Since launching our Chicago Marathon charity program in 2016, we’ve raised over $200,000 to benefit over 20 charities—and we’re excited to continue that tradition this year!
We’re inviting all Molex and Koch company employees* running the Bank of America Chicago Marathon to race for a cause that motivates and inspires you.
Molex will pay the processing and credit card fees for the first $100,000 in donations made on this site to allow the charities to receive 100% of the funds donated. Once donations surpass $100,000, donors will have the option of paying these fees or having them deducted from their donation.
Molex also will match donations made on this site up to a maximum of $100,000, with a match limit of $10,000 per charity. Only donations made through the CrowdRise site are eligible.
ELIGIBILITY & PROMOTION
To be eligible for this program, the charity must be a U.S. based 501(C)3 charity and listed on Guidestar.org and be hosted on this site. See the CrowdRise FAQs if you can't find your charity.
Please note that while Molex and Koch runners are encouraged to run for the charity of their choice, INDIVIDUAL solicitation of contributions using Molex resources is not allowed.
All participating charities will be promoted at the same time, between now and the October 13th race day, in multiple ways – watch for details!
*Only current employees of Molex, LLC, and its affiliates, including without limitation Koch Industries, Inc., (collectively, "Molex") who are registered for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon may host a fundraiser on this site.
