Fundraising Guide

Thank you for fundraising with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children! This page will serve as a guide on how to get started with fundraising with instructions and screenshots. If this is your first time fundraising on our new platform, it may be helpful to read this entire guide before fundraising.

Step 1

Select an event to register for

Navigate to the main NCMEC events page and click “Register / Donate” on the event you wish to fundraise for. This will bring you to the single event page.

Step 2

Register for the selected event

Once you’re on the single event page, you can register for the event by clicking the “Register” button and filling out the registration form.

Step 3

Payment Confirmation Page

After completing registration, you will be taken to the “Payment Confirmation” page and receive an email with instructions on how to view, manage, and share your fundraising page at the email you entered during registration. This emailing process also verifies that you correctly entered your email. If you do not receive the instructional email (and it’s not in your spam folder), contact the Ride committee at admin@therideformissingchildren.com
