FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW DOES FUNDRAISING WORKS THROUGH THIS SITE? You will sign up as a Team Member and then forward information/links asking for donations to your social circles.  It is very easy.  Sign up and you will see!  The actual donation process takes 2 minutes.

HOW DOES THE KHALILI FOUNDATION RECEIVE FUNDS RAISED?  Your fundraising tallies will be kept on your Team Member page and after the LA Marathon 5K and LA Marathon are complete, a check will be cut to the Khalili Foundation for all of our cumulative donations by Network for Good (the name that will appear on the credit card invoice for your Khalili Center donation.)  You will also receive an email confirmation of your donation for your files.  Please note: Network for Good is Crowdrise’s fundraising platform partner.  

THE KHALILI FOUNDATION IS A REGISTERED 501C3 WITH TAX EXEMPTION STATUS:  Our EIN # is: 27-2496819. 

SHOULD YOU MAKE A DONATION? - RAISE FUNDS FROM YOUR SOCIAL CIRCLE? – OR BOTH??  If you’re joining our “Team Orange,” we thank you for your help in fighting childhood obesity through prevention and education.  We appreciate any contribution you make.  Whether you choose to make a donation or you decide to raise funds from your social circle is ultimately up to you and what you feel most comfortable with. 

WHERE THE FUNDRAISING GOES:  Know that as a grassroots non-profit, the Khalili Foundation is on the ground in several very disadvantaged areas/schools in Los Angeles County.  Know that every dollar you donate will directly help children, teens and families who are most at-risk for obesity. 

HOW TO ASK FOR PEOPLE TO SUPPORT THIS WORTHWHILE CAUSE:  As most of you have had surgery and are BEING THE CHANGE in your own lives, your social circle (family, friends, co-workers) will know how much you have done in your own lives to make healthy and positive changes.  We believe that asking for donations to now have you PAY IT FORWARD to others in need, will be an easy for anyone who knows you.

WHERE DO WE MEET THE DAY OF THE LA MARATHON 5K?  We will be in touch with you shortly with more information and exact location of the Khalili Foundation Charity Booth. The LA Marathon 5K is at Dodger Stadium.
