FAQ

How do I register my Company Team on the KIDstruction TeamRaiser site?

  • Your company foreman will register your company team. You/they will start that process by clicking “Start a Company Team” at the top of the site, or in the middle of the homepage.
  • Type out the name of your company and your company team’s fundraising goal (choose a goal that aligns best with your company -- it could be $1,000 or $10,000), along with the company team size (small, medium or large-size company). Click next step.
  • Fill out personal contact information as company foremen will hold the user name/password of the company team’s participant center, which will track donations, progress, emails, etc. Click next step.
  • Click “Complete Registration”
  • Once the overview of the company registration pops up on the screen, you will be able to access the “Participant Center”
  • You will also receive two automated emails. One that says “Thank you for registering your company team” with log-in information and one that is a template email that can be forwarded to the rest of the company. It has the following information:

    Dear ____ (the foreman’s name),

    While you can send emails from your participant center, you can also just forward this note along to share the exciting news of your participation in KIDstruction. (The foreman will have to fill out the name of their company at the top and in the signature.)

How do I use the Participant Center?

  • The Participant Center is only accessible through the user name/password created by the company team foreman. From this dashboard, which can be accessed in the top right corner near the log-in, there are four tabs: Home (shows fundraising progress and recent activity); Email; Progress; and Team Page
  • To customize the team page, click on Team Page Tab. You can change font, change copy, add your company logo or another custom photo, etc. There will be a default photo of a child that can be changed. Click “save” after customizing.
  • You can preview the company team page from this tab as well. This is where you will direct company employees to make their gifts. Employees will be encouraged to click the “Donate Now” link to make their gift on the company team page.
  • The company team page also contains a team roster that shows the Foreman’s name, along with a list of those who have made a donation to the company team. There’s thermometer of team’s progress to their fundraising goal and a team honor roll which shows the top 10 donors on the team (amount of donation can be hidden from public view at time of donation). There is also a link to the full donor list of the company team (again, amount of donation can be hidden from public view at time of donation).
  • Back on the Participant Center dashboard, under the Progress tab, you will see a chart that tracks donation amounts and dates. There is also a donation history section where you can turn off email notifications when someone makes a gift (this was a box that was automatically clicked when signing up a Company Team). A list of personal donations can also be viewed foremen can always see the amount of each donation since they are the “manager” of the team, but the donation amount can be hidden from public view at time of donation.
  • Under the Email tab on the participant center dashboard, the foreman can send emails to company team members by creating his/her own email, or using the templates, which include “Please support our efforts” and a “KIDstruction Team message” that updates the team and asks that a message to friends/family be sent out. Friends and family can also donate to a company page.
  • If idle too long, the session will time out the foreman who is logged in with user name/password
