"A minimum fundraising commitment is required."
Let's be direct! How much? (I do plan on doing Boston someday, and I will probably need to get in on a charity slot because my times don't get me registration via other methods, but lay it out there what the ballpark figure is pls :-)
The Plan (big parts)→ /// April '14: Hampton, VA 24 Hour Run for Cancer (PR 80 Miles) /// Nov '14: New York Marathon /// Dec: Seashore State Park 50K /// April 2015: VA 24 Hour Run for Cancer (Goal: >80.1+Miles) ∞

Invitational Entry runners do not have to meet the time requirements set by the BAA.
an amazing likeness
..duplicate of srl's post...
Choosing my words carefully has never been my strength I've been known to be vague and often pointless
I'm going to go the "additional consideration" route. See y'all in Boston!
I was afraid of that level. 500 I can do (Such as for JFK-50 to get a 2 hr earlier start), but 5,000 is out of my budget for one race. While I am huge on supporting a couple select charities personally, I am one of those folks unable to ask others for charity money in order for me to run a race.
Hope I am not being too gruff in saying that the OP could just post: #1 what the committment level needed is, and #2, not post three different duplicate posts of the same thing. Seems like they are not considering the forum when they post multiple posts here....
I was totally kidding. I am usually totally kidding.
