Absolutely! We encourage it, actually. Teams should NOT do this. Only families who don't want Aunt Edna to have to donate 3 separate times to 3 separate kids.
In order to do so, FIRST email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and give us a heads up that you’re doing this so we don’t charge one of the fundraisers with a registration fee (for not exceeding $250 on their individual page) when they arrive.
Next, you're going to focus your fundraising on just one page and ignore the other(s). So for example, if you've signed up David, Sarah, and Ryan, you can use David's fundraising page as your primary fundraising page and just leave Sarah and Ryan's pages alone (don't share them).
You'll want to customize the fundraising page so that it represents all the individuals associated with the page. You can do that in a few ways:
- Change the Title to reflect the names of the fundraisers (Ex: "David, Sarah, and Ryan's Tap Cancer Out BJJ Open Fundraising Page!")
- Change the Profile Picture to represent all the fundraisers
- Change the Story to talk about the fundraisers, why they're fighting, who they're fighting for, etc
- Add Media (pictures, video, etc) to represent the fundraisers even further
How We Split the Perks:
We split the perks as equitably as possible. We can split them down the middle, if that makes the most sense. So for example, if there are two fundraisers and their page raises $500, splitting it $250 / $250 makes the most sense so both competitors can compete for free. However, if they raise $1,000, splitting it $500 / $500 would leave them both short of the $600 perk level. It would make more sense to split it $600 / $400 so between the two of them they've earned 2 free entries, 2 fundraiser tees, and 1 hoodie or rashguard.
Also, if not enough is raised it may result in one or more of the fundraisers requiring an entry fee at the door. So for example if $400 is raised between two fundraisers, we wouldn't split it down the middle ($200 / $200) leaving both fundraisers short of the $250 necessary for free entry. Instead we'd honor 1 free entry and 1 fundraiser tee (which is the $400 level perk) and 1 of the fundraisers would owe an entry fee.
This may require some discussion with you and our team to get on the same page, so if you have any questions about the split please reach out to us BEFORE the tournament so we can lay out the options.
