Q:
How do I make a donation?
A:

You can make a credit card donation by visiting the Donate page on our website and then searching for the Rider you wish to support.  Once you have found the appropriate Rider, select the orange ‘Donate’ button and you will be guided through the donation process.

Q:
How do I make a check donation?
A:

Please write the full name of the Rider you wish to donate to in the Memo Line and mail your check made payable to CHAINBREAKER at the address below:

CHAINBREAKER
PO Box 14469
St. Paul, MN, 55114

Please note, the above address accepts USPS mail only.

Q:
What do I do if a donor hands me a check?
A:

Please mail the check to our check processing address. Also, be sure that your Rider name is included in the memo line, so that we may appropriately apply the donation to your ride. If the donor made the check out to your name, you are able to sign the check over to Chainbreaker prior to mailing it in by writing “Pay to the order of Chainbreaker” in the endorsement area on the back of the check along with your signature.

Q:
Why do you ask for so much donor information?
A:

The data we collect is necessary to create accurate donor records and provide appropriate tax acknowledgement information. The information is not used for solicitation purposes. If you have any questions about the information that is being collected, please contact Chainbreaker at info@chainbreakerride.org.

Q:
How does Chainbreaker handle tax acknowledgement receipts for cash donations?
A:

If you would like a tax acknowledgement receipt, it is always best to make a credit card or check donation. Chainbreaker cannot issue tax acknowledgement receipts for cash donations that are not brought directly to the Chainbreaker office by the actual donor. Please do not send cash through the mail.

If you are a Rider who has received a cash donation, there are two options for applying the cash donation to your ride. In the first instance, you may keep the cash and make an online credit card donation to yourself for the same amount. Please note, however, that if you use this option, you will become the official donor and you will receive a tax acknowledgement receipt at the email address that you provide. Please do not substitute the cash donor’s name or address for your own when you make the credit card donation on your card. Alternatively, you may bring the cash donation to our office. In this scenario, Chainbreaker still cannot issue a tax acknowledgement receipt to the cash donor who is not present, but you can pick up a blank cash donation receipt that you can provide to your donor to fill out for his/her own record keeping. Please note, Chainbreaker will not complete this receipt form for you as it must be completed by the donor.

Q:
Is my donation tax deductible and if so, when will I receive a tax receipt?
A:

All donations are 100% tax deductible in the United States, unless the donor received goods and/or services in exchange for all or a portion of his/her donation, such as through an auction or other fundraiser. For foreign donors, please refer to your local tax laws to determine if your donation to Chainbreaker is tax deductible.

All credit card donors will immediately receive a tax acknowledgement letter via email. All check donors will receive a tax acknowledgement letter snail mail after the check is received by Chainbreaker.

Q:
Is Chainbreaker a 501(c)(3)?
A:

Yes, Chainbreaker is a 501(c)(3). If you would like more information about our Tax ID# or non-profit status, please email info@chainbreakerride.org.
