Question & Answers:
1. How can my company participate?
Your company can participate by organizing teams of employees, even friends and neighbors. Kevin often structures a Fun Run, race, or competition that helps make fundraising fun.
2. Is team membership limited to employees of the company?
No. Team participation is open to everyone. Employees are encouraged to get their families, friends, and neighbors involved. This encourages a greater sense of community, and allows more individuals to get involved and help others.
3. How is the money collected?
Each team member is responsible for collecting funds from supporters during the fundraiser.
4. How does a team raise funds?
Team members are responsible for raising funds from coworkers, friends, neighbors, family members, and other individuals who wish to back the team and support the cause. Kevin takes your commitment to raising funds seriously. He wants you to be successful in raising at least the minimum for your project to provide as much support as possible.

It isn't hard at all! Fundraisers give a chance for people of your community to give back to others. It is an exciting and beneficial event for all involved. Many individuals will be very excited and honored to be a part of your team.
6. How do we set a goal for the amount of money we want to raise?
A fundraising goal is established for the total project that is needed in your community. An additional fundraising goal is then established per participant. The fundraising commitment for each participant is established based on the number of participants and the total amount needed to be raised. Once participants reach their fundraising goal, money exceeding their amount can be applied to that same project or use it for other needs in the community.
7. How is the money used?
The money raised is to help further the specific purposes and goals of your fundraiser. The money is used to further develop the community in numerous projects and assist individuals in whatever specific needs they may have.
8. What are the fees for Kevin's appearances to help with your fundraiser?
Travel expenses to and from the engagement for Kevin and his assistant; car driving charges at 36.5 cents a mile; and airplane charges, including the cost of plane tickets, hotel room (handicapped accessible, meals, cab far, subway or rental car, if necessary). Kevin also receives a 10% honorarium of the gross revenue of the fundraiser, of which he donates a portion back to the Wheelchair Success Foundation, which he founded in order to help people permanently confined to a wheelchair receive financial support in order to continue their education after high school.
9. What accommodations does Kevin need?
Since he is in a wheelchair, a stage or platform is needed to raise Kevin high enough so the audience can see him. He will need a ramp, which is close to ADA standards so he can push himself up onstage. Kevin also needs an easel to put pictures on and a cassette tape or CD music player. Kevin needs a VCR or CD computer disk with projection screen or large TV screen so people in the audience can see the introduction video. A lavaliere (wireless) microphone is needed because Kevin uses his hands to move his wheelchair as he speaks.
