3) MIXED FUNDED
This option is a mixture of both of the above – whereby you contribute more to the challenge yourself, but you still fundraise for your chosen charity, and some of this fundraising will go towards the cost of your challenge.
Essentially, the amount you are contributing yourself will cover the travel and accommodation part of your package, to ensure that your fundraising is aimed directly at the ‘challenge’ part of your adventure. Once you have paid your registration deposit, you will not be asked for any further money until 12 weeks before the departure of your challenge. This final balance is due for payment 10 weeks prior, along with any fuel surcharges imposed by the airline.
Upon registration, you will be asked to specify the name of the charity you want to fundraise for. If you're not quite sure, please do still sign up and pass on the details to us as soon as you've made a decision. Once the charity has been confirmed, we will sort out all formalities with them to allow you to begin your fundraising stress-free. You can set up an online giving page to begin collecting your funds.
Most charities ask for 80% of the fundraising to be sent to them no later than 12 weeks before your challenge, with the final 20% due before you depart - please check with your specific charity.
Action Challenge will invoice your charity for your final balance 12 weeks before departure, for payment by 10 weeks prior to your departure.
