How do I create a Pledge-a-thon waiver?

Pledge-a-thon waivers can outline any issues relevant to your organization’s event. A waiver may cover information such as registration eligibility, registration process, transferability to registration, refund policy, charitable tax receipts, liability, or risks associated with Pledge-a-thon participation.
