YOUR JOURNEY, YOUR CAUSE

Overview

The Your Journey, Your Cause Fundraising Program was designed by the IRONMAN Foundation to provide registered athletes with the opportunity to transform their IRONMAN journey into a passionate commitment and support a cause they’re passionate about.

Registered IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 athletes are invited to participate in the Your Journey, Your Cause program. Once registered for your event, you can select a U.S. registered non-profit beneficiary of your choice and fundraise through the IRONMAN Foundation to support their mission.

Anyone can participate! The only requirement is that you must select a U.S. registered non-profit beneficiary and must have purchased your entry prior to signing up.

  • There is no minimum fundraising requirement. The Your Journey, Your Cause program was developed to help you support a cause that you are passionate about.
  • There is a $25 fee to participate in this program, payable at the time of registration, and is retained by the IRONMAN Foundation to support administrative efforts. This registration fee is 100% tax deductible but is maintained by the IRONMAN Foundation and does not go towards your overall fundraising effort.
  • The total processing fee is 12% (including credit card processing fees, platform, and administrative costs). Your chosen organization will receive 88% of the funds raised over the $25 registration fee through the Your Journey, Your Cause program.
  • You are fundraising for your chosen beneficiary through the IRONMAN Foundation, a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Your chosen beneficiary MUST be a U.S. registered non-profit.
  • You will need to provide your chosen beneficiary's EIN to confirm its nonprofit status and contact information to the IRONMAN Foundation before disbursement can be made. Benefactors who are individuals or other crowdfunding pages are not eligible. Your nonprofit must have a Tax ID number recognized by the IRS.
  • International charities are not recognized as 501(c)(3) nonprofits by the IRS, therefore we are not able to make international contributions.
  • Register for an IRONMAN Event.
  • Email the IRONMAN Foundation at athletesupport@ironmanfoundation.org to access and set up your fundraising page. 
  • Add pictures and tell the story of why you’re so passionate about the charity you chose.
  • Share your story with everyone.

We keep your fundraising page open an additional 30 days after your IRONMAN event. After the 30 days, it takes approximately 60 days for processing and payment. All payments will be made within 90 days of your IRONMAN event.

When registering you will be required to provide your charity name and a mailing address for the IRONMAN Foundation to maile your fundraising efforts.  We will make every effort to locate your chosen charity from the information you provided when you joined the Your Journey, Your Cause Program. If your chosen charity cannot be located OR it has closed, the IRONMAN Foundation reserves the right to allocate your donation to our Community Fund that supports grant funding initiatives within our IRONMAN race communities.

No. You may only support one organization per fundraising page.
