Together, we #RALLY4ACAUSE
Since our first rally in 2014, all Crown Rally events have been a #rally4acause. We've raised over $168,000 in donations, given 48 cars, and offered hundreds of hours of service to the incredible non-profit organizations we've supported over the years. This is only possible due to the passionate Crown Rally teams, sponsors, staff, and other supporters that have helped spread awareness for our mission. Together, we’re hoping to raise $100,000 in 2019!
What is the Rally4ACause Foundation?
For each of the past 5 years, Crown Rally has selected one charity per year to partner with and fundraise for. In 2018, several Crown Rally staff and veteran ralliers wanted to further our ability to create positive social impact, so the #rally4acause initiative became an official organization operating under the name: Rally4ACause Foundation.
As a result, we will be able to work more efficiently, increase our reach, and most importantly help support additional organizations in need. For 2019, the Rally4ACause Foundation has partnered with three charities: The Epilepsy Foundation, Shriners Hospitals for Children, and Hear the Cheers. After both rallies are completed, the Rally4ACause Foundation will donate all funds evenly to the 3 aforementioned organizations.
Is my donation tax deductible?
The Rally4ACause Foundation is a registered not-for-profit corporation in the state of Minnesota and is additionally in the process of obtaining 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status with the IRS. After approval has been received and Crown Rally 9 has concluded, a tax deductible donation receipt will be emailed to every contributor in the 2019 calendar year.
How does fundraising work with Crown Rally?
Any Crown Rally team, fan, or supporter can create a fundraising profile and start collecting donations on behalf of the Rally4ACause Foundation immediately! Those teams that have signed up for either Crown Rally 8 or Crown Rally 9 will receive $100 donated by Crown Rally from their entry fee. If you’re participating in multiple events in the same year, you do NOT need to create two separate fundraising campaigns – donations can accrue for both at the same time!
- Epilepsy Foundation: The Epilepsy Foundation helps make the world a better, easier, more manageable place for the ~3 million people in the U.S. who are living with epilepsy and seizures.
- Shriners Hospitals for Children: Shriners Hospitals for Children is a network of medical facilities for kids with orthopedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries, and cleft lip and palate. Patients are treated regardless of ability to pay.
- Hear the Cheers: Hear The Cheers offers programs and services that improve the lives of individuals who are Deaf, DeafBlind, or Hard of Hearing by empowering them to connect with the world using new and innovative technology.
