Average Joe Run works with many local organizations. Average Joe Run’s number one goal in working with charities is to increase cause awareness. We want to help shine a light on important issues. We hope our Average Joe Runners will spend time learning about our partner charities, join their mailing lists, attend charity events and become advocates for these causes. We give our charity partners a microphone to speak to thousands of good hearted people.
Each charity’s needs are a little different, and as a result each of our charity partners ask for our help in different ways. Here are a few ways Average Joe Run helps raise funds for our charity partners:
1) Post Race Donation. This is where we make a financial donation to our charity partner. This set amount is determined in communication with the charity and depends on the level of involvement/volunteers provided by the charity.
2) Embedded giving. We provide our runners the opportunity to add a donation that goes directly to the charity during the registration process. Our charities are constantly overwhelmed by the kindness of our Average Joe Runners.
3) Charity Registrations. We provide a percentage of the registration fees to the charity.
