Challenge Funding Options

Self funding option
With the self funding option, you personally cover the full cost of the challenge, and raise as much sponsorship as you can. This means that the charity receives every pound that you raise thereafter. The full cost is made up of the deposit which is payable at the time of booking and the final balance which is payable twelve weeks prior to Overseas challenge and six weeks prior to UK challenge. The self funding option has no minimum sponsorship requirement, although you are still encouraged to raise as much money as you can for the charity.

Fundraising option
With this option, you pay your deposit when booking the challenge, and agree to raise the minimum amount of sponsorship for your charity. You will need to send your sponsorship money to the charity as you raise it. 100% of the minimum sponsorship required must be sent to the charity twelve weeks(overseas) and four weeks (UK) prior to challenge.  If you have raised the funds required, the charity will then pay the balance of your challenge costs. The charity benefits by keeping the remaining sponsorship money and every pound over and above that you raise.
