FAQs

What is Venmo?

Venmo is one of the most popular peer-to-peer payment platforms.

Do I need to install Venmo on my phone to use this Venmo Flowcode?

No, you do not need a Venmo account to activate your unique Donate by Venmo Flowcode. Your donors who use Venmo can donate to your fundraising even if you do not use Venmo because they are sending the money to the Pan-Mass Challenge’s Venmo account earmarked for your PMC fundraising.

What is a Flowcode?

Flowcodes are customized QR codes. The PMC is using them to facilitate Venmo gifts to PMC riders' fundraising.

Are Flowcodes available for PMC teams?

At this time, Flowcodes for Venmo donations are available for individual fundraisers only, not teams.

What happens when someone donations $250 or more through Venmo?

The Pan-Mass Challenge will send donors who make a gift of $250 or more a notification through our Venmo account informing them that their donation is 100 percent tax deductible and that they can email panmass@pmc.org to request a tax receipt.
