Fundraising Commitment

Run for Hope raises funds for New Hope Academy. We exist to provide life-changing experiences to our team members, but most importantly, to further the life-changing work of New Hope Academy.

The Fundraising Commitment

When you register for Run for Hope, you will be prompted to read and agree to the fundraising agreement.  This entitles you to receive all the benefits mentioned. In exchange, you agree to raise funds for New Hope Academy. The minimum amount is determined by which level you sign up for.  This can be accomplished through fundraising, a personal, 100% tax-deductible contribution, company matching, or some combination of the three.

Our Promise

We are committed to providing you with the best tools available to make fundraising as easy and enjoyable as possible. Click here to see an overview of our fundraising process. If you follow the proven steps outlined in our process, you should be able to meet and hopefully exceed your goal.

Important Fundraising Dates and Additional Information

Once you register for the team and begin training, you should start raising funds immediately.  There is an opt out date of  March 15, 2017. If the need to opt out is necessary, any monies raised to that point are non-refundable. If you cancel AFTER March 15, 2017 you will be held to your fundraising commitment. Exceptions may be granted for medical reasons, and will require a doctor’s note (send to Jennifer Beck at or fax to 615-261-4494).

April 23, 2017 at Midnight CST is the deadline to raise your minimum guarantee in one of the ways mentioned above, or allow New Hope Academy to charge your credit card for the difference between what you have raised and the goal amount. If you haven’t reached your fundraising minimum, your credit card on file will be charged the difference on Monday, April 24 or Tuesday, April 25, 2017.

We are grateful for your willingness to partner with us in the mission of hope!
