising minimums are per individual Rider and Virtual Fundraiser and each is responsible for their personal fundraising commitment.

Many Team Captains use Team Funds as a strategy to incentivize and match their teammates’ fundraising efforts or to fill-in gaps necessary to help individuals meet any outstanding fundraising commitments before the October 15 deadline.

Team Captains:
When you are ready, typically after the October 15 fundraising deadline, please use the Team Fund Distribution Form to designate how to distribute Team Funds to team members. Please list the names and the dollar amount you would like each participant to receive and email it to velosano@ccf.org.

Contact us if you have any questions at velosano@ccf.org or leave a message at 216.444.6150.

How do I produce custom team jerseys for the Riders on my team?
