Welcome to the non profit registration page. We are very excited to welcome your organization to the catfish family. We want to make sure we create the most effective way to help you raise funds and add a little fun to the mix.
We do not have a lot of requirements in order to register your non profit organization. But we do have a few. Let's go over those quickly.
1. Your non profit organizations must be registered with the Secretary of State as being a non profit.
2. Your non profit must be based out of Gaston County.
3. You will be required to appoint at least 1 person from your organizations (or more if you choose) to be your "catfish handler" during the races on SEPTEMBER 26TH AT 7PM. This person will be your organizations representation during the races. This persons tasks may include handling catfish, making announcements, helping cheer on your sponsored catfish to the finish line and various other tasks affiliated with your sponsored catfish.
Depending on how many sponsored catfish your organization has this task could take an hour or more.
Please fill out the registration form below to enter your organization. We will then choose 10 (or less depending on registrations) to participate in this fundraiser. Once we have chosen our non profits we will then open the non profit catfish sponsor form. We will also send your organization a marketing flyer to place your social media and website to help you spread the word.
We will wish you all good luck and we hope to see you all at the CATFISH races~!
