Donations and Fundraising
How These Funds Are Used
Where Does My Money Go?
Proceeds of Albany Pink will benefit The Albany Pink Crisis Fund thru Phoebe Foundation, providing financial assistance to indigent patients of Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital. Phoebe Foundation is an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
Donations should be made payable to “Phoebe Foundation” and can be turned in at Phoebe Foundation, 425 Third Avenue W, Albany, Georgia 31701. We suggest that donors write the full name of the sponsored participant on the memo area of the check, should it become separated from the donation form. Click here to make an online donation. A tax-receipt will be mailed to you directly from Phoebe Foundation.
What Is My Fundraising Goal?
Albany Pink has set a fundraising goal of $100 per participant or $75 per participant for teams of 4 or more. While every participant is strongly encouraged to raise as much as possible, no one will be turned away. Whether you raise $10 or $10,000, every penny counts! You may find it is easier than you think once you get started…Remember that $100 can be as easy as asking 5 people for $20 or 20 people for $5!
In order to qualify for fundraising prizes, all funds are due by 2:00 p.m. on Friday, March 16, 2018. You may still turn in donations after this deadline, but they will not be included in totals for top fundraiser prizes to be announced at the event.
What If My Donor Turns In Cash?
We recommend that you do not send cash by mail. If you receive cash, we ask that you consider providing a check or money order payable to “Phoebe Foundation” for the donated amount. Be certain to attach a completed donation form so that the donor receives credit for their donation. To insure that the donation is tax-deductible, it is recommended that it is paid by check or money order or online to Phoebe Foundation.
