I am just browsing CiviCRM as a possible tool to run an annual sponsored event. I'm a bit overwhelmed by the size of the tool and I wondered if someone could please point me in a good direction to get me started?
The event is an annual sponsored cycle ride. Each participant signs up with a range of options:
- Distance (100km or 30km)
- Transport to the event (chargeable) (Yes or No)
They have their own fundraising page with a link that they can promote by email or on Social Media and friends click on a "Give Now" button to sponsor them. The fundraising pages are customisable with a photo of the participant and the ability to write a few lines explaining why they are taking part. It would be good to be able to pre-populate the page with some default text.
Some participants take part over several years and it would be good to be able to track their previous participation and fund-raising over the years.
It would be good for each sponsor to be able to view all their donations. Some people sponsor several participants.
