The Ride For Roswell Fundraising App Capabilities
So what can you do with The Ride For Roswell Fundraising app? A lot! There’s so much to explore and utilize, including The 2019 Ride For Roswell Leaderboard, your fundraising progress, thanking donors and more. Take a tour of the app below to help your fundraising even more!
Monitor Your Fundraising Progress
The very first thing you see when you launch the app is your fundraising progress. Here, you can keep track of how close you are to meeting (and exceeding!) your goal. You can also update your goal directly through the app. Click Edit next to your goal on the right hand side of your progress wheel.
If you’re on a team, you’ll also be able to see your team’s progress. If you’re a team captain, you’ll be able to edit your team, make someone a team captain and adjust the team goal.
Share Your Page
Now that you’ve made the commitment to be a fundraiser, it’s time to spread the word to bring in those donations. The Ride For Roswell Fundraising app makes it incredibly easy to share your fundraiser on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, email and SMS. You can share your fundraising from three different pages:
- Home (right under your fundraising progress)
- Page (under your link)
View and Manage Your Donations
Keep track of your donations all under the Donors tab. You can see who’s donated to your efforts and how much they gave. You’ll be able to thank them right through the app, too.
Additionally, you can opt to be notified via email when you receive a donation! This is a great option to make sure you never miss a chance to say thank you to a donor.
Update Your Personalized Page
Say goodbye to changing your image and story only on a desktop or laptop. Now, you can do both right through the app! To change your image, you can upload a picture directly from your camera roll or a take a picture using the app. Don’t forget to update your story, too! Showcasing why The Ride For Roswell matters to you will help donors understand how important this cause is to you. If you’re a Team Captain, you’ll be able to edit your team’s page, too.

Now, you’re able to integrate with Facebook through the app. Head to the home screen and scroll down to the “Fundraise on Facebook” section. Follow the prompts and voilà – another touchpoint for donations! You’re online fundraising dashboard will now be integrated with Facebook and you’ll be able to receive donations through the social media platform.
