4) Do I need to personalize my webpage page?

People who personalize their fundraising webpage to talk about why they support BBBSEMO typically raise more money than those who don’t personalize their webpage. It only takes a few minutes to add a personal picture and/or a few words about your relationship with BBBSEMO or who has been your personal mentor.


5) Can friends and family make a donation to me by going through the main website?

Yes, on the home page of the website, friends and family can locate you by clicking on the ‘Donate’ button. By typing in your name, they will be directed to your personalized webpage.


6) Can my sponsors pay by cash or check?

Sure! Most bowlers find it easier to keep track of checks. You can enter your donations into your HQ and then mail everything to our office and we'll credit the money to your personal fundraising goal.


7) Why is the ‘Donate’ search not finding a Bowler that I know has registered?

You must type in the first name or last name of the bowler exactly how they entered it when they registered. Try using just the first few letters of someone's name if you're not sure how it's spelled. If you have a problem locating a bowler that you are sure has registered, please contact us at 314.633.0047.
