VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 25, 2013) - Climb For Change welcomes its newest charity member, Take a Hike Youth at Risk Foundation, to its online fundraising hub and community for charity adventure challenges. A team of volunteers is using the Climb For Change fundraising platform for a February 26 Mt. Seymour snowshoe challenge, raising money for the Take a Hike adventure-based learning program for at-risk youth in Vancouver.
Climb For Change recently launched the first and currently only online fundraising platform catered specifically to charity climbs, treks, hikes and charity adventure challenges.
Thousands of people worldwide challenge themselves with fundraising climbs or other charity adventure challenges each year. Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro for charity for example is particularly effective, with teams often raising money in the $100,000 to $500,000 range. This is impressive fundraising, but does take a lot of time, resources and the right fundraising tools which volunteers often don't have readily available. Enter Climb For Change.
"Our fundraising campaign sites make raising money for charity adventure challenges easier, more engaging and more successful," says Climb For Change Co-Founder and President Mike Schauch. "We've taken the notch up from the simple mass-market fundraising pages out there and are giving volunteers a feature-rich, customizable campaign site template."
With the new online fundraising tool for climbers now available, campaigns that have already signed on include Mount Kilimanjaro charity climbs by four American climbing teams for the American Foundation For Children with Aids, an Aconcagua charity climb for the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center, a Canadian fundraising campaign supporting the education of Himalayan Children in Nepal, and a snowshoe challenge supporting Take a Hike Youth at Risk Foundation.
The Climb For Change fundraising platform is ideal for charity adventure challenges raising a minimum of $2,500 for US, Canadian or UK registered charities. Visit Climb For Change Campaigns to start a fundraising campaign. For more info contact Climb For Change.
