Click on the "Donate" button in the upper right-hand corner and search for the Rider or team you wish to donate to!
Please write the full name of the Rider you wish to donate to in the memo line and mail your check made payable to PACELINE at the address: PACELINE RIDE, 1010 Broad Street, Augusta, GA 30901.
Please mail the check to PACELINE RIDE, 1010 Broad Street, Augusta, GA 30901. 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 makes the check out in your name, you will have to personally deposit or cash the check and then apply the amount to your rider profile.
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 us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like a tax acknowledgement receipt, it is always best to make a credit card or check donation. Paceline cannot issue tax acknowledgement receipts for cash donations that are not brought directly to the Paceline 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, Paceline 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, Paceline will not complete this receipt form for you as it must be completed by the donor.
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 Paceline is tax deductible. All credit card donors will immediately receive a tax acknowledgement letter via email. All check donors will receive a mailed tax acknowledgement letter after the check is received by Paceline.
