Donors can contribute online through your page, or via cash or checks that you deliver to the NEF office at 203 W. Hillside. Checks should be made payable to NEF or Naperville Education FOundation. Drop them off in an envelope clearly marked with your name. We will update your online fundraising page to reflect the donations within 2 weeks.
Donors can mail checks directly to: NEF, 203 W. Hillside, Naperville, IL 60540.
Running with a family member?
You can use a single fundraising page for your family's fundraising if you are all running to support the same school.
When you register each family member, Qgiv will automatically create a fundraising page for each person. However, you can choose to use only one of those pages as your primary fundraising page for all family members who are running for the same school. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to let the office know you are sharing your page, and remember to set your fundraising goal to the appropriate amount.
Tips for fundraising
Add a picture and personal note on your fundraising page
Set a goal higher than $203. Higher goals can inspire more donations, and you only need to raise your fundraising minimum even if you set a higher personal goal on your fundraising page.
Share your link through email or social media with friends, family or colleagues.
Many companies offer matching funds for employee donations. Paperwork, if needed, can be sent to the NEF office at email@example.com or 203 W. Hillside, Naperville, IL 60540.
You can mark a potential matching gift when donating online (remember to request the matching gift through your company), or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org if a matching gift is on its way. We will credit your fundraising once the funds are received. If possible, include a screenshot or receipt showing the pending matching gift. Depending on the company, the matching gift may take months to arrive at the office.
