Fundraising Incentives


Fundraising Incentives

As a way of saying a huge THANK YOU for fundraising for the CHIditarod Foundation, we’re putting together some awesome incentive prizes.

The fundraising incentives compile, so whatever amount of money you raise you receive that level of prize plus all the prizes at lower levels! A team or group’s final online fundraising total by March 1, 2019 at 12pm CST (noon the day before the race) will determine what level of bonuses you receive. Check back closer to the race to see what prizes we’ve got in store for you this year!

Online fundraising amounts are counted towards prizes only when they are hosted at Chiditarod’s official fundraising site.  We will still gladly accept other means of online fundraising, but you will not be eligible for incentives. You can still fundraise on race day and hand in all additional monies and/or checks (made out to The CHIditarod Foundation) at the registration and/or the finish line.

If you raise offline money prior to the race and before the online cut-off, you need to hand those checks (made out to The CHIditarod Foundation) or cash at the Starting Line! We’ll have envelopes ready for you at Registration or at the Finish Line.  If you have any questions about fundraising, incentives, or donations, please contact us at
