Because ping pong is fun:
The minimum fundraising requirement to qualify for TechPong is $2,000. This amount allows you to enter three players - one in the singles tournament, and two in the doubles tournament.
Depending on capacity, your company can choose to enroll an extra three players (one doubles team and one singles team) for every additional $1,000 raised. We cannot guarantee that there will be capacity for every company to add additional teams.
To qualify for TechPong, you must meet the minimum fundraising requirement by midnight on October 31st, one week before the tournament.
Each team is composed of one doubles team and one single player (three players total). Teams can be co-ed and of mixed levels of abilities. Competition can get a bit fierce, but the play is always fun and friendly. The first round of competition will be timed, with top scorers moving on to the next round. More details on the full play of tournament will be released closer to the event date.
Of course! It's completely up to you how you structure your teams.
Your Campaign will capture the total sum of all contributions made to your fundraiser. It can be used as your team’s only fundraising page, or you can invite individuals to create supporting Giving Groups. Giving Groups could be created for different departments, small work fundraisers (i.e. bake sale), or individual team members.
A Giving Group is a stand-alone fundraising page, and a wonderful way to gather people together to raise money for a cause. You can invite people to join as members, easily share your group on social media, and set a visible fundraising goals.

Absolutely! Since Charitable Impact Foundation is a registered charity, all donations made on this platform are immediately tax receipted.
Only donations submitted directly to Charitable Impact can be tax receipted. If you have collected a sum of cash outside of Charitable Impact, the individual contributors cannot be tax receipted. If you are hosting a bake sale, or other similar fundraisers at work, why not create a Giving Group for the occasion? Through a Giving Group linked to your Campaign individuals can automatically send funds directly to your company's main Campaign page. Tax receipts will then be issued for individual donors to the Giving Group.
To qualify for TechPong, funds must be donated to your official TechPong 2019 Campaign page. This is how we track the total amount donated, and the total amount on the Campaign page cannot be artificially inflated.
