The collected money of your fundraising event will not be payed out to you, but forwarded to the chosen project. Click on „forward donations to projects“ in the menu to the right on your fundraising page.
Forwarding the collected donations does not influence the progress bar of your fundraising event. You can forward the collected money after each donation or in the end of your fundraising event.
If you cannot forward the collected donations the project you have chosen may not have enough open needs. You can choose another project or send a message to the project manager (LINK) and ask him to add more needs.
