For the Crossroads 5K Advanced Running Project has partnered with the Vandalia Recreation Fund which helps give opportunities to those at a socioeconomic disadvantage to compete in sports programs in the city of Vandalia.
How much does ARP donate to the Vandalia Recreation Fund?
That number depends on the success of the event. In 2019 we were able to donate over $900 to the Vandalia Recreation Fund. In 2020 with the pandemic we still donated $250 to the VRF.
Can I make an additional donation to the charity?
Absolutely! While registering their is a page that asks you if you would like to donate extra, 100% of that donation goes to the Vandalia Recreation Fund. Additionally at anytime you can visit RaceCrossroads.com and click "donate" to make a donation.
Is the Advanced Running Project a non-profit?
Advanced Running is not a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization, but don’t let a tax classification fool you. Supporting charities is part of the foundation of who we are and what we believe in as a company. Since our founding in 2018 we have donated $25,000+ to organizations in our community.
Is my registration tax deductible?
Unfortunately, no. While a portion of your registration fee will be donated to charity, we are not a 501(c)(3) charity and are therefore unable to provide tax receipts.
How do we know you donated the money?
After the event we will work with the city of Vandalia to make a final payment to them and will provide documentation of the acknowledgement letter we receive from the city of Vandalia on our Facebook page.
