Contestants aren’t obligated to donate but are encouraged to give US$5 or however much they feel comfortable contributing. Those who would like to contribute to National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame can do so through this linked web page.

The National Museum of Racing houses a diverse collection of art, artifacts, and memorabilia that seeks to document the social, economic, political, and cultural history of Thoroughbred racing in America from the eighteenth century to the present. The following is a description of a description of the National Museum’s mission in the words of The BloodHorse Magazine:

The National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame is a magical place that celebrates horse racing’s history through art, interactive exhibits, and its Hall of Fame. The Museum survives through donations, and it’s a must-visit destination for horse lovers of all kinds.

Additionally, charities represented in the weekly Free Friday Fun(d)raiser contest will earn points in the annual standings. The charities will earn 60, 20, and 10 points when their proxies finish first, second and third respectively. Additionally, charities will amass an additional 1 point for each player who represented them but did not finish in the top 3. At the end of the year, the top 5 charities in the annual points standings will receive 60%, 20%, 10%, 5%, and 5% of the annual donation pool. The annual donation pool is the combination of a $100 donation from the host and advertising fees on the FFF web pages.
