When a donor gives you a check or when you hold an offline fundraiser for your BFG participation, those funds are Bench Points.
Bench Points are the only way an organization can donate to itself in Brackets For Good. You can find the Bench Points section under the Donations tab in your Nonprofit Locker Room.
Here is your example scenario:
A donor comes into your office and hands you a $100 check for BFG. You will take a picture of that check and upload it into the Bench Points section. To transfer the offline dollars to online points, you will take the company credit card (or someone's card within the organization that everyone trusts and is willing to do the transaction) to charge $100 to the card and then you would cash the check like normal.
We also want to know how you raised the funds in the description. If the donor walked into your office and handed you a check, or if they responded to a direct mail campaign for BFG, or if you raised cash by a bake sale/merchandise sale/a change jar, tell us that in your description.
Bench Points must be submitted by noon the day before the round ends. Your score will be reflected 24 hours after you submit the Bench Points.
