You can share your Closer to Free Ride fundraising page anytime (and with pre-written posts!) by clicking on the social icons at the bottom of your fundraising page. To quickly find and view your page, search for your name above in the donate section. Click to see more
By using the social icons you can connect to Facebook, send a tweet, post to LinkedIn and even email a direct link! And, if you're on a smartphone you can follow these same steps but as an extra perk, send a text to your contacts to ask for donations. Sending a donation ask has never been easier!
All donations made by check must be accompanied with an offline donation form. Click to see more
You can drop offline donations at our office during normal business hours OR mail them to our office.

Your Closer To Free App Features Include:
Text for Donations and Thank Yous! The CTF app now allows you to text any contact in your device’s address book to request donations or send a thank you note. A link directly to your fundraising page will appear along with your text and you can even schedule texts to go out at a later date! Click here to view the tutorial video.
Easy Email Asks and Thanks. Schedule and send emails to request donations from or send thank you notes to contacts in your device’s address book. Donation and thank you emails are pre-written and ready to use (or you can write your own). Tip: It’s best to schedule these for Fridays or the 15th and 30th of the month when most people get paid and are feeling extra generous!
LinkedIn and Twitter posts. You can now schedule posts directly on LinkedIn and Twitter to reach an even larger audience of supporters.
Fun Photo Customization! The app now allows you to select your own image to be posted with a message. You can select a photo from your camera roll and customize it with the CTF logo and a series of fun filters. (This option is also available through Twitter and LinkedIn, and you can save the custom photo to your camera roll to use in text messages and emails.)
Boost your fundraising with our Facebook Fundraising App. Automatically post pre-written (or your own customizable) posts in newsfeeds, update your profile picture to the Closer to Free Ride logo, and keep your Facebook friends up to date on your fundraising progress! Download the Facebook app from your participant dashboard.
