Warriors are put to the test through a series of 10 challenges. Each challenge is focused on a different area of fund development, including social media, public speaking, media engagement and donor solicitation.
The challenges are scored and judged by a panel of experts. A winner will be declared each week, and prizes awarded along the way. The warrior team that raises the most for their organization through the Crowdrise Challenge wins $10,000 and will secure a spot in the final challenge. The other four will include the winner of the Social Media Challenge, and the Fast Pitch Challenge, along with two others, who will be selected based on their overall participation and performance. The five finalists will have one last chance to raise funds at the Final Challenge event. All will succeed, but only one will win the Charity Warriors Challenge and a second prize.

Join a scheduled Power Hour or request an individual meeting with a Charity Warriors Challenge alumna, mentor, or seasoned executive. The five finalists will each be assigned a team of advisors for the final two weeks of the challenge. The team will include a Charity Warrior alumna, a seasoned executive, and business leader.
