There are two location where you are able to log in. First make sure you are where you want to be.
To register for your own event:
1) Your event is set up. Now, you are interested in registering (aka buying a ticket) for your own event. Go to your link: http://jdrfevents.donordrive.com/event/YOUREVENTNAMEHERE (each link is specific to each event). Simply click the Buy Ticket, Register, etc. button and it will take you from there.
To edit your event landing page:
2) Let’s say that you want to edit your event landing page (the webpage everyone sees when they want to donate or participate in your event.. In that case, follow this link: http://jdrfevents.donordrive.com/admin and enter your email address you provided when regsitering and password: teamjdrf. You can then go in, select events from up top, and then your event will appear. If you click “Edit” off on the right-hand side, you will then be able to edit the content of your page, add photos/images, etc.
The matter of the URL being too hard to remember is an easy fix. Tell them to go to www.jdrf.org/teamjdrf. Click "Find your event". Select the state your event will be held in, and go into the menu of events, select your event, then register/donate.
The designated URL is handy for inserting as a link in mailings, etc--but no need to use it every time!
Raising money is easy! We find that a viral letter writing campaign has been the most successful and Team JDRF provides you with the tools necessary. We have some great "How To" documents, as well as some tips and tools that can help in your efforts.
Yes! Teams consist of one team captain and as many team members as you would like to include (even just two members can make a team), who are working together toward a common goal. In addition to each team member having access to their own personal fundraising page, teams will have a customizable team page. The team page will include information about the team's joint fundraising efforts, overall fundraising goal, and links to all team members' personal pages. All funds raised by individual team members and any donations made to the group will go toward the team's overall fundraising total.
Every online donation will receive an automated email acknowledgment that can be used for tax purposes. For offline donations of $250 or more, JDRF will send an acknowledgment in the mail. It is also a good idea to send your own personal thank-you to anyone who responds to your request for support. Share photos or updates on your progress to make contributors feel part of your efforts. When you log on to your Team JDRF account, you will be able to see a list of donors who have contributed to your efforts.
Checks should be made payable to JDRF. All offline donations should be turned in at your local event to your local event organizer. Local Event Organizers: please send your offline donations in the form of checks in fhe Fed Ex envelope mailed to you shortly after your event has gone "live."
If a supporter makes the check payable to you, simply endorse the check with your signature and "Payable to JDRF".
It’s never safe to mail cash. Have cash donors transfer the cash into a cashier's check or personal check.
Many companies offer employees a matching gift benefit that doubles (or in some cases, triples) your gift. By participating in these programs, you and your supporters can significantly increase the impact of their donation.
Contact your human resources or finance department to see if your company has a matching gift program, taking note of any possible restrictions. Fill out the proper forms, and then send your paperwork with donations to your local JDRF chapter, noting your event name and Team JDRF. Remind your donors that their companies may have matching gift programs too.
JDRFcannot reimburse you for your fundraising expenses. To keep your expenses down, consider asking local businesses for in-kind donations in exchange for advertising on your flyers, brochures, letters, t-shirts and other event materials.
Because in-kind donations to your event do not directly benefit JDRF we cannot provide tax receipts for these contributions.
Our Team JDRF logo was specifically designed to help members achieve a branded, polished look for their letters, flyers, event programs and other event materials. Team JDRF members may not use the logo of The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
