The PMC Winter Cycle now accepts donations by Venmo!

How to use "Donate by venmo" on mobile devices

venmo_donation_pmc_winter_cycleCopy and paste your Donate by Venmo link from your Manage page into a text message asking for donations from any of your contacts who use Venmo. For example, "Please click this link to donate by Venmo to my PMC Winter Cycle fundraising to fight cancer. 100% of your donation will go to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute."

When they click the link, the question Open this page in "Venmo"? appears and the donor simply clicks OPEN, which takes them to their Venmo app pre-populated with the PMC’s Venmo account name (pan-mass-challenge) and your egift ID and name in the “What’s it for?” field. Your donor enters their donation amount and clicks Pay. It’s that fast and easy!

In 1-2 business days, your fundraising will be updated and you will receive a PMC Winter Cycle email notification with your donor’s name and donation amount.

FAQs

Venmo is one of the most popular peer-to-peer payment platforms.

No, you do not need a Venmo account to activate your unique Donate by Venmo Flowcode. Your donors who use Venmo can donate to your fundraising even if you do not use Venmo because they are sending the money to the Pan-Mass Challenge’s Venmo account earmarked for your PMC fundraising.

Flowcodes are customized QR codes. The PMC Winter Cycle is using them to facilitate Venmo gifts to PMC Winter Cycle riders' fundraising.

At this time, Flowcodes for Venmo donations are available for individual fundraisers only, not teams.

The PMC Winter Cycle will send donors who make a gift of $250 or more a notification through our Venmo account informing them that their donation is 100 percent tax deductible and that they can email wintercycle@pmc.org to request a tax receipt.
