2017 Fundraising Program!

The Santa Barbara Triathlon is more than just a pretty race. We have heart, too – lots of it. That’s why we make such a big deal out of our annual Fundraising Program (and offer fabulous prizes to encourage enthusiastic participation – see below). This year our beneficiary is the Parks & Recreation Community Foundation (PARC). Funds will be earmarked for the renovation of the historic Santa Barbara Triathlon venue – The Cabrillo Pavilion and Bathhouse. Construction is set to begin early 2018. (Visit our Fundraising Campaign page and learn why this project is important!)

In addition to doing something meaningful for your community, raising money for our beneficiary can result in you winning some really cool prizes:  

Raise as little as $150 to start earning your prizes: RESERVED PARKING (for first 25 fundraisers), expedited check-in, & SB Triathlon branded socks. Raise a minimum of $500 and earn a FREE race entry for 2018. The top 5 fundraisers who raise at least $750 also win some very special prizes; click on the link below to see a complete listing of prize packages.

2017 Prize Packages will be posted soon. For now check out our 2016 campaign prizes for an example of the cool prizes you can win this year.

 Take 5 minutes and help us raise $25,000

When you register for the Santa Barbara Triathlon you will have the option to either create a unique Fundraising Team page or join an existing Fundraising Team with your friends. Either way a link to our Fundraising Team page will be included in your confirmation email from IMathlete. At that point you’re ready to invite people to donate via email and social media. Just send or include a link to your page. It’s that easy!

If you want to create a mass email, you can click on our SampleLetter2017 and cut and paste the text into your own email tool; don’t forget to include your fundraising page URL so they can go straight to your page and donate online. If you want to send that email to friends who prefer to donate with a check attach this form: DonorContributionSheet_17. Remind them to fill out the form and submit it with their check – that way we can be sure you get credit for it. If every Santa Barbara Triathlon participant gets 3 friends to donate $5 each we will raise over $25,000 for our beneficiary.
