HOW TO HANDLE
The funds you raise for the Best Buddies Challenge can be broken up into two different types of donations: Online and Offline. Online donations are made through your secure personal webpage using a credit card and are reflected immediately, meaning your work is done! Offline donations, like checks that must be mailed in, require a few additional steps on your part. It is imperative that your offline donations be handled properly to avoid any errors in crediting your donations.
Ready to get started? Check out the following instructions:
First, make sure that you tell donors to make their checks out to Best Buddies International.
Next, for each offline donation that you receive, an offline gift form needs to be filled out in its entirety. You can download an offline gift form here.
After you have collected your checks and made sure they are made out to Best Buddies International, filled out a corresponding offline gift form, and entered in your offline gift into your HQ, you are ready to send your checks and forms all in!
Please note our new mailing address for donations:

Once the Best Buddies Donation Manager receives and processes your offline donations, they will be credited to your account.
