GENERAL QUESTIONS

What is MyDunkTank?

MyDunkTank is a creative fundraising website. We make it easy for organizations, celebrities and individuals to create unforgettable fundraisers with fundraising webpages for everyone who participates.

What types of creative fundraisers can I do?

We support dares, costumes, karaoke and more serious formats like commitments to serve, student contests, memorials and personal challenges. We can also create custom formats by request.

All of our fundraisers incorporate online voting in a creative way. If you're doing a dare, donors could vote for the dare you will do. Or you could have donors vote for a costume you would wear, a karaoke song you would sing, a service you would provide to someone in need - just about anything really!

Donors vote with their dollars. The option that earns the most dollars wins. This playful competition between voting options encourages donors to make larger donations and tell their friends about your fundraiser.

If donors vote for an option that doesn't win, their donation still goes to the fundraising organization.

How much money can I raise?

Individuals usually raise somewhere between a few hundred dollars and several thousand dollars. Celebrities can raise much more. Organizations can raise almost any amount of money. The key for organizations is to rally a large number of supporters to create MyDunkTank fundraising pages.

Can I use MyDunkTank with a fundraiser that is already planned?

Absolutely. We have the most success when MyDunkTank is part of a larger fundraising campaign or a real world event. An event could be as simple as a karaoke night or a dares day. Or it could be as large as a walkathon with thousands of people wearing funny hats that their friends and family choose through online voting.

How much does it cost?

We charge 99 cents per donation plus 9% of the overall donations. Fundraisers are free to setup and there are no other costs of any kind.

How do I get paid?

We mail a check directly to the organization that the fundraiser is supporting. This check typically arrives within 45 days after the fundraiser ends. We can also send payment earlier at the request of the organization. Just ask us.

How do I start a fundraiser?

You can start a fundraiser by signing up as an individual or as an organization. Our creative team will review your goals and recommend fundraising formats that we think will be a hit in your community.

Who picks my voting options?

The individual raising money has full control. They can create, edit and remove voting options. They can also choose to allow their friends and family to create additional voting options - but even then, the individual raising money can always edit or remove voting options at their discretion.

How do I create, edit or remove voting options?

We're working on automating this process. In the meantime, contact us by email or phone and we'll make the changes for you.

VOTING QUESTIONS

How do I vote?

You vote by making a donation toward your favorite option. From any fundraising page, just click on your favorite voting option. Then select how many votes you would like to make. Finally, complete the donation form to submit your votes.

Back to top

Can I vote for more than one option?

Yes, you can vote as many times as you like. Each option you vote for requires a separate donation.

How do I add a voting option to someone's fundraiser?

Some fundraisers allow user-submitted options and others do not. For fundraisers that allow user-submitted options, you will see a link that says "Add a New Option" below the list of voting options (or it might say "Add a New Dare," "Add a New Costume," etc). Just click that link and enter your new voting option. You will need to make the first vote for that option which requires a donation.

Can I get a refund?

Contact us if you made an accidental donation or donated an incorrect amount. We'll help you fix it.
