If you collect funds from a special event, you can submit a donation form and send a cheque in the mail but this may take more time to upload to your team members and your team ranking may not reflect this for a while.

The best way to get your event fundraising uploaded once you have raised the money is to divvy it up by Team Participant and input the donations online, to each team member via a Credit Card.
