About making donations:
Unfortunately, I am behind schedule on getting HikeFor incorporated as a non-profit 501(c)3.
the plan was to get this done over the summer well in advance of the end of hiking season.
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find any corporate sponsorship to cover the costs of incorporating,
and until recently my own finances were too tight to allow me to personally foot the bill.
The good news is that I can now afford to cover the costs myself and I'm actively
seeking the support I need (pro bono legal and accounting help) to get it done.
Check out the about page for more info on that.
501(c)3 target date: late October 2013
In the meantime, HikeFor is not ready to accept your donations.
HikeFor needs to collect donations and distribute them to the target non-profits causes, otherwise,
if you make your donations directly to the causes, it will be virtually impossible to report
individual donations and totals here on HikeFor. I tried that in 2010 and even with just the
single cause it was quite a challenge to report payments. With so many new causes supported and
some hikers splitting their pledges between two causes, it will be virtually impossible.
So, please hold off on making your donation. When everything is set up, hopefully in mid to
late October, you'll receive an email to let you know that HikeFor is ready to accept and pass
on your donations.
Thanks for your patience!
