Welcome to the Alabama/Gulf Coast Chapter Fundraising Page. Here you will find all of the tools you need to be successful in your fundraising: Ideas, Sample letters, Paycor information, Corporate Sponsorship Proposals and more.
PAYCOR INFORMATION & FORMS
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society uses Paycor, an accounting center based in Cincinnati, OH, to process all Team In Training donations. Donations are sent to Paycor by TNT participants to be recorded and processed. Each TNT participant will have an account with Paycor into which donations are posted, much like a checking account. It is the responsibility of the participant to follow all directions and send money to Paycor correctly. By following the directions carefully now, you can save a lot of time later!
- Have your donors send their contributions directly to you. If donors send them directly to Paycor or the TNT office there is a great chance that they won't get to your account.
- Send donations to paycor on a weekly basis. The labels provided in your binders can be used to mail the donations. The participant donor form must accompany each batch of donations to paycor.
- Keep a detailed record of all of your donations. Make copies of all of the checks that you send to Paycor.
Participant Donor Forms: This form must accompany every group of donations you send to Paycor. Whether you send one donation or several, this form must be sent every time you mail donations to Paycor for placement into your account. Be sure to double check your calculations and include your contact information, event and sport. Also, please make sure your name and event appear on the memo line of each check. Please send your donations, along with this Participant Donor form to:The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Alabama/Gulf Coast Chapter, Dept. #922, P.O. Box 145900, Cincinnati, OH 45250
Included in the Participant Donor Form Document is a Cash Donation Form. If you have any cash donations, record the donor's name, address and phone number as well as the amount of their donation on this form. Please convert all cash to a check or money order made out to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Also included in the above document is a Credit Donation Form. Please do not send the credit donation forms to Paycor along with checks. Put your name and the event you are participating in on the memo line of the check before sending them to Paycor. Please do send all credit card donations on this donation form. It must include the donor's name, address, credit card number, expiration date and the amount of their donation along with the donor's signature. Please note: Paycor will not process credit cards donations without an expiration date.
