We do require you to create an account in order to sign up for a service on a calendar. However an account is not needed to make a donation or send a gift.
We require you create an account for a few reasons:
So that we can send you a reminder email about your event
To give the page organizer your contact information
To allow you to change or cancel the service you have signed up for
When you have an account and log in before signing up for a calendar item, it helps us to make sure the recipient receives support smoothly, and that you can get the information you need.
