HOW MUCH SHOULD I DONATE?


THE NWC appreciates if donations are made within the capacity of the donor:


Compare The NWC with other events such as a Marathon, Etape du Tour, Marmotte ... consider tax deductibility in France


What is the cause worth to you?


As guideline for Paris a minimum of €125 and for all other locations at least €75 per participant are appreciated.


It is at the citiy organizers discretion to remind those who donated less than the suggested minimums to increase their contribution to the cause.



WHY SHOULD I BE A FUNDRAISER?

  • A special recognition will be awarded to fundraisers

  • Optionally you will be recognized on the NWC Family page as fundraiser

The NWC changed in 2020 with Covid the business model:


  • The volunteers of The NWC gave the event at no entrance fee to its participants.

The model has proven to be very supportive of the spirit of The NWC and  it is more in line with The NWCs core values.  


Contributions from companies are used to finance the operations, the events and the growth of The NWC to allow NWC events to be "free" and donations only!
