Meet Laura Donaldson from GoFundMe! As you know RAGBRAI cyclists are some of the most community-driven and passionate people. Now, with the power of GoFundMe paired with the kindness of this community, it is easy to use your ride as a way to raise money for a cause you care about. Laura is going to tell us a bit more about GoFundMe and how you can easily raise money for your favorite non profit while you are riding your bike across Iowa.

AP and Murph have chosen the Dream Team of Des Moines as their GoFundMe non-profit. Tuesday of RAGBRAI is Dream Team Day and if you haven’t heard, they have invited all of us to participate in their scavenger hunt! Find out more at www.dreamteamdesmoines.org/hunt

    THIS IS A LIE.
    DO NOT DONATE TO THE RAGBRAI SPONSORED GO FUND ME!
    One of the MASON CITY non-profits that was listed as receiving money from RAGBRAI as part of their “Community Fund” for 2022, NEVER RECEIVED THE FUNDS.
    RAGBRAI used the non-profits name on the go-fund-me, and in other materials, advertising that they were going to donate money.
    The non-Profit in turn advertised and promoted to people that they should donate money to the community fund thru RAGBRAI, and the last correspondence that the non-profit had with RAGBRAI was a statement that “it should take a month or so to get a check” and that was the last that the non-profit ever heard about it. still no money almost a full year later!

    RAGBRAI STATED AND ADVERTISED THEY WOULD GIVE MONEY TO THAT NON-PROFIT, EVEN GOING AS FAR AS TO COLLECT THE NON-PROFITS EIN NUMBER AND OTHER INFORMATION…. AND THEN NEVER GAVE ANY MONEY TO THAT NON-PROFIT.
