Team Captain Tool Kit

As a team captain for the Climb for Alzheimer's, your team members may be relying on you to have the answer to their questions. We hope you will find this information helpful.

What is a Team?

A team can have any number of team mates, however, your team must complete the grind seven times. If there are five of you, two people will have to do the grind twice. If there are more than seven of you, everyone does the grind once.

There are also different team types:

1)      Friends and Family – your friends and family form the team

2)      Corporate – a team made of co-workers from the same team

Registering

How can someone join my team?

Team members can register online by going to the Climb for Alzheimer's website and clicking on the “Register” icon. As they register they will have the opportunity to join a team.

Donations

How can I deposit donations that I have collected?

You can bring your donations to the Alzheimer Society office, located at 300-828 West 8 Ave in Vancouver, or send them by courier or registered mail. Please do not send cash by mail, only cheques. You may also bring your donations with you when you pick up your Team Kit prior to the event.  You may also bring them to the registration tent on event day.

 

May I continue to fundraise after doing Climb for Alzheimer's?

Absolutely! Encourage your supporters to visit your personal page to make a donation. Keep in mind that any donations made or postmarked
by Dec. 31, 2017 will be issued a tax receipt for the 2017 year.

Can someone make a donation to the team rather than an individual?

Yes. They can go to the Climb for Alzheimer's website and click on “support a team”. They will then be able to search for the team name and make their donation

How does someone make an online donation to me or my team?

Visiting the Climb for Alzheimer's website will display the “Donate Now” button, which will take them to a new webpage where they can choose to support a team or an individual. This will then take them to the Search Page where they enter the Team name, the Team Captain’s name or the individual they would like to support. They then simply follow the step by step directions for making a donation.

 

Team T-shirts

How does my team qualify to receive t-shirts with our team name?

Your team must raise a minimum of $5,000 in order to have your team name printed on your shirts.

What does the team captain submit to order the t-shirts?

The team captain submits the sizes for all of their t-shirts before September 3.

When do I pick up my team t-shirts?

Team t-shirts will be available for pick up on September 21 and 22 at the Alzheimer Society of B.C. office located at 300 – 828 West 8th Avenue between 12 p.m. and 6 p.m. or on event day at the registration tent located in the parking lot.

Who has the responsibility of picking up the team t-shirts?

The team captain or someone they designate will need to pick up the t-shirts for their team. We do not need the whole team in attendance to receive their t-shirts.   It is the responsibility of the team captain to distribute the shirts to their team members. T-shirts will not be given to individuals if they are part of the team. All of the team shirts must be picked up at the same time.

Individual T-shirt pick up

If you have registered as an individual, and not part of a team, you may pick up your shirt on September 21 and 22 at the Alzheimer Society of B.C. office located at 300 – 828 West 8th Avenue between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. or on event day at the registration tent.

Corporate Matching

How can you DOUBLE your donation?

Imagine being able to raise twice the amount of money with every fundraising event that you do? It is a possibility; ask your employer if they have a corporate matching program. 

How do I submit my corporate match?

Have your company send us a letter with their donation, stating that they are matching your donations.  Please ensure that they include the name you used when you registered so that the donation will be credited to your fundraising total.

Tax receipts for corporate matching

Tax receipts will be issued to your company for the amount they have matched.
