What is unique about this website?

This website is so unique because it offers the capability for individuals to not only register for the event, but also to collect donations from their friends and family through a much more efficient mechanism. Cobequid Health Centre Foundation Event Manager and the event Participant can track the progress of donation collections through viewing secured online reports.

What is the long website address for that I received in my confirmation receipt?

This website address will take you to your personal donation page. This address link is automatically included in any emails that are sent through the email center in event headquarters after you have logged into the website. You can also copy and paste this link into any other form of email.

Can friends and family make a donation to a Participant by going through the main website?

Yes. On the home page of the website, friends and family can locate a Participant by clicking on the "Sponsor Participant" button. By typing in the name of the Participant, they will be directed to the Participant's personalized pledge page.

Is a portion of the registration fee a donation?

Yes. Your donation amount is the amount you paid for registration minus the gift value (if applicable). This donation amount will appear in your running donation totals.

You must type in the first name or last name of the Participant exactly how it is spelled. It is not case sensitive.

All of my Donors are not showing up on the scroll mechanism. Why?

As your Donors make a contribution, they have the option of whether or not they want to appear in the recognition scroll.

Will Blackbaud put my name on various mailing lists?

Blackbaud collects and maintains only personal information that is voluntarily submitted to us. We will only share personally identifiable information with a third party if and when the individual submitting this information has permitted us to do so, or if we are required by law to do so.
